In today’s business landscape, enterprises are relying more and more on cloud-based web applications to offer 24/7 serviceability, enhance competitiveness and expand user bases. Whether these web applications are deployed on –premises with private cloud settings or in cloud infrastructure with large data center, they have become frequently exposed to cyber criminals and suffered from web service outages caused by advanced cyber attacks, such as DDoS, spear-phishing, and SQL injection. According to Q3, 2016 State of Internet Security released by Akamai, in the Web Application Attack Frequency, SQLi accounted for nearly 50% of observed web attacks.
Life at the edge made easy with NFV platform for virtualized Customer Premise Equipment (vCPE)
Taipei, Taiwan, February 23, 2017 –Lanner Electronics Inc. (TAIEX 6245) together with Enea® (NASDAQ OMX Nordic:ENEA) today announced a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) of a commercial Network Function Virtualization (NFV) solution built on OPNFV running on both x86 and ARM based COTS hardware. Using Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) virtual Customer Premise Equipment (vCPE) brings a promise of lower cost and lower power consumption, and equips customers with better architectural choice for their specific use case.
[San Francisco, USA - February 13, 2017] –Lanner Electronics, Inc (TAIEX 6245), a global leader in network appliances, is partnering with Versa Networks to showcase a live demonstration of their next generation software-defined security (SD-Security) solution at RSA Conference 2017 (#N4803) from Feb. 13 to Feb. 17, in San Francisco, USA. Lanner and Versa have tested and validated an integrated SD-security solution that combines Lanner’s virtual CPE equipment FW-7573 and Versa Networks highly-flexible SD-Security software. The joint solution enables service providers to centrally and cost-effectively manage software-defined security at their network customers’ sites, to delivers flexibility and cost advantages for creating agile and profitable managed services.
Network security is such a critical function that communications service providers (CommSPs) want to ensure that virtualized network security services offer the same performance and functionality as their legacy network counterparts. Recognizing this customer requirement, Lanner Electronics,* an Intel® Network Builders ecosystem member, partnered with industry leaders to assemble components of a network security solution to demonstrate to CommSPs how this technology can be integrated to meet their needs.
F.A.S.T. solutions are purpose-built modular kits developed for enhancing Lanner’s high-end network computing appliances, namely the FW-8896, the FW-8894 and the NCA-5510. These multi-functional modular kits come in the N2S, the N3S or the NCS2 form factor and aim to deliver flexibility, adaptability, scalability and transformability for all compatible appliances’ connectivity, storage and open compute capabilities.
