by | Jun 21, 2016

The X-Series continues to provide rich network security at 2X the performance

Hillstone Networks, a leading provider of network firewall solutions, today announced an upgrade of its X-Series data center firewall solution to complement a broad portfolio of security solutions that span physical, virtual, and cloud. The upgrade to the solution delivers 2X performance in the same small form factor, with improved link-load balance capabilities; making it an ideal solution for high-speed service providers, large enterprises and carrier networks, as well as government and financial institutions.

Today’s data centers face a massive growth in network traffic as well as an increase in the number of concurrent users accessing services and applications over the network. This growth in network traffic puts a strain on the performance and protection of the network. The latest upgrade of the X-Series offers a secure firewall solution that can scale through new expansion modules, delivering a high-performance and secure network to support today’s business requirements. Customers can protect their initial investment and non-disruptively scale through easy module expansions.

Highlights of the solution offering include:

  • High performance at 680Gbps, based on a fully distributed architecture
  • 2X improvement in the number of concurrent sessions (240M) and new sessions/sec (4.8M)
  • Comprehensive attack protection
  • Carrier-grade high reliability and availability
  • Advanced virtual system (vSYS) technology for multi-tenant solutions
  • Lower energy consumption for reduced operational costs

“The Hillstone X-Series is a breakthrough technology for today’s data centers that require a robust network security solution with large network bandwidth that meets their budget requirements. With the upgrade, our customers can now have peace of mind that their business networks are secure and meet their business needs,” said Lingling Zhang, VP of Products at Hillstone.

The X-Series is currently deployed across many industries, globally, as well as a wide range of deployment scenarios.
