Now-a-days efficient usage of high-tech security tools and appliances is considered as an important criterion for security improvement of computer networks. Based on this assumption, Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS) have key role for applying the defense in depth strategy. In this situation, by increasing network bandwidth in addition to increasing number of threats, Network-based IDPSes have been faced with performance challenge for processing of huge traffic in the networks. A general solution for this bottleneck is exploitation of efficient hardware architectures for performance improvement of IDPS.
