nPulse Technologies Adds Full Packet Capture Capabilities to the FireEye Security Platform
Pivot2Pcap Integration Gives FireEye Customers Ultrafast Packet Capture Capabilities and Interoperability with nPulse’s Cyclone Network Forensics Platform Reducing Incident Response Times
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today at the RSA Conference 2014, nPulse Technologies announced that it has integrated capabilities of its Capture Probe eXtreme (CPX) 4.0 full packet capture appliance with the FireEye Security Platform, through nPulse’s Pivot2Pcap API partner program. By integrating nPulse’s ultrafast packet capture capabilities with the FireEye platform, customers benefit from CPX’s precise, high-speed full packet capture and analysis features that complement FireEye’s real-time threat detection to deliver ultrafast traffic analysis and application visibility.
“The integration of nPulse’s recording and analysis capabilities into the FireEye Security Platform will further enable our customers to enhance their security responsiveness and counter sophisticated cyber attacks and threats.”
nPulse’s Pivot2Pcap integration with FireEye adds additional compatibility with nPulse’s Cyclone Network Forensics Platform, giving FireEye customers the option of leveraging their existing security investments within nPulse’s forensics framework ensuring all network traffic is captured and inspected for forensics and incident response activities.
The combination of nPulse's unmatched packet capture capabilities with the FireEye Security Platform enables security teams to quickly pivot from security alerts and immediately view precise network packets and session-level data for a given event. By allowing users to easily locate and decode an entire session, nPulse provides detailed visibility into potential malicious activities and payloads; dramatically reducing the time spent searching for available packet data. Users can expand searches to view network activities before and after a security event, further enhancing visibility for incident response and forensics activities.
“FireEye is the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks,” said Steve Pataky, vice president of worldwide channels and alliances at FireEye. “The integration of nPulse’s recording and analysis capabilities into the FireEye Security Platform will further enable our customers to enhance their security responsiveness and counter sophisticated cyber attacks and threats.”
nPulse's Pivot2Pcap API will provide FireEye platform customers with deep insight into network traffic and activities through simple drill-down access to session, connection, and packet information for network speeds up to 20Gbps.
“Now security teams using nPulse’s CPX appliances or Cyclone network forensics capabilities alongside the FireEye Security Platform can effectively mitigate malicious events by using our fine-grain visibility to pinpoint threats, prioritize response actions and harden security postures against future attacks,” said Tim Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer, nPulse Technologies.
