Genie Networks Joins F5 Technology Alliance Program to Deliver Efficient Network Management Solutions
Genie Networks, the leading provider of IP-flow network traffic analysis and DDoS protection, today announced that it has joined F5 Networks’ Technology Alliance Program (TAP). Through the interoperability of GenieATM and F5’s BIG-IP® products, mutual customers enjoy a more efficient and robust network management solution that delivers improved user experience and security.
“Genie Networks has always been dedicated to enhancing CSPs and enterprises’ network security infrastructure and traffic visibility,” said Denis Miu, CEO of Genie Networks. “DDoS attacks are evolving and becoming more difficult to detect—the last thing CSPs want is to be completely naive of their network situation. GenieATM is designed to help administrators get a grasp of their current network status by 24/7 monitoring traffic flows, organizing them into detail reports and signaling an alarm when suspicious activities within the network are detected. Aligning our partnership and integration efforts with F5 solutions will help us deliver an optimized user experience while strengthening our value proposition for joint customers.”
The combination of GenieATM and BIG-IP products reduces risk for customers by increasing the accuracy and efficiency of the DDoS mitigation process. When detecting the onset of an attack, GenieATM will redirect suspicious traffic to a BIG-IP scrubbing device, which evaluates the traffic, eliminates or mitigates the attack, and releases the “cleaned” traffic. The integration of GenieATM and BIG-IP functionality through the TAP partnership will help customers optimize their networks in areas such as security, performance and management.
“F5’s Technology Alliance Program focuses on interoperability, reliability, and optimized performance to give customers added confidence in deploying joint solutions, with Genie providing compelling capabilities,” said Jon Kuhn, Sr. Director of Product Management at F5. “F5 BIG-IP’s high performance mitigation capability protects against DDoS attacks across all layers (L3/4, L7 including HTTP, SSL, and DNS etc.), and works in concert with GenieATM’s unique flow/attack intelligence gathering and attack detection functions. An integrated solution offers service provider customers robust and scalable DDoS protection.”
