AUCKLAND, NZ: Endace, a provider of high-speed network monitoring and recording technology, announces ultra-fast EndaceProbe 8100 Series Network Recorders. The latest offering provides ultra high-performance for the forensic investigation of network security breaches and for capturing and monitoring network traffic at 40Gbps recording rate in mid-size businesses.
EndaceProbes deliver network wide visibility for security and network event investigation including centralized search and retrieval of recorded traffic. They are available in a range of configurations for monitoring, capturing, analyzing and visualizing traffic from the edge to the core of the network. This ensures security teams can continue to access and investigate recorded traffic—even during events such as DDOS attacks when monitoring systems may be affected.
EndaceProbes is bundled with EndaceVision, a network history search and visualization tool, efficient access to packets and seamless integration between EndaceProbes, EndaceVision and existing tools maximizes tool utility and streamlines work-flows. They are built on DAG (data capture card) technology. The 8100 Series EndaceProbes offer up to eight 1GbE/10GbE or two 40GbE monitoring ports, allowing simultaneous monitoring of multiple links on a single 2RU appliance. They leverage highly optimized SSD-based RAID storage to deliver sustained, 40Gbps write-to-disk rates into 24TB of onboard storage.
“It’s essential to ensure your network monitoring and recording infrastructure can record without loss, even under the heavy of loads you would experience during a DDOS attack,” says Stuart Wilson, CEO of Endace, “Being able to reconstruct even the smallest aspect of an attack vector, exactly when you most need it – under heavy DDOS attack - is critical for effective breach analysis and legal audit trail creation.”
