Mellanox Federal Driving Real-Time Cyber Security Solutions in the Government Space

The theme for GEOINT 2017 is Advancing Capabilities to Meet Emerging Threats. Nowhere is this theme more applicable than with Mellanox Federal and we’ll be showcasing an impressive array of cyber security solutions.

Hosted and produced by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF), a non-profit, non-lobbying educational organization, the annual GEOINT Symposium is the nation’s largest gathering of industry, academia, and government to include Defense, Intelligence and Homeland Security Communities as well as commercial, Fed/Civil, State and Local geospatial intelligence stakeholders. The event annually attracts more than 4,000 attendees from all over the world, including Mellanox Federal.

Our focus for the show is delivering the message to our partners and customers that Mellanox Federal Systems is delivering Real Time Cyber Security for a wide variety of government applications including HPC, Big Data and Network Monitoring. Mellanox’s software-defined network security solutions are enabling swift adaption to counter emerging threats aimed at government assets with open platform solutions and no-compromise accelerated security delivering 25G, 40G, 50G and 100G line-rate networking.

As security concerns in government data centers continue to mount, addressing these concerns has been hampered by the inability of many CPU-based products to handle today’s exponential data growth. Mellanox Federal is delivering cost effective and hardware-accelerated security solutions that are fast, flexible, and programmable.

Powerful security solutions aimed at government applications now include Mellanox’s robust Indigo network processor which is capable of over 400Gb/s of L2-L7 advanced packet processing, BlueField network adapters for complex security applications and the Innova FPGA enhanced network adapters for fully reconfigurable acceleration.

The Indigo L2-L7 solution offers powerful packet processing capabilities, including routing and firewall functions, intrusion prevention (IPS) and detection (IDS), application recognition, DDoS prevention and more. Indigo hardware acceleration features, coupled with targeted software libraries, have demonstrated stateful packet processing at record rates of 500Gb/s and deep packet inspection (DPI) at 320Gb/s.

The BlueField family of devices addresses an increasing need in the industry for higher levels of SoC (System-on-Chip) integration that simplify system design, lower total power, and reduce overall system cost. Software-defined security functions and a secure chip architecture enable BlueField to act as a secure “computer in front of the computer” for true distributed security.

Innova combines unprecedented performance security protocols delivering world-leading endpoint IPsec encryption performance and demonstrating more than three times higher throughput and more than four times better CPU utilization when compared to x86 software-based server offerings.

Mellanox will be exhibiting at the GEOINT Symposium 2017, June 5-7, booth no. 712, in the San Antonio Convention Center, San Antonio, TX. Please drop by and see Mellanox Federal, along with our Innova solutions, Bluefield and Indigo products.
