HyperScan* optimizes deep packet inspection (DPI) performance on Intel® architecture, scaling from Intel® Xeon® processor to Intel® Core™ processor to Intel® Atom™ processor
Combating the growing amount of malware is becoming an ever increasing resource-intensive task requiring the deployment of even more advanced scanning capabilities. Content scanning technologies are supported on a wide variety of applications and equipment types, including large cloud-based server blades, security appliances, switches, and routers. As an alternative to using custom ASICS and equivalent hardware to perform the task of pattern matching, equipment designers can now address the need with a simplified software-based approach. HyperScan is a software pattern matching library that fully scales Intel® architecture to deliver the highest levels of pattern matching performance for a best in class DPI (pattern matching) solution.
