Solarflare’s real-time, distributed, active monitoring and security defends against DDOS attacks, data theft, unauthorized access, hostile intrusions and advanced persistent threats
Solarflare, the leader in application-intelligent 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet (10/40GbE) technologies, today announced it has been named to the JPM Securities Fast 50 list of hottest privately held security and networking companies. The Fast 50 recognizes companies that are leveraging powerful competitive advantages that are believed to be engines of innovation, representing a new generation of disruptive technologists who challenge the current status quo and traditional market landscape.
Solarflare was recognized for its breakthroughs in the information security market, in particular the creation of the first distributed, active security solution that is implemented within network servers. Solarflare’s SolarSecure and SolarCapture product lines provide enhanced blocking, filtering, and packet capture capabilities that can be used to protect against a wide range of threats, including DDOS attacks, data theft, unauthorized access, hostile intrusions and advanced persistent threats. Further, the products can be used to demonstrate compliance to increasing regulatory requirements.
Solarflare’s new Capture SolarSystem is an open, turnkey soft appliance that delivers real-time, distributed, precision packet capture for data retention, query and threat analytics. Capture SolarSystem empowers firms to effectively capture high volumes of data, enforce security policies to detect malicious traffic and trigger real-time protection or reporting mechanisms that prevent further breaches, all without requiring additional hardware.
"This recognition reflects our continuous innovation in the rapidly expanding areas of network monitoring and security," said Russell Stern, CEO of Solarflare. "With over 1,400 clients worldwide, Solarflare’s breakthrough technology is being adopted by not only the financial services industry but also healthcare, media, government and other sectors. Our security solutions enable enterprises to make more intelligent decisions on real-time threats and protect sensitive data at the server level, while dramatically improving network performance."
According to ESG research, the market for server-based packet capture, packet processing and monitoring will grow substantially, reaching nearly $1B by 2018. This growth will occur in enterprise data centers and clouds, and will benefit from the continued growth in virtualization and the emergence of software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV). The analyst firm highlighted that Solarflare is well positioned for transforming the market by leveraging network data to address network performance, security, regulatory compliance and demanding SLA requirements.
