Cavium™ OCTEON III Multi-Core Processor Family Powering Next Generation Advanced Security Appliances
SAN JOSE, CA, March 1, 2016 – Cavium, Inc., (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for enterprise, data center, wired and wireless networking, today announced that its latest processing technologies are enabling a new wave of advanced security appliances. Based upon the latest generation of scalable security products including OCTEON® III multicore processors and NITROX® security processors, these solutions address a wide range of price and performance points to allow secure scaling across the whole spectrum of deployment scenarios utilizing a common architectural and software framework within product lines.
With the rapid growth of multi-tenant data centers and expansion of enterprise boundaries over the cloud, vulnerability of the network infrastructure has increased. This trend mandates implementation of security at multiple layers of the network. In addition, Cloud data centers are securing all networking infrastructure to prevent attacks and security breaches. Enterprises, data centers and service provider infrastructure are driving to move and deploy comprehensive Layer 3 to Layer 7 security across every node as well as fully encrypted node to node traffic both within the LAN as well as the WAN. These trends are driving strong momentum in the security segment for Cavium™ products. Cavium continues to be a leading solution provider in this market with a comprehensive product portfolio.
The OCTEON III product line provides a multicore processing platform spanning anywhere from 1 to 48 cores on a single SoC with advanced on-chip acceleration for high-throughput networking, encryption, and deep packet inspection supporting throughputs as high as 100Gbps. The OCTEON III generation provides a major increase in compute and adds the latest encryption algorithm support. Additionally, the deep packet inspection technology is able to identify millions of different threat patterns with very high-complexity signatures.
“Cavium's OCTEON III product line has provided a substantial leap in processing performance, throughput, and security acceleration capabilities. Our continued collaboration is key to enabling Palo Alto Networks to deliver a whole new generation of products with unprecedented capability to counter the massive increase in the number and sophistication of security threats”, said Barun Kar, Vice President of Engineering at Palo Alto Networks.
“We are extremely pleased to work with Palo Alto Networks and provide critical technologies to support their rapid innovation and deployment of new security platforms”, said Raghib Hussain, Corporate VP/GM and CTO of Cavium Inc.
