Intel’s McAfee subsidiary has launched a network intrusion prevention system appliance intended to deliver up to 40 gigabits per second of throughput to help customers address network demands.
The Network Security Platform NS-series is based on Intel technology and has scalable architecture and capacity to run IPS services, McAfee said Thursday.
McAfee says the appliance is designed with high port density intended to provide customers flexible deployment options.
Pat Calhoun, McAfee’s senior vice president and general manager of network security, said IPS providers should consider services such as application visibility and situational and behavioral analysis to address new threats.
“Security buyers seek more application visibility, more situational or context awareness of network interactions, and greater control over the content coming into and out of their organizations,” Eric Ahlm, Gartner research director, said in a report.
