Revolutionizing Network Performance with New Models in the Hillstone A-Series Family


Network security has always been a top priority for enterprise management. Companies need to ensure their IT network security while constantly updating their network equipment to cope with increasingly complex and evolving network threats. Hillstone Networks has always been committed to providing advanced network security solutions, and this time we introduce you to the A-series new hardware A5x55-IN. Packed with performance, the new models are designed to meet the demands of mid-to-large-scale businesses, with firewall throughputs ranging from 25 to 80 Gbps depending on the model and expansion module option. The new models come with many additional benefits, highlighted below.

SSL hardware acceleration

One of the key features of the A-Series is its SSL hardware acceleration, used to accelerate SSL encryption and decryption, which can significantly enhance SSL/TLS performance. With SSL hardware acceleration, the A-Series is able to handle a much larger number of SSL/TLS connections while maintaining high throughput, so that we can expect faster and more reliable network performance with effective encryption and decryption.

Comprehensive threat protection platform

Network security continues to grow in complexity, causing risk, stress and headache to SecOps teams. The A-Series is equipped to efficiently adapt to threats from multiple vectors and layers, delivering superior protection against both known and unknown threats. This is achieved through a range of security tools, including Intrusion Prevention, IP Reputation, URL Filtering, Anti-Spam, Anti-Virus, Cloud Sandbox, and Botnet C2. With these advanced features, the A-Series offers effective security against modernized threats, safeguarding networks against increasingly complex and sophisticated attacks.

High-density interface

The A-Series new hardware models are equipped with high-density interfaces to support high-speed connectivity and provide flexible deployment options for different network environments. With two QSFP+ interfaces, sixteen SFP+ interfaces, and eight GE interfaces (including four bypass pairs), the new models offer many configuration options to suit various network requirements, and are capable of supporting high-speed connections for mid-sized organizations, large enterprises, and service providers.

Advanced hardware design

In addition to its high-density interfaces and SSL hardware acceleration, the new models boast an advanced hardware design for reliable and efficient performance. They feature front and rear-end ventilation to prevent overheating and ensure stable operation. The system is also equipped with expandable storage capabilities, allowing users to add extra hard drives with 480GB, 960GB, or 1.92TB SSD options as needed. With its robust hardware design, the A-Series is built to handle demanding workloads and provide reliable performance for a variety of network environments.

With the addition of the A-5155IN, A-5255IN, and A-5555IN models, the A-Series lineup now offers a diverse range of high-performance hardware options for network security. Whether you’re a small business, a mid-sized enterprise, or a large corporation, the A-Series has the hardware to meet your needs.
