Force10 Networks has acquired privately held MetaNetworks Inc., a provider of line-rate 10 gigabit intrusion detection and prevention technology. The acquisition of MetaNetworks brings with it a customer base of advanced research networks operated by U.S. government organizations and combines Force 10's expertise in high performance Ethernet switch/routers with the industry's only commercially available line-rate 10 gigabit intrusion prevention system to secure high performance networks against malicious traffic and attacks.
"Force10 was the first to deliver line-rate 10 Gigabit switching and routing, and now with the industry's only line-rate 10 Gigabit intrusion detection and prevention technology, we are extending our leadership to the rapidly growing security market," said Marc Randall, president and CEO of Force10 Networks. "With the integration of MetaNetworks, we can build and secure the fastest networks in the world, increasing our value proposition to our customers."
High performance intrusion detection and prevention technology is a flexible inline network security mechanism designed to detect malicious packets and proactively stop intrusions by blocking the offending traffic. Traditional intrusion detection and prevention systems lack the processing power to inspect traffic at line-rate 10 gigabit speeds, forcing network managers to sacrifice performance for security. The integration of MetaNetworks' innovative technology brings Force10 the ability to detect and prevent network intrusions without impacting performance, even in line-rate 10 gigabit Ethernet networks.
