The multi-threaded architecture of Sensory Networks HyperScan software enables multiple instances of the pattern-matching executable, perhaps utilizing different signature sets, to run simultaneously. It should be used on a multi-core hardware platform in order to maximize performance. This solution study explains the benchmark tests and describes how Sensory Networks HyperScan software running on a platform with the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series can deliver the necessary performance to maintain line rates when running security applications.
