Tilera's TILE-Gx Powers AhnLab's DDoS Protection System (DPS) Appliances

Programmable DDoS Attack Mitigation Solution to Be Showcased at RSA 2013

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 25, 2013) - (RSA Booths #2751 and #951) -- Tilera® Corporation, the leader in 64-bit manycore general purpose processors, announced that AhnLab, a leading provider of information security products and services, has selected the TILE-Gx™ processor family to power its AhnLab DDoS Protection System (DPS) series appliance.

AhnLab selected the TILE-Gx processor as it provides the unique combination of unparalleled performance, best in class network latency and a standard C-based Linux programming environment enabling faster time to market.

The increased use of mobile devices driven by BYOD policies, along with the transition of enterprise applications to the cloud is reshaping security infrastructure. The severity of security threats has changed to more advanced persistent and targeted attacks that disrupt network operation, and compromise sensitive information. As a result, next-generation security systems need the intelligence to appropriately counter the rapidly evolving threats, while enhancing their capability to process very high bandwidth IP traffic.

AhnLab DPS 10000 appliance blocks a maximum of 20Gbps inbound DDoS traffic and manages a maximum of 30 Mpps inbound traffic flow throughput utilizing AhnLab's patented realtime traffic verification algorithms. The appliance incorporates features such as self-learning of policies based on traffic type, protection against HTTP-targeted attacks, and guarding against "botnet" that could become sources for DDoS attacks.

Tilera's highly integrated 64-bit TILE-Gx processor family includes 9 to 72 processing cores, high-performance PCI Express, multiple integrated 10GbE interfaces, high speed encryption engines, and several on-chip subsystems that saves design time and board space, while providing the best overall bill of materials (BoM) cost and maintaining full software compatibility.

"Together with Tilera, we are delivering one of the industry's highest-performance and most extensive DDoS protection systems," said Philip Kim, president and CEO, AhnLab. "The immense computing power, scalability and standard programming environment provided by the TILE-Gx family enables AhnLab to add our differentiated features with increased time to market advantages. This makes the TILE-Gx processor family the obvious choice to power AhnLab DPS appliances."

"As a technology innovator and market leader, AhnLab's selection of TILE-Gx processors is a testimony to the full value provided by our solution," said Devesh Garg, president and CEO, Tilera. "The combination of our scalable iMesh™ interconnect technology, integrated low latency programmable packet processor, and up to 72 high-performance cache-coherent cores makes us the best solution to address the requirements of next-generation security appliances."

AhnLab will demonstrate the high-performance and extensive DDoS mitigation capabilities of the DPS 10000 appliance at the RSA Conference 2013, February 25 - March 1, 2013. The demonstration will be located in the AhnLab booth #951.
