Corero Network Security plc (AIM: CNS.L), a leading provider of real-time, high-performance, automated Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) cyber defense solutions, has released the latest version of its award-winning SmartWall Threat Defense Director product. These new features make it easier than ever for Corero and Juniper clients to keep their businesses running by providing a cutting-edge, an automatic DDoS Protection solution and deploy it as a value-added service to their downstream customers.

Traditional blackholing, out-of-band scrubbing centres, on-demand cloud services, and human intervention are no longer viable business practises as DDoS attacks continue to expand in scale, frequency, and sophistication. Juniper Networks and Corero Network Security are continuing their long-standing and successful partnership to create a groundbreaking new solution against DDoS attacks using Juniper NetworksTM MX Series Universal Routing Platforms and Corero Network Security’s SmartWall software intelligence. This integrated DDoS solution provides automatic, real-time detection and line-rate mitigation, scaling from 100 Gbps to 40 Tbps as a customer’s needs develop. Across the network edge, it uses always-on packet-level monitoring, automated machine analysis, and high-performance infrastructure-based enforcement.

Today, we are highlighting some of the enhancements made to our SmartWall Threat Defense Director (TDD):

  • Visibility into 5G mobile traffic for subscriber-side DDoS protection with GTP payload inspection;
  • Attack source Geolocation and Autonomous System awareness IP intelligence Plug-in;
  • DDoS protection as a service with multi-tenant Service Portal and Tenant-Awareness Plug-in;
  • Flexible upstream Traffic Control with BGP policy for saturation prevention and multi-vendor support.

“The newest enhancements to SmartWall TDD now make it easier than ever for customers to deliver automatic, real-time DDoS protection. Our partnership with Juniper allows both Corero and Juniper to deploy an industry leading DDoS protection solution, leveraging their SDN-enabled MX Series routers and Corero’s software intelligence. These software enhancements enable us to deliver leading protection against the growing threat of DDoS.” said Corero CTO, Ashley Stephenson.
