Pace 2 DPI engine secures networks says Rohde & Schwarz

Deep packet inspection (DPI) technology addresses a range of network security challenges including malware and non-malware threats. At the RSA Conference in San Francisco, Rohde & Schwarz demonstrates what it claims is the highest performing DPI software on the market.

Available from ipoque, a Rohde & Schwarz company, the scalable, and customisable turnkey DPI software secures network and protects organisations against cyber attacks. For network security vendors, the R&S PACE 2 DPI engine from Rohde & Schwarz delivers network visibility. Incorporating DPI adds IP traffic analytics capabilities to network security devices and provides granular information on applications and protocols for proper classification.

R&S PACE 2 classifies thousands of applications and protocols, provides content and metadata extraction regardless of whether the protocols use advanced obfuscation, port hopping techniques or encryption, and offers metrics and heuristics from IP traffic in real time. When applied to network security solutions, developers can achieve reliable application visibility, says Rohde &Schwarz, adding that it allows for facilitating the secure delivery of critical applications and services.

R&S Pace2 DPI software is used by Saint Security in its network-based advanced malware response solution MNX to identify, analyse, judge and block malicious activity. The R&S Pace 2 engine extracts file content and metadata to identify potentially dangerous executables caused by advanced persistent threats (APTs). By embedding the DPI engine, Saint Security unlocks the full potential of artificial intelligence (AI)-based analysis methodologies to fingerprint cyber attacks.

The DPI software by Rohde & Schwarz will be presented at this year’s RSA Conference in San Francisco at booth 3927/16, April 16–20, 2018.
