nPulse Technologies today announced that the company’s Capture Probe eXtreme (CPX) 4.0 appliance won an Info Security Global Excellence Award. The ultrafast, multi-petabyte traffic recording and analysis platform earned a Silver award in the Most Innovative Security Product (Hardware) of the Year category. The 10th Annual 2014 Global Excellence Awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are raising the bar in all areas of security and technologies.
“This award validates nPulse’s performance and innovative approach to delivering comprehensive, integrated network forensics capabilities to operators of today’s fastest networks,” said Tim Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer, nPulse Technologies. “By recognizing CPX – already reinventing packet capture and analysis and the cornerstone of nPulse’s Cyclone Network Forensics Platform – this honor shows the strength of our approach to helping customers dramatically reduce incident response times, uncover emerging threats and continually harden their assets against ongoing attacks.”
The Cyclone Network Forensics Platform is designed to dramatically slash incident response times. It builds on nPulse’s performance leadership in full packet capture by adding advanced, line-rate extraction of crucial application layer security metadata and a flexible big data security analytics framework to index, search, analyze and visualize network traffic and expeditiously reconstruct cyber attack kill chains. Cyclone helps security professionals immediately pivot from overwhelming amounts of data and disparate security alerts to precise, actionable information on malicious activity. With CPX 4.0 as its backbone, automating a comprehensive cycle of steps to ensure that all network traffic is captured and inspected for forensics and incident response activities, Cyclone provides the traffic visibility necessary to defeat attacks and reduce mean time to resolution for advanced network threats.
nPulse’s Capture Probe eXtreme (CPX) 4.0 leverages lossless packet capture technology to provide easily searched and indexed storage of network packets, connections, and session data. CPX operates at 20Gbps and captures 100 percent of network traffic, time stamping every packet with nanosecond resolution. The network forensics capabilities of CPX allow administrators to search 400GB of recorded data per second, meaning a large enterprise’s entire span of traffic in a 24-hour period can be scanned in as little as two minutes. CPX’s features and performance give security operation centers the tools to quickly see what is happening on their networks, when it started and how long it’s been going on – helping to dramatically enhance and accelerate security investigations and resolution efforts.
Winners were announced earlier this week in San Francisco during the annual RSA Conference. For a complete listing of award winners please visit: http://www.infosecurityproductsguide.com/world/.
Also at RSA, nPulse announced the launch of its Cyclone Network Forensics Platform alongside an agreement with FireEye to integrate the capabilities of CPX 4.0 with the FireEye Security Platform through nPulse’s Pivot2Pcap API partner program.
