Product Details

Hillstones software-based Elastic Firewall Architecture (EFA) technology distributes firewall processing across multiple, distributed virtual machines, scaling and pooling security resources in a highly flexible, elastic manner.

EFA deploys virtual security I/O modules (vIOMs) close to protected VMs. vIOMs provide rack-level security for all north-south and east-west virtual machine traffic, ensuring minimal performance impact and robust security protection. Unique, patented flow migration technology re-establishes sessions and maintains policies as virtual machines migrate across the data center, ensuring non-stop performance and business continuity and providing a unified view of data center data planes. Virtual Security Service Modules (vSSMs) offer firewall services as resources in a pool. vIOMs and vSSMs can be started elastically to maintain performance as network traffic grows, ensuring stable firewall performance. All virtual modules are managed as a single virtual appliance.

Virtual Security Control Modules (vSCM) integrate tightly with Citrix CloudPlatform providing IaaS providers with a powerful multitenant, cloud based, virtual security solution. IaaS clients can configure and control their own cloud security via Hillstone’s multitenant management platform.  All virtual modules are managed as a single virtual appliance.

  • Via Citrix CloudPlatform, Hillstone virtual firewall resources can be managed and allocated on demand for each data center tenant
  • Each tenant gets their own independent management interfaces and resources, and scale dynamically
  • Provides peace of mind to enterpise for your security concerns with Cloud and scales your security as you grow

Features

Fully distributed EFA hardware architectures scales processing and performance linearly

  • Scales throughput to 360Gps, 120 million concurrent connections and 2.4 million new sessions (HTTP) per second via security service module (SSM) expansion boards
  • Only 5U high with a maximum power requirement of 1300W thanks to advanced green, energy-saving technologies. One fourth to one third the power requirements of similar products.

Virtual firewall technology creates independent tenant security planes and allocates security resources on demand for each data center tenant

  • Support up to 1000 virtual firewalls per chassis
  • Each virtual firewall gets its own system resources, allowing tenant CPUs, sessions, policies, ports, etc. to be scaled dynamically
  • Each virtual firewall has its own separate management interface, to deploy security policies flexibly based on each user’s security requirements.

Currently available for beta testing.
