Corero reveals SmartWall Threat Defence Director enhancements

Corero Network Security has announced the latest enhancements to its SmartWall Threat Defence Director solution, allowing Corero and Juniper customers to maintain business continuity with DDoS protection solution and delivering that as a value-added service.

As DDoS attacks continue to grow in magnitude, frequency, and sophistication, it is no longer good business practice to address this growing problem with traditional black-holing, out-of-band scrubbing centres, on-demand cloud services, or manual intervention. To help bridge this gap, Juniper Networks and Corero Network Security are continuing to deliver new solutions against DDoS attacks by leveraging Juniper Networks’ MX Series Universal Routing Platforms and SmartWall software intelligence.

This joint DDoS solution reportedly delivers an automatic, real-time, detection and line-rate mitigation solution, which can scale from 100 Gbps to 40Tbps as a customer grows, ultimately leveraging packet-level monitoring, automated machine analysis and high-performance infrastructure-based enforcement across the network edge. 

Some of the enhancements made to the SmartWall Threat Defence Director (TDD) include: 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 and finally, 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.
