Radware’s SDN security application is integrated into the OpenDaylight Project controller framework, Extreme Networks launches Purview application analytics, and Cyan’s Blue Planet platform is selected by the Jeollanam-Do province in South Korea.
Radware releases Open SDN Security Application. Radware (RDWR) announced its contribution to the OpenDaylight Project with Defense4All, the industry’s first open SDN security application to be integrated into OpenDaylight. As a part of Hydrogen, the first OpenDaylight SDN controller framework, Defense4All offers carriers and cloud providers DoS and DDoS detection and mitigation as a native network service. Defense4All gives complete abstraction of the anti-DoS resource provisioning and alignment with network operations to provide, manage and monitor DoS protection as a service within the SDN ecosystem. “With Defense4All, we can revolutionize the way security services are implemented and managed,” says David Aviv, vice president, advanced services, Radware. “By using the programmability of SDN technologies to collect statistics, analyze the information and control the infrastructure layer to proactively defend against DoS and DDoS network flood attacks, we transform point security solutions into highly scalable network services that are easy to provision and offer tremendous cost reduction.”
Extreme Networks introduces Purview application analytics. Extreme Networks (EXTR) introduced Purview, a first-of-its-kind solution built on patented ASIC technology. Purview provides visibility into application use across the network, helping organizations in four ways: improving the experience of connected users; enhancing organizations understanding of user engagement; optimizing application performance; protecting against malicious or unapproved system use. Purview integrates with network data that carries context of users, devices, locations and applications in use – capturing network data and then aggregating, analyzing, correlating, characterizing, and finally reporting on insight into how and why systems and users perform. Purview is the official Wi-Fi analytics solution for the NFL, available to all 32 teams. ”With the explosion of enterprise mobility, social and collaborative applications, network infrastructure is now viewed as an enterprise IT asset and a key contributor to optimizing business applications and strategic intelligence,” said Rohit Mehra, vice president, network infrastructure, IDC. “Solutions such as Purview are unique in terms of providing rich application analytics integrated within a network management platform, so enterprise IT is enabled with deep visibility and control of data, applications and users, for better business decisions, easily and efficiently.”
Cyan selected by South Korean Jeollanam-Do Provincial Government. Cyan (CYNI) announced that its Blue Planet SDN Platform and Z-Series packet-optical hardware have been selected by the Jeollanam-Do province in South Korea. Deployed together with partner Telefield, the new network will deliver e-government applications in support of the two million citizens living in the province. Cyan and Telefield were selected as the exclusive SDN and packet-optical solution provider for the provincial government’s Carrier Ethernet network transformation project. Applications delivered by the network upgrade include Internet, VoIP and video conferencing. “Cyan’s Blue Planet Platform lays the foundation for some of the most sophisticated, but easy-to-use and manage networks around the world,” said Michael Hatfield, president, Cyan. “By combining our SDN and packet-optical technology with Telefield’s expertise and support in South Korea, the province and its citizens will now be able to benefit from an advanced network, scalable for any e-government service or application.”
