MetaProtect Firewall «NEW»

MetaProtect™ Firewall is a powerful, 48 x 10GbE port network appliance that performs sophisticated packet filtering in parallel between port-pairs. Filtering is implemented via per-port Access Control Lists (ACL). MetaProtect Firewall provides complete flexibility in configuration, allowing authenticated administrators to create mappings between physical port-pairs and apply ACLs to either or both endpoints. MetaProtect is architected for ultra-low-latency with packets passing an ACL being forwarded in 112 nanoseconds or less; significantly faster than most traditional firewalls.

Features and Benefits:

  • High port density: 48 x 10GbE SFP+ ports in 1 RU with 32 x 10GbE Firewall filters and accelerated traffic processing capacity
  • Parallel filtering: Cut-through filtering via 32 ACLs with up to 510 rules per ACL. Per-port filtering possible by assigning an ACL to a port.
  • Flexible ACLs: ACLs support permit/deny rules based upon source/destination IP address/Port number. IP addresses may be wild-carded using CIDR style notation.
  • Ultra-low latency filtering: Average filter latency of 112 ns for the minimum latency configuration (1 rule) to 187 ns for the maximum configuration (510 rules) – some of the fastest in the industry
  • Extensive packet statistics: Advanced monitoring and capture of comprehensive packet statistics across all ports. Support for detailed switch statistics via SNMP, CLI or InfluxDB.
  • Comprehensive logging:
    • Logged statistics of permitted and denied packets
    • Individually logged events when packet fails an ACL, including packet information, date, time, ACL ID and reason
    • Logged administrative ACL rule changes
    • Local and remote logging via syslog
