Inside Secure and 6WIND partner to bring high-performance and scalability to the Cloud

Joint IPsec solution to be demonstrated at SDN & OpenFlow World Congress 2016


Aix-en-Provence, France, October 6, 2016, – Inside Secure, at the heart of security solutions for mobile and connected devices, and 6WIND, a leader in high-performance networking software, today announced their joint IPsec solution that combines the leading data plane stack of 6WIND with the best-in-class Inside Secure control plane will be demonstrated at the SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in The Hague, starting October 11, 2016. With this solution, customers receive an extremely high throughput solution and a highly stable control plane to easily move their networks to the Cloud while getting industry-leading performance that runs on standard hardware and is supported with professional tools and maintenance.


“The number of connections in IPsec is exploding,” said Andrew McLennan, executive vice president of the Mobile Security Division of Inside Secure. “Operators need to move to the cloud to control their costs while maintaining a high scalability and availability of their network. The combined 6WIND and Inside Secure solution delivers unmatched performance for cloud deployments allowing operators to easily migrate away from their legacy gateway that uses custom hardware. It also provides critical stability while supporting connections up to the one-million range.”


“For over a decade, OEMs have built the world’s leading IPsec VPN Gateways on 6WIND software for time-to-market and performance advantages,” said Eric Carmès, CEO and Founder of 6WIND. “Our partnership with Inside Secure further increases our customer value by combining the industry’s leading data plane and control plane security software for COTS server solutions that outpace purpose-built hardware.”


During SDN & OpenFlow World Congress (The Hague, 11-14th of October), Inside Secure and 6WIND will demonstrate in 6WIND’s booth #111 how to achieve 40Gb/s IPsec zero-loss throughput on 10,000 tunnels with only 8 CPU cores, and an establishment rate of 2000 IPsec tunnels per secondwith only 2 CPU cores.
