Proprietary software responds to distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks without human intervention.
Nimitz is *mostly a bandwidth independent product. Its proprietary software specifically targets DDoS attacks, but its ability to filter out those attacks is largely predicated on the physical hardware that it is running on e.g. CPU.
Proprietary software utilizes a novel form of signature detection that allows for enhanced identification.
Current lab tests have shown an operational latency of less than 200 microseconds (<0.0002 seconds) or 0.2 milliseconds, under load.
Nimitz security appliances come with a guaranteed performance capacity, quantifed in packets per second.
However, in emergency situations they are capable of exceeding guaranteed thresholds by up to 75%, for short bursts of time.
Nimitz operates at layers 3/4 of the OSI model to eliminate attacks at layers 3/4/7.
Nimitz does not perform any type of deep packet inspection or violate the integrity/ security of the data passing through it.
Commodity hardware allows for easy deployment and network integration. While also allowing for reduced costs of manufacturing and production.
All units are manufactured by Lanner Inc . A world leader in the fields of advanced network appliance design, engineering and manufacturing.
Assembled in Canada and United States.
All units can be customized with an array of additional Network interface cards varying from RJ-45 to SFP+. To allow for easier network integration and future provisioning.
Nimitz is a distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation project that is currently in its 5th year of development and making rapid progress from theoretical research to real world testing and product distribution.
We originated out of Grande Prairie, Alberta in early 2014. A location which still serves as our primary headquarters and base of operation. But since then we have also taken on a global presence. Both in terms of clientele as well as contributors. And, currently consist of a small group of international specialists spanning both Canada and Europe. Most of whom have 20+ years of applied/ technical experience in the fields of information research/ technology, cyber-security and computer networking.
Primary Goal: to develop a protection mechanism that could compete against the continuously evolving DDoS landscape, across all areas. Including performance metrics, such as number of packets per second (pps) mitigated, latency, ease of deployment, upgradeablity and affordability. Through the development of proprietary software that allows for advanced signature detection and high velocity packet processing. We have substantially increased the efficiency of filtering out attacks without compromising a networks normal data/ traffic or integrity. Thus allowing for enhanced levels of pps level mitigation, relative to given hardware specifications.
Secondary Goal: increase the accessiblity to industrial level DDoS mitigation technology for small to enterprise businesses, networks and ISP’s for whom traditional solutions from industry leading experts may not have been financialy feasible, effective or scalable. This we achieved through the coupling of our advanced software with standard industry hardware. Allowing Nimitz to be deployed in networks of anysize through nothing more than simple hardware modifications. Delivering revolutionary protection at a reduced cost.
Tertiary Goal: in so doing we have developed a product that is not only more efficient and cost effective than solutions employed by industry leaders. But also liberating in the sense that we have created a security appliance that is essentialy turn-key, easy to deploy and does not rely on 3rdparties managing your data and routingtraffic throughoff site proxys that degrade your network (increase latency) and increase your risk to security vulnerabilities. Thus, giving you back control over your traffic and data.
