Big Switch Networks Announces Availability of First Open Software-Defined Networking Product Suite

Big Switch Networks today announced the general availability of the first Open Software-Defined Networking (SDN) product suite, and the industry’s most open architecture delivering: the largest ecosystem of partners, the broadest range of network applications, and the widest range of deployment options.

ThreatSTOP is proud to partner with Big Switch Networks and to be the only supplier of real time threat data among their Technology Alliance Partners.

"Threatstop is excited to be using Big Switch Networks Open SDN platform. We are connecting our Real time IP Reputation Service through open APIs in Big Virtual Switch to offer a highly scalable, SDN security solution," states Tom Byrnes, ThreatSTOP Founder & CEO.

The Big Switch Networks product suite is the only generally available SDN offering that unifies applications and infrastructure across vendors including support for both physical and virtual switches. ThreatSTOP is currently in the process of adding Big Switch controllers to our growing list of supported network elements. If interested, please contact us for early access code to evaluate.

ThreatSTOP's ability to manage policies and blocklists for multiple devices through a single web UI will mean that access control for multiple controllers can be managed in a simple and consistent manner. In addition ThreatSTOP's support of non-openflow capable devices means that the same interface can be used to manage both new SDN elements and legacy equipment to ease migration to a full SDN solution.
