Crossbeam announced that it has expanded its family of X-Series network security platforms with the X50, a new platform that enables larger IT organizations with multiple X-Series deployments to easily expand their security infrastructure across the business, while maintaining centralized control over security policy and management.
The X50 platform benefits from Crossbeam’s sixth-generation network processing blades and newly enhanced operating system. The new platform takes advantage of the scalability and architecture provided by the X-Series to deliver a consolidated security infrastructure that is capable of delivering 160 Gbps of full duplex network connectivity and 20 Gbps of real-world IMIX performance.
The X-Series platforms deploy security applications from top vendors on an open architecture that delivers the scalability, flexibility and built-in redundancy required to intelligently and reliably manage traffic as security and network demands change. With the introduction of the X50, Crossbeam meets the full range of environments demanding high-performance security – from mid-sized enterprises looking to protect their virtualized infrastructure to service providers securing communications for millions of subscribers.
The X50 offers customers:
- A flexible four-slot platform pre-configured for one security application, adaptable to run two applications with a total real-world IMIX performance of 20 Gbps.
- The ability to deploy the best security applications from the leading security providers, including Actiance, Check Point, Imperva, McAfee, Sophos and Sourcefire.
- Centralized management with multiple X-Series platforms across the enterprise through the Crossbeam Management System (XMS).
