Cavium powers next generation advanced security appliances

Cavium, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM) said its latest processing technologies are enabling a new wave of advanced security appliances, based upon the latest generation of scalable security products including OCTEON® III multicore processors and NITROX® security processors.

The new solutions address a wide range of price and performance points to allow secure scaling across the whole spectrum of deployment scenarios utilizing a common architectural and software framework within product lines.

With the rapid growth of multi-tenant data centers and expansion of enterprise boundaries over the cloud, vulnerability of the network infrastructure has increased. This trend mandates implementation of security at multiple layers of the network.

The OCTEON III product line provides a multicore processing platform spanning anywhere from 1 to 48 cores on a single SoC with advanced on-chip acceleration for high-throughput networking, encryption, and deep packet inspection supporting throughputs as high as 100Gbps. The OCTEON III generation provides a major increase in compute and adds the latest encryption algorithm support.

Cavium provides integrated semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing in enterprise, data center, cloud and wired and wireless service provider applications. Cavium´s principal office is in San Jose, CA with design team locations in California, Massachusetts, India and China.
