[Tech Brief] Native Suricata Integration with Accolade, FPGA-Based Hardware

The latest tech brief from Accolade Technology shows how seamlessly Suricata, the open-source network threat detection engine, integrates with Accolade CPU software. The software can be configured for real time intrusion detection (IDS), inline intrusion prevention (IPS), network security monitoring (NSM) and offline pcap processing. Suricata inspects network traffic using a powerful and extensive rules and signature language, and has powerful scripting support for detection of complex threats. With standard input and output formats like YAML and JSON, integration with external analytics tools such as Splunk, Logstash/Elasticsearch and Kibana is effortless.

SUMMARY:

Seamless and native integration of the Suricata, open-source network threat detection engine with Accolade CPU offload hardware.

BENEFITS:

  • Increased scalability, performance and throughput
  • Native integration with zero software modification
  • Cost savings
