Next-Generation Security: Virtualizing IPS for Performance and Scale

Presented by

Rajkumar Jalan, CTO of A10 Networks, Sab Gosal, Network Security Segment Mgr, Intel & Matt Jonkman, President, OISF

About this talk

Network functions virtualization (NFV) and cloud computing are the next generation of network-based computing, since they can deliver both software and hardware as on-demand resources. While this represents a transformation towards a much-needed flexible software-driven infrastructure, one of the significant concerns with this transformation is security. In this web seminar, we discuss network security in a virtualized environment focusing on these key points: •How to virtualize security applications, such as IPS/IDS, in a way that scales linearly while maintaining performance. •Real-world use-case examples of security virtualization highlighting the challenges and corresponding solutions. •A review of virtual machine architectures based on the Intel® Architecture coupled with key enabling technologies, such as Hyperscan pattern matching, used to drive the scale and performance of industry-leading IPS/IDS use-cases such as Suricata.
