Indigo Software embeds R&S®PACE 2

Customer product: Next generation firewall

Logo Indigo Software

“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 Rohde & Schwarz 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.”

Background information

In order to provide customers with a strong and reliable solution, Indigo Software was in need of a high-performance DPI engine that would enable its firewalls to analyze HTTP requests and responses to detect malicious behavior. 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. R&S®PACE 2 also receives weekly protocol and application signature updates which ensures that Indigo Software firewalls can rely on up-to-date classifications when filtering traffic.
After Indigo Software integrated the DPI engine R&S®PACE 2 into its firewall, customer satisfaction increased greatly because they instantly saw significant improvements in application performance and availability as well as a reduction in lag time. Vulnerabilities in customers’ apps are now eliminated before threat actors can exploit them.
