London & Marlborough, MA – October 18, 2017Corero Network Security(LSE: CNS), a leading provider of real-time DDoS defense solutions, announced today the availability of its SmartWall Network Threat Defense – Virtual Edition (vNTD) with full detect and mitigate capabilities.

“Corero is meeting the demand for real-time DDoS mitigation with an expansive portfolio of solutions for organizations looking to take control of the DDoS threat, eliminate attacks automatically and protect their network infrastructure to maintain service availability in the face DDoS attacks,” said Sean Newman, Director of Product Management, Corero Network Security.

SmartWall vNTD, now available for KVM and vSphere platforms, enables the flexibility to choose physical or virtual form-factors when deploying DDoS protection.

  • Mitigation deployed, in up to 10Gbps increments, at line-rate speeds
  • Protection scales to terabits per deployment
  • Industry leading performance per virtual CPU core
  • Mixed physical and virtual NTD deployments managed from single a console

SmartWall vNTD provides the scalability, agility and cost flexibility required to deliver DDoS protection for virtualized server infrastructures and SDN/NFV networks, enabling elastically scalable deployments, which can be based on demand for the applications and services being protected.

The expansion of Corero’s SmartWall portfolio with vNTD also enables third-party products, including Firewalls, IPS solutions and other security infrastructure to be enhanced with real-time DDoS mitigation.

This addition to Corero’s portfolio underscores our leadership in delivering robust, automated DDoS protection to the market,” adds Newman.
