Qosmos ixEngine for Malware Protection and Data Loss Prevention
Organizations of all types are facing new cyber threats, increasing the risk of infection by malware and exfiltration of sensitive information. Security vendors have responded with new solutions for malware protection, data loss prevention (DLP) and threat analysis. To be effective, these products need to dig deep into the payload of network traffic and extract detailed information such as file content (typically decrypted payload).
This screencast video provides a quick overview on how Qosmos ixEngine can be used to extract content and metadata inside security solutions for Malware Protection and Data Loss Prevention.
Reality-check: boosting VNFs with Vector Packet Processing (VPP)
Cisco’s now open-source virtual switch module has a reputation for high performance, proven technology, flexibility, and a rich feature set. Practically, how can VPP be used to boost VNF performance?

Networking in Virtualized Environments
Nicolas Bouthors, CTO, Qosmos, shares his vision of networking in virtualized environments. He explains how a new component-based architecture is made possible by combining Network Function Virtualization (NFV) with open software such as OpenStack and OpenDaylight. He goes on to explain the key role of real-time traffic visibility up to layer 7 to understand interaction between networked software components: passive view of traffic behavior, ensuring active security between VMs, and a proactive approach with service chaining.
Layer 7 Visibility – Opening Up New Opportunities For vCPE Services
While many articles and presentations discuss how vCPE technologies can deliver existing services in simpler and cheaper ways, this presentation focuses on new service opportunities enabled by Layer 7 visibility.
Filmed at NFV World Congress 2016, Erik Larsson, VP Marketing at Qosmos, explains why Layer 7 visibility is an essential ingredient of any vCPE strategy for both equipment vendors and operators. He shows the enterprise and operator business drivers for vCPE services and details the importance of L7 visibility to the success of these services, covering areas such as service optimization, introduction of VAS and network security. He explains how operators can use L7 visibility to offer network management functions as value-added services through a web interface, shows the best configuration for service chaining and presents different deployment scenarios, including a reference example.
