Emulex Joins Network Intelligence Alliance

Stocks in this article: ELX

COSTA MESA, Calif., Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Emulex Corporation (NYSE: ELX) today announced that it has become a member of the Network Intelligence Alliance (NI Alliance), a new industry organization created for collaboration among the Network Economy's technology providers. The NI Alliance serves as a forum for collaboration among technology providers whose solutions secure data in transit, ensure efficient data delivery, monetize data transactions or track real-time information.  Participation in the NI Alliance will help Emulex continue to build, market and broaden its innovative High Performance Networking (HPN) solutions including the new Emulex OneConnect® Network Xceleration (NX) OCe12000-D family of 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) network adapters and FastStackā„¢ Sniffer10G software.

The Emulex OneConnect NX family provides full 10G line rate with lossless packet capture and injection, regardless of packet size.  This capability is critical in cyber and network security applications, such as deep packet inspection (DPI), as any dropped packets can potentially compromise the effectiveness of an organization's network security efforts. The Emulex NX solution with FastStack Sniffer10G integrates into standard x86-based server platforms to provide easy to deploy and cost-effective deep packet probes for solution vendors who provide the next generation of network monitoring and lawful intercept solutions for carriers and service providers requiring high performance, yet cost-effective DPI solutions.

"Joining the NI Alliance gives us the opportunity to collaborate with other companies in addressing their network performance needs where extreme performance is required, such as cyber and network security or High Frequency Trading," said Shaun Walsh, senior vice president of marketing and business development, Emulex. "Today's electronically-connected world leaves businesses open to network attacks but being able to quickly capture and analyze packets without disrupting other server operations is possible with an HPN. The NI Alliance will enable us to expand our reach with HPN solutions that deliver extreme performance and reduce the risk for security attacks."

In a world that now depends and runs on networks - accurate visibility and precise tracking of data crossing networks have become crucial to the availability, performance and security of applications and services. The growing complexity of IP transactions, the explosion of mobile applications, and the mainstream adoption of cloud computing surpass the capabilities of conventional tools to improve how networks operate, expand services, and cope with cyber security. Network Intelligence technology is an emerging category of technology to reveal the critical details of the data locked inside network traffic and transactions.
