The FastMatch Project directly addresses several of the major security implementation issues facing large enterprises and service providers. Specifically it seeks to create a layered and agent-oriented architecture to enable delivery of multiple pattern-based and behaviour-based scanning and filtering functions at much higher speeds than realised by the state-of-the art.

The major technical objectives are to provide a framework for the concurrent operation of reactive and proactive security algorithms, to deliver algorithmic enhancements for pattern recognition and behaviour-based detection schemes, as well as enhanced and highly correlated rule sets for more efficient alarm management and root-cause analysis. It is important to point out that the tools developed by FastMatch will be robust in the sense that they will seek to constantly adapt and react to changing security threats in the longer term.
