Napatech and Credocom Create Joint Solution for Palo Alto Firewalls

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Napatech announced today a joint solution with Credocom that uses Napatech's Pandion network recorder to enable customers who use Palo Alto Networks' firewall to see detailed information on security incidents. Ponemon Research found the average enterprise security team will see about 2500 security incidents per day, but they can only investigate about four percent of them. Clearly, organizations need greater visibility into their network security.

By leveraging the Palo Alto "log-link" integration concept, Credocom created a customized, one-click solution that can extract the relevant file from the detailed packet data captured and stored by the Napatech Pandion network recorder solution. Palo Alto firewall users can now drill down into the details of a specific security event quickly, easily and intuitively.

  • Real-time, 100 percent packet capture: The Pandion recorder captures and writes all network data to disk at speeds from 10 to 40 Gbps without losing a single bit. The amount of storage can be extended to match retention time requirements in a scalable, flexible way.
  • Greater detection: This joint solution saves valuable time and scarce professinal resources so more security events can be examined and analyzed, leading ultimately to more threats and breaches being detected.
  • Real-time forensic analysis: The solution provides greater context and depth, enabling a more accurate forensic analysis and faster detection and containment of breaches.

Peter Ekner, CTO, Napatech, said: "The average cost of a data breach is now $4 million, so effective and fast network security is more important to enterprises than ever. This joint solution gives users the speed and accuracy they need to separate the wheat from the chaff and focus on the security incidents that present a legitimate threat. We're glad to be part of a custom solution that offers enterprises greater visibility into their network environment."

Thomas S. Groenne, CEO, Credocom, said: "Next-generation firewalls from Palo Alto Networks are in the core of most of our customers' infrastructure and most forensic and analysis activities are based on traffic flowing through these. By introducing the Pandion recorder to the infrastructure, which effectively integrates with Palo Alto Networks firewalls, we can offer our customers better and faster incident response capabilities. They will be able to "go back in time" to see exactly what happened, and they will be able to do it directly from the firewall interface they know and understand."

Day 4, Cisco Live! - The Wrap

Day 4 was the final day of our first ever Cisco Live! We had a great show, with many great conversations and new connections with existing and potential end users, resellers, partners and job hunters.

Day 3, Cisco Live!

Day 3 of Cisco Live is history! For Fiber Mountain, we continued to enjoy visits from decision makers and influencers who were eager to share their data center and structured cabling challenges.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.

Day 1, Cisco Live!

Fiber Mountain is exhibiting at Cisco Live! In Las Vegas for the first time ever! Our first day was hugely successful from just about any perspective - from quantity and quality of booth visitors to successful meetings with customers.
