Lionic Corporation, a leading supplier of security software and signature database services for UTM (United Threat Management), today announced the availability of their Talos III Security SDK for Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 Multi-Core ARM® Cortex®-A Communications Processor Family. Talos III is a comprehensive security software suite that provides a complete set of security modules including real-time antivirus scanning, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), protection from malicious websites, and application-dependent QoS. By leveraging Comcerto 2000's embedded Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology, Enterprise-class UTM performance becomes an affordable reality for SMB, SoHo and Residential security gateways.
Lionic's innovative approach to security allows for very high DPI performance while minimizing the memory footprint required to address tens of millions of viruses and malware. The smaller footprint also allows for many years of growth where the number of new viruses and malware are increasing exponentially. Lionic's optimized Talos III SDK combined with Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 reference design platform enables OEMs to quickly launch security appliances and DPI-enabled routers thus reducing their overall time-to-market and R&D investment. Furthermore, by combining Talos III with Lionic's real-time-updating signature database services, a total end-to-end security solution can be realized.
"As cyber threats are on the rise, security appliances have become increasingly important but have unfortunately remained unaffordable for small businesses and for homes," said Marco E. Bello, executive director of marketing and product management for the communications processors business unit at Mindspeed. "By combining Lionic's Talos III SDK with our Comcerto 2000 product, for the first time enterprise-class deep packet inspection technology becomes affordable in the home. While this technology has mostly been used for security to date, its entry in the residential space will, no doubt, lead to a plethora of new applications, such as application-based QoS or advanced parental control."
"We are happy to work with Mindspeed to create a total security solution for small businesses and homes," said Eric Lu, CEO at Lionic. "Mindspeed's Comcerto 2000 family of communications products is a powerful and exciting platform that could address multiple market segments."

The key features of Talos III are stream-based antivirus, intrusion prevention system(IPS), application control and management, protection from malicious websites, URL filtering and advertisement classification module. Talos III is fully compatible with and portable on Linux or the OpenWRT distribution.
When combining Talos III with an embedded hardware DPI off-load engine such as the one found in Mindspeed's Comcerto C2000 processor, enterprise-class security performance could be attained while keeping the main CPU available for running other applications.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
