Software Pattern Matching Solution for Security Applications

HyperScan* is a high-performance regular expression (regex) pattern matching library that enables security applications to scale their deep packet inspection (DPI) performance linearly to up to 160 Gbps. It delivers rich, content scanning functionality that allows equipment developers to dramatically increase performance in a variety of applications: intrusion prevention (IPS), firewall, anti-spam, anti-virus (AV), deep packet inspection (DPI), unified threat management (UTM), and web and e-mail content filtering.

The software takes advantage of multi-core processing to scale up and down the product line from small sub-Gbps appliances to large multi-Gbps network equipment. Easy to integrate, the solution supports a wide range of Intel® processors and operating systems, and is designed for the most demanding network security applications.
