Empower Security with Mellanox Next Generation Solutions

It’s almost impossible to eliminate all vulnerabilities from the system. It’s even harder to guarantee that a cyber criminal won’t exploit a vulnerability, attack your servers, and persist, lurking in your data center. The first line of defense is to defend against attacks. The second line of defense is to detect and quarantine any persisting threats. The third line of defense is protecting the sensitive assets. The Mellanox Connect6®-Dx and BlueField®-2 include secure boot and secure firmware update in to prevent an attacker from infiltrating and hiding within the adapter.

They filter packets in support of next generation firewalls and intrusion detection/prevention systems. In addition, they accelerate and offload cryptographic operations to secure your data while freeing the host CPU to run critical applications, all while keeping the cryptographic keys secure from a potentially-exploited host. Mellanox products are aimed at accelerating security in your datacenter, make sure that you have all bases covered and accelerated with our secured solutions.

Mellanox Open Ethernet NIC's Closing Backdoor Risks

Mellanox fully embraces open development for its software for both its NICs and Switches. The ConnectX-6 Dx Ethernet network adapter offers real-time encryption of information, so customer data can be protected both at rest in storage and in motion at speeds up to 200 Gb/s. But we go beyond this to ensure the privacy of our customer's vital data.

Mellanox develops software upstream in the open Linux community and the code becomes part of downstream open source distributions. In fact recently we were recently the #3 contributor to the Linux Kernel - demonstrating our commitment to open source development. Sunlight is a powerful disinfectant and with thousands of eyes looking at every line of code, bugs are eliminated and security is enhanced. So not only are our solutions more robust, they are also highly secure.

So rest easy - when we close the front door to lock down application security, you can rest assured there is no backdoor from a bug or in some hidden piece of code.

ConnectX®-6 Dx Dual 100GbE / Single 200GbE SmartNIC

As the world’s most advanced cloud SmartNIC, ConnectX-6 Dx provides up to two ports of 25, 50 or 100Gb/s, or a single port of 200Gb/s Ethernet connectivity, powered by 50Gb/s PAM4 SerDes technology and PCIe 4.0 host connectivity. ConnectX-6 Dx continues along Mellanox’s innovation path in scalable cloud fabrics, delivering unparalleled performance and efficiency at every scale. ConnectX-6 Dx’s innovative hardware offload engines, including IPsec and TLS inline data-in-motion encryption, are ideal for enabling secure network connectivity in modern data-center environments.

The extensive Mellanox ConnectX-6 Dx portfolio offers cards in several form factors, feeds and speeds, including low-profile PCIe, OCP 2.0 and OCP 3.0-compliant cards with advanced options for Mellanox Multi-Host® and Mellanox Socket Direct® configurations, enabling customers to choose the best fit for their needs.

BlueField®-2 DPU-based Programmable SmartNIC

The Mellanox BlueField-2 I/O Processing Unit (IPU) is the IC at the heart of software programmable SmartNICs. The 200Gb/s BlueField-2 IC integrates a 64-bit Arm® multicore processor array, Mellanox ConnectX-6 Dx advanced networking, and additional security offloads into one chip, making it the best choice to accelerate a multitude of security, networking and storage applications. High-performance and software-programmable networking capabilities enable the IC to customize and optimize both control plane and data path operations.

The BlueField-2 SmartNIC delivers isolation, hardware root-of-trust, and IPsec/TLS cryptography accelerations, thus enabling data center security at the endpoint with best-in-class performance, turning zero-trust to hero-trust.

BlueField-2 SmartNICs in bare metal deployments enable cloud providers to provision servers while retaining the ability to control them and deploy policy rules in an isolated and secured manner, totally transparently to the tenant. Moreover, Mellanox NVMe SNAP, which logically presents networked storage as a local NVMe drive on the PCIe bus, is bringing virtualized storage to bare metal clouds, making composable storage simple while delivering CAPEX and OPEX savings.
