Sensory Networks' HyperScan is a highly portable, easy-to-integrate software engine that supports regular expressions and a wide variety of other pattern sets required for most data networking and security applications. The software engine, given its highly flexible architecture and innovative algorithms, is designed to enable easy performance tuning for even the most unique patterns. In addition, an intelligent compilation stage partitions, optimizes and transforms the existing signature database to minimize memory usage and optimize performance with complete signature support. Depending on the type of application and signature workload, HyperScan can deliver anywhere from 1Gbps - 10Gbps, per CPU core, of deep content scanning performance, providing a solid foundation for high-performance cloud computing networks.
