Huawei Symantec Unveils Service-Provider-Class Firewall, Supporting an Industry-Leading 4 Million New Connections per Second

Allows Enterprises and Service Providers to Keep Pace With the Growth of DDOS and Peer-to-Peer Application Traffic

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - Interop -- Huawei Symantec, a leading provider of network security and storage solutions, today introduced the Huawei Symantec Secospace™ USG9300, the new leader in firewall and VPN gateway performance with support for 4 million new connections per second, 64 million concurrent connections, and 160Gbps of firewall throughput. The USG9300 is designed to provide large enterprises and service providers with a centrally managed solution for keeping pace with the accelerating growth of DDOS, and peer-to-peer applications such as BitTorrent, which are used for distributing movies and music, as well as Bots, Spyware, Adware, Worms, and other types of malware. Interop attendees will see the USG9300 in action at Booth #657.

"Netflix, iTunes, and P2P applications may create hundreds of connections with a single device, plus additional TCP connections which malware tries to initiate. That's why large data center managers are asking for a quantum improvement over the current generation of firewalls," said Jane Li, general manager of North America, Huawei Symantec. "The USG9300 answers the call with approximately 4x the speed and capacity of most service-provider-class firewalls available today."
