Endace partners with Plixer to enhance security forensics

Endace has partnered with Plixer to provide integration between Plixer´s Scrutinizer, flow-based analysis solutions, and EndaceProbe network recorders to improve the ability for SecOps and NetOps teams to investigate network security and performance issues, the company said.

Using flow-based data, Scrutinizer delivers insight into user, application and network device behavior and improves real-time situational awareness for SecOps and NetOps teams. Scrutinizer´s built-in flow analytics performs behavioral analysis on collected flows to identify suspicious behavior on the network.

EndaceProbes, deployed across the network, capture and record a 100 percent accurate record of network traffic, providing a full, packet-level back-in-time history of network activity that is a perfect complement to Scrutinizer´s flow based monitoring and alerting.

Integration between EndaceProbes and Scrutinizer allows users to pivot from an event of interest in the Scrutinizer UI directly to the related packets recorded on EndaceProbes. Packets of interest can be retrieved from the EndaceProbes seamlessly from within the Scrutinizer user interface, allowing immediate, packet-level examination using wireshark, EndacePackets or other packet-level analysis tools.

Endace is a provider of high-speed network monitoring and recording technology to monitor and protect some complex networks. Customers include global banks, telcos and service providers, media and broadcast companies, health organizations, retailers, e-commerce and web giants, governments and large enterprises.
