» Global Velocity Deep Packet Inspection
DPI is essential for controlling network traffic.
Many traditional firewalls do not inspect deeper than the network and transport layers. However, the GV-2010 performs Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), which allows it to inspect a greater portion of network data than traditional firewalls.
Traditional firewalls filter traffic based on simple rules, such as packets originating from or sent to certain network addresses and ports, but they are not capable of inspecting packet payloads, where more relevant data is contained.
The payload of a typical TCP/IP packet, which makes up 85 percent of all Internet traffic, represents over 87 percent of the packet's total size. The payload escalates to 97 percent of the total on the largest packets, as shown in the following figure:
