VHB security system halts denial-of-service attacks

Author: JT Smith

From eeTimes.com: "A unique appliance that can stop denial-of-service attacks in enterprises or
Internet points of presence took its first bow at the recent ComNet show.

VHB Technologies, an angel-funded startup in Richardson, Texas, had been searching since its launch
last fall for a security-oriented network processor to perform deep packet classification of the type
needed to prevent denial-of-service, but ended up designing its own: the Vipre parallel-processing
ASIC."
