Academia Sinica Chooses GenieATM 6000 to Perform Network Traffic Optimization and Anomaly Detection

GenieNRM today announced that Academia Sinica, the most preeminent research institution in Taiwan, has selected more GenieATM 6000 systems to ensure its network-wide traffic optimization and anomaly detection. In 2007, Academia Sinica kicked off a project to adopt a network traffic analysis and anomaly detection solution for its extended network scale. After months of solution survey and product trial, the Academia Sinica Computer Center adopted GenieNRM’s GenieATM solution for its internal and international networks.

In 2011, due to the fast international traffic growing, the Academia Sinica Computer Center decides to further upgrade its international bandwidth as well as the network traffic analysis and anomaly detection solution. In addition to the satisfying functions and applications GenieATM has delivered in the past few years, GenieATM still stands out above the rest solutions in the new round of solution survey and tryout. Therefore, the Academia Sinica Computer Center selected GenieATM again for the larger scale network traffic analysis and anomaly detection project.

Leveraging the GenieATM solution for years, the unique features and values perceived by the Academia Sinica Computer Center include GenieATM’s effective anomaly detection and alerting mechanisms as well as its insightful BGP routing analysis capabilities. The Computer Center network manager can identify the attacking sources and victims timely by GenieATM’s incident tickets showed via the Web console or via the notification mail. With the detailed traffic information of the detected incidents, the network manager can take further measures precisely to mitigate the anomaly threats. GenieATM offers traffic analysis toward each monitored router interface together with BGP ASN aware intelligence so that the network manager can better tune their BGP routing policies and manage their peering relationships to achieve network traffic optimization.

The repetitive choices of GenieATM from a prestigious research institution like Academia Sinica have validated the fact that GenieATM is the most effective, comprehensive and scalable network traffic analysis and anomaly detection solutions in the industry.
