Last week we released a case study describing a product called ThreatEye that was released by one our newest customers/partners, Counterflow. ThreatEye is a network detection platform that enhances Suricata via machine-learning (ML) and hardware-based host CPU offload. Accolade is very proud to be the exclusive provider of host CPU offload adapters or SmartNICs for this product and has worked collaboratively with Counterflow on this project for a significant period of time.
ANIC adapters are used in TheatEye for two main purposes: Flow Tracking and Packet Recording. On the flow tracking side, the ThreatEye platform takes advantage of an ANIC adapter’s ability to classify or track up to 32 million unique IP flows (based on 3 or 5-tuple) in hardware. With information about each flow in place, the ANIC adapter is then in position to take specific actions on an individual flow such as forward, drop or re-direct the flow. The specific action to be taken is of course driven by Counterflow’s innovative machine-learning capability for security and forensics.
