The need: fine-grained IP traffic visibility to enable comprehensive network perimeter protection
Web applications and web servers are increasingly becoming prime targets for cyberattacks because regular perimeter security solutions only secure the network level and control access to it but do not focus on the application layer or end-user processes such as HTTP and SMTP. Attacks on this layer, such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS) and DDoS attacks, present an enormous challenge, as malicious code can masquerade as valid client requests and normal application data. In order to provide customers with a strong and reliable solution, Indigo Software needed a high-performance DPI engine that would enable its firewalls to analyze HTTP requests and responses to detect malicious behavior.
Indigo Software chooses DPI engine from ipoque for fast and up-to-date classification capabilities
Indigo Software was looking for a DPI solution to meet its increasing need for fast performance with a high application and protocol classification accuracy. Furthermore, they required a DPI technology that would not impact their throughput and receive regular application and protocol signature updates without needing extensive custom development and maintenance. With R&S®PACE 2, they found an easy-to-integrate DPI engine that operates in real time at a speed of multiple Gbps. The weekly protocol and application signature update ensures that Indigo Software firewalls can rely on up-to-date classifications when filtering network traffic.
“We had evaluated open source alternatives as the core for our web application firewall; however, they did not offer the performance and reliability required for our customers. The DPI engine R&S®PACE 2 gave us what we needed—from carrier-class performance and reliability to detection of applications, protocols and even encrypted applications to excellent developer documentation and sample code.”
