Solera Networks Partners with EMC to Break the Network Forensics Scalability Barrier
March 2nd, 2010
“Introducing Solera DS SAN™, powered by EMC™, for active network forensics.
San Francisco, CA — March 2, 2010 – Solera Networks, a leading network forensics products and services company today announced its partnership with EMC Corporation, a worldwide leader in flexible, scalable, and secure information infrastructures. The companies’ technologies will create a network forensics storage solution to meet the growing needs of Fortune 1000 companies and government institutions.
Today’s threats target enterprise and government networks using tactics that are achieving a new level of sophistication and will remain undetectable by current signature-based security tools. Operation Aurora that targeted Google™ and other prominent organizations, and recent ZeuS botnet variants, are recent examples of these threats. Network forensics products like Solera Networks are the only solution to defend against unidentified, persistent threats to the network. Enterprises need the ability to store data in a single scalable location, with redundancy built in, without sacrificing instant access to that data. There has been a barrier to providing these critical elements and maintaining lossless capture on today’s high-speed networks.
The Solera DS SAN solution, powered by EMC, breaks the single-system storage barrier by providing incident responders instant assess to the full detail of historical network activity in up to one petabyte of captured network data. Unlike competitive solutions, which require the use of multiple standalone systems to scale to the needs of modern networks, DS SAN simplifies and consolidates hardware deployments while reducing management costs. DS SAN is available immediately in configurations starting at 100 TB of capture storage for network speeds ranging from 100 Mbps through 10 Gbps.
“EMC is the industry leader for enterprise storage solutions,” said Steve Shillingford, CEO of Solera Networks. “As we are becoming the most recommended and requested network forensics solution for large enterprise and government, customers are asking for even larger windows of captured network traffic and the ability to sift through terabytes of data for specific details of any security event. Combined with EMC, we deliver a network surveillance platform for effective incident response that can scale to the needs of any organization.”
A key component of Solera Networks technology is Solera DSFS™, the groundbreaking custom-built file system designed to achieve 10 Gbps network capture while offering instant access to any packet of information that has traversed the network. Combined with EMC storage solutions, Solera DS SAN breaks the high-speed capture barrier that other technologies are unable able to overcome.”
