Endace enhances analytics with 10GbE deep storage solution

09 May 2019

Endace, a specialist in high-speed network recording, traffic playback and analytics hosting, has launched its new EndaceProbe 8200 Series Analytics Platform for monitoring in 10GbE networks.

The new 8200 Series combines 100% accurate packet capture with deep storage capacity, rapid-search capability and hosting density in a compact 2RU footprint. 

This modular approach allows customers to continually and cost-effectively, expand their monitoring infrastructure. 

As their networks grow and new cyber threats emerge EndaceProbes provide the flexibility to deploy new solutions without costly hardware expansions or replacements.

With 360 terabytes of effective packet storage and write-to-disk speed of 15Gbps, the 8200 Series is an ideal building block for growing networks, allowing customers to easily scale packet capture speed, storage capacity and hosting capability as network bandwidth consumption increases over time. 

The 8200’s hosting environment enables easy deployment of multiple security and performance analytics solutions from Endace’s industry-leading Fusion partners, as well as from open source projects.

The EndaceProbe’s modular design lets customers stack or group multiple EndaceProbes together to form a network-wide packet capture and analytics infrastructure. 

This centrally managed, centrally searchable infrastructure allows them to deploy new or upgraded analytics solutions quickly and easily across the network. 

Hosted applications have access to all network traffic in real-time for detection of security threats or performance issues, and new tools can be deployed in parallel with legacy solutions on the same 8200 series platform.

“The ever-growing volume of increasingly sophisticated threats has fueled tremendous innovation in the cybersecurity industry, resulting in an explosion of new security solutions. Customers have told us they want to trial or deploy these new solutions quickly and at scale, a task made difficult when hardware installations and truck rolls are involved,” says Endace CEO Stuart Wilson. 

“The 8200 Series solves this problem with its powerful hosting environment that enables rapid deployment of new analytics tools as virtual instances. Now customers can roll out new solutions in hours rather than months.”

Alerts and issues raised by hosted tools can be investigated using the deep network history and rapid-search capabilities of the 8200 series. 

The 8200 series gives analysts access to definitive packet level evidence they need to resolve issues quickly and with confidence. 

The ability to quickly find packets-of-interest from within petabytes of recorded network history enables faster, more accurate issue resolution, and greater productivity for SecOps, DevOps and NetOps teams. 

Integrating network history into chosen analytics tools, SIEMs, and dashboards streamlines workflows and further improves team productivity.
