5G Security: Offload Hyperscale DDoS Attacks to SmartNICs

Thank you for your submission.  Check your inbox in the next hour for an email from F5 which will include the download link.

As service providers shift to the modern cloud and network function virtualization (NFV) architectures to roll out 5G and edge computing infrastructures, new generations of hyperscale distributed denial-of-service (DDoS), threats are emerging. DDoS attacks are increasing in size, complexity, and severity as malicious actors look to further exploit new cloud-based technological shifts. To protect themselves, service providers need virtual security solutions that offer flexible, robust defenses.

Leveraging Intel FPGA PAC N3000 F5's BIG-IP VE for SmartNICs solution is capable of withstanding DDoS attacks up to 300 times greater in magnitude than a comparable software-only solution—ensuring cloud networks are adequately protected against evolving DDoS threats.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How DDoS attacks might evolve in a 5G world
  • What SmartNICs are and how they can be utilized across the network
  • How F5's BIG-IP VE for SmartNICs solution can better protect your 5G network against the next generation of DDoS attacks
