Solera Networks enhances appliance for big data security

Solera Networks announced enhancements to its DeepSee Virtual Appliance that provides visibility of network traffic—including traffic between applications running in the virtual network.

The appliance now supports VMware ESX servers, Citrix XenServer, Windows Hyper-V Virtual and KVM environments to deliver a solution for security intelligence, analytics and cyber threat detection.

Organizations can now capture, classify and reconstruct up to 10 terabytes of packets, sessions and files per virtual instance with clustering capabilities into the petabyte range—thereby supporting even the largest data center virtualization deployments and initiatives.

Also announced is the DeepSee Virtual Appliance – Lab Edition, a new no-cost version of the company’s DeepSee Virtual Appliance that is easily deployed on desktops and laptops for simplicity and portability. The new Lab Edition is ideal for threat researchers, security consultants, security analysts and incident responders.

“With the high enterprise adoption of virtualization technology, enterprise security teams need to have a significant focus on virtual security. Security breaches and incidents can result in significant damage, especially with the amount of sensitive data that resides in virtual environments,” said Richard Stiennon, founder and analyst at IT-Harvest. “Having the ability to deploy a flexible and cost-effective virtual appliance for network analysis, visibility and intelligence is critical to effectively securing virtual infrastructure from today’s advanced malware and cyber-threats.”
