Corrent Security Appliances Sustain Maximum ThroughputEven Under Attack
In response to this threat, security appliance vendors utilize powerful processors that run sophisticated software. Many of these firewalls and VPN servers are strong enough to stave off some of the most vigorous attacks. But not all. That's because the typical architecture of a firewall/VPN server is synchronousperforming one function at a time. According to Corrent, synchronous architecture will fail when confronted with a flooding DDoS attack due to the fact that each connection must be processed in order.
Corrent came up with a distributed architecture that enables asynchronous processing at the firewall. Suspicious traffic is quickly diverted while the good communication flows freely. With multiple processors working on different tasks simultaneously, even the most malicious DDoS attacks cannot choke the firewall.
