Endace Launches 10/40GbE Capable Branch Office Network Analytics Platform
LONDON, Jan. 9, 2018 -- Endace, a leader in high-speed network recording and network analytics hosting technology, today announced the release of the new EndaceProbe EP-124 Network Analytics Platform, designed specifically for deployment in branch offices with 1GbE or 10GbE infrastructure and tight space constraints.
Recent advances in high speed Ethernet technology has made it affordable for organisations to migrate large office and branch office LANs to 10GbE, providing a much-needed boost to the performance and responsiveness of applications. However, monitoring tools are often left behind and are unable to monitor these higher speed networks. This leaves networks exposed, and dramatically increases risk, when network monitoring is no longer available for those branch offices.
The EndaceProbe EP-124, with its compact chassis and high performance SSD storage, provides the ideal network recording and analytics hosting platform for those offices that run 1GbE or 10GbE networks. And for networks that run 1GbE today it’s perfect for future-proofing monitoring infrastructure with 10GbE and 40GbE compatibility.
The EndaceProbe’s built-in Application Dock hosting environment allows network security and performance analytics tools to be hosted virtually on the EP-124, further easing the migration to higher speed 10GbE networks without losing valuable network monitoring capability or requiring future hardware upgrades.
Hundreds of EndaceProbe EP-124s can be managed as a single EndaceFabric, allowing network traffic recorded across many remote office networks to be centrally mined and analysed for rapid response to security incidents or performance issues from a central location.
Vice President Product Management, Cary Wright, says “When migrating to higher speed LAN infrastructure, you don’t want your performance or security monitoring tools to stop working because they can’t cope with 10GbE. The EP-124 provides great future proofing. It’s the perfect branch office platform to record network packet history and run your choice of virtual monitoring tools in one compact and high-performance appliance.”
The EndaceProbe 124 is fully SSD-based for ultra-high reliability and performance. Its compact, short-depth form factor makes it easy and cost-effective to deploy in remote office locations. The EndaceProbe 124 uses Endace’s proven, 100% accurate, DAG data capture card technology, and offers four 1/10GbE or 1 x 40GbE monitoring ports and 3.8TB of onboard storage.
The new EndaceProbe 124 is available immediately.
Endace’s multifunctional Network Analytics Platform can host 3rd-party network analytics applications while simultaneously recording a 100% accurate Network History, providing definitive evidence for investigating cybersecurity threats, quantifying data breaches and analysing network or application performance problems.
Deploying a dedicated Network Analytics Platform enables agile deployment of analytics functions on-demand and dramatically reduces OPEX and CAPEX costs by consolidating datacentre hardware. Hosted analytics applications can analyse live traffic at full line rate, or use Playback to analyse historical traffic for powerful, back-in-time analysis.
