Enterasys Blades Add Security, Policy Routing to Switches
Enterasys Networks this week unveiled new blades for its Matrix N-Series flow switches that feature improved routing and security capabilities.
The four new Diamond Distributed Forwarding Engines (DFEs), essentially new line cards, deliver high-density Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet aggregation. The blades' architecture guarantees that only authorized users access information resources and prevents intruders from taking advantage of vulnerabilities to tap into business assets. Additional security capabilities include the ability to safeguard the network from worms and other potentially harmful code and preventing the spread of malware by quarantining individual communications instead of simply isolating a virtual LAN port.
