PacketSled and Interface Masters Partner to Provide Sophisticated Network Forensics and Visibility Solution

Scalable Passive Solution for Network Monitoring and Breach Detection with PacketSled Sensor and Niagara 4248 Network Packet Broker

San Jose, California, January 22, 2016 – PacketSled, a leader in Network Security and Interface Masters, a leader in Network Visibility and Uptime Solutions have partnered to offer a complete network security solution by providing continuous monitoring, breach detection, incident response, user behavior analysis and full network forensics records across single and multi-network 1G and 10G link deployments.

Together, PacketSled and Interface Masters offer an infinitely scalable, plug-and-play, passive monitoring solution that delivers industry leading network security while ensuring network visibility and uptime, with intuitive user interface, reporting and alerts.

An Interface Masters (or any industry standard) 1G or 10G Network TAP or Span port can be connected to the Interface Masters’ Niagara 4248. The PacketBroker ports (1G/10G flexible SFP+ ports) provide the ability to load balance, aggregate, filter and/or mirror the Network traffic provided by the TAP or Span to one or multiple PacketSled sensors. The PacketSled Sensors then perform deep packet inspection to extract all attributes required to perform forensic analysis, while compressing the data to 1/100th of its original size. This data is then processed with analytics, file analysis, known signatures and behavioral rules to alert to actionable security incidents. PacketSled’s Network Forensics platform allows users to query network traffic via a natural language syntax and visualize the results to detect advanced threats. Analysts collaborate to rapidly resolve incidents and report findings to stakeholders. PacketSled sensors are software based and can be installed on commodity hardware.

Interface Masters and PacketSled integrated solution offers a leading edge solution to the market that facilitates real-time analytics, forensics recordings and full 1G and 10G Network Visibility and Uptime , stated Aaron Nankin, Director of Business Development at Interface Masters Technologies. The Packet Broker support provides granular Network access and packet capture which end customers can leverage to provide complete network monitoring and breach detection.

The Interface Masters’ Network Packet Broker provides reliable and configurable control of network traffic, allowing PacketSled to provide a solution that scales north of 100Gbps on commodity hardware.” stated Matt Harrigan. “We’re excited to partner with a company which provides a robust and easy to manage solution to a difficult problem.
