As enterprises eagerly adopt new technologies relating to IIoT and mobile Edge computing, they often stumble upon unforeseen challenges.
Challenges such as the exponential growth in the number of connected mobile devices, increased needs for bandwidth, more and more sophisticated attacks and sometimes unexpected operational overheads.
In addition to the aforementioned challenges, enterprises must also choose a hardware solution that enables the needed next-generation firewall (NGFW) technologies while minimizing overall costs because management complexity, lack of interoperability, unified security complication, user unfriendly UX could all happen, raising the possibility of not meeting the compliance requirements therefore resulting in a significant increase in overall operating costs.
Lanner NCA-6520 is a 2U rackmount network appliance powered by two 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors is Lanner’s first NFVI-ready network appliance and a verified Intel Select Solution for accelerating time-to-market NFV deployments. Its dual CPUs each supports up to 40 cores and 768GB DDR4 memory capacity for powerful network virtualization applications.
This appliance is an optimized NFVI platform for virtualized network function (NFV), Hyperscan, Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) software and it comes integrated with fully-featured accelerators for offloading packet encryption computing, significantly boosting AI insights with Intel QuickAssist Technology (Intel QAT), Intel Turbo Boost Technology and Intel Deep Learning Boost.
Designed with flexibility for NFVI service deployments to address evolving customer requirements, the NCA-6520 features up to 8 NIC modules slots and takes advantage of Lanner’s F.A.S.T. purpose-built modular kits that specifically work with Lanner’s high-end network computing appliances. F.A.S.T. kits offer flexibility, adaptability, scalability and transformability by enabling connectivity and functionality, spanning from 10/25/40/100G copper/fiber interface, Wi-Fi/LTE connectivity, NVMe storage, 4K video transcoding and PCIe expansion capabilities.
The NCA-6520 is ideal as a NGFW with a flexible networking interface capable of processing multiple connections. Its high-speed connectivity and generous port density together make it an ideal intrusion prevention appliance for enterprise Edge and data centers. With its robust performance, 24/7/365 availability and validated security effectiveness, the NCA-6520, as a NGFW platform and when infused with a solution provider’s proprietary OS that features a modern UI, intuitive workflows and user-first UX, is proven to be capable of processing millions of encrypted and unencrypted connections to deliver the uncompromised security required for large businesses.
With that said, two of the most competitive advantageous benefits offered by the NCA-6520, when coupled with the said OS, are unified policy and multi-instances.
Unified policy (layer 3 to 7) reduces rule management overhead and provides a centralized location for policy configuration by combining access and security controls in a single policy. Network security services, including anti-virus, anti-spyware, threat protection, intrusion prevention and geo-IP filtering, can be enforced per policy in order to deliver even greater flexibility.
Furthermore, running multiple independent firewall instances on the NCA-6520 is made possible via the multi-instance, containerized architecture, eliminating the daunting task of managing multiple appliances. Being able to establish degrees of separation across business units or customers greatly facilitates enterprises meet their compliance requirements.
A NGFW solution based on Lanner’s NCA-6520, while running the aforementioned proprietary operation system, delivers features designed for modern enterprises and meets the demand for advanced security for modern businesses.
The NCA-6520 is one of Lanner’s high-performance network security appliances that feature high-frequency processors, built-in firmware security, crypto acceleration, NIC module slots, a broad selection of expansion capabilities that include 1/10/25/40/100G copper/fiber interface, NVMe SSD storage, 4K video transcoding and Wi-Fi/LTE connectivity.
They are ideal for SASE, NGFW, UTM, application delivery, WAN optimization and hyperscale security.
