APCON Products on Display at RSA Conference 2014
IntellaFlex 36 Port 10G Time Stamping and Packet Slicing Bladehas the highest precision time stamping available at sub 10nS resolution, and supports the most accurate timing sources in the industry. The same blade also packet slices with precision to provide numerous security benefits. For example, packet slicing can be used to remove sensitive customer data such as credit card numbers, social security numbers and account information embedded within packets destined for monitoring tools. It can also discard packet payload information sent to IDS tools to reduce overall data volume, increase IDS tool performance, enhance network visibility and save scarce budget resources.
Multi Stage Filtering is APCON’s new industry-unique filtering technique. MSF is managed within a graphical user interface and offers limitless flexibility in filtering rules. Providing pinpoint accuracy, APCON’s filter stack allows users to specify exactly which packets are to be delivered to each egress port on the switch, eliminating the threat of oversubscribed ports and dropped packets.
TITAN provides a single, centralized point of switch management for network monitoring in a multi-switch environment. TITAN can help share expensive security analysis devices throughout the network.
Leading up to RSA Conference 2014, APCON released a free downloadable eBook titled “The Fight for Full Network Visibility in a Dangerous World” to educate network security professionals on how to confront evolving security challenges by achieving full network visibility.
For 20 years, APCON has consistently delivered smart, stable and scalable technology solutions to Fortune 1000 companies, service providers and customers in more than 40 countries seeking total data center visibility and security. APCON’s Series 3000 and IntellaFlex blades assure superior network monitoring while supporting traffic analysis and streamlining network management and security.
