Gigamon and Endace Partner to Provide Complete Visibility Into Network Traffic for Performance and Security Analytics

Partnership enables speedy, conclusive investigation for network security threats and performance issues

London, UK, August 14, 2018 – Endace, a specialist in high-speed network recording, traffic playback and analytics hosting, and Gigamon, the company leading the convergence of network and security operations to help organizations improve their security stance, today announced a technology partnership to dramatically improve visibility into network traffic for SecOps, NetOps and DevOps teams.

The partnership brings together the EndaceProbe™ Analytics Platform and the GigaSECURE® Security Delivery Platformto give analysts the complete packet-level visibility they need to quickly and conclusively investigate and respond to security threats and remediate network and application performance issues.

Typically, analysts often struggle to uncover the evidence they need to quickly determine the root cause of cyber threats, breaches and network or application performance problems so they can respond appropriately. This is becoming more and more challenging as threat actors increasingly leverage encrypted traffic streams to hide evidence of their activity.

The GigaSECURE platform, a next generation network packet broker, delivers customers total control over how they direct traffic to their security and performance monitoring solutions. It enables filtering, load-balancing and decryption of encrypted traffic in addition to other features. EndaceProbes accurately record network traffic at full line rate and provide high-performance hosting for network security and performance analytics solutions in Application Dock™ the EndaceProbe’s built-in hosting VM hosting environment.

By combining the GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform with EndaceProbes customers can accurately record every packet on all segments of their network and decrypt encrypted traffic before it is delivered to hosted analytics applications and recorded by EndaceProbes.

“Investigating security threats or troubleshooting performance problems can be a slow, challenging and inconclusive process if you don’t have access to the packets,” said Stuart Wilson, CEO of Endace. “With the Endace and Gigamon partnership, customers have access to a highly scalable solution that delivers the definitive evidence they need to rapidly and accurately investigate and resolve issues.”

Phil Griston, Senior Director of Partner Marketing and Development at Gigamon, commented: “Combining the GigaSECURE Security Delivery Platform with EndaceProbes gives our mutual customers total control over, and visibility into, the traffic on their networks. They can direct traffic with absolute precision to the EndaceProbe platforms on their network for analysis and recording. And control traffic flows to the security and performance analytics solutions they have deployed – both hosted on their EndaceProbes or standalone.”

Talari receives Recommended Rating from NSS Labs in industry’s first SD-WAN Group Test results

Talari is 1 of only 3 products out of 9 tested to receive ‘Recommended’ rating

9 August 2018 – Talari Networks – the leader in Failsafe SD-WANs™ – announced today that it received a “Recommended” Rating from NSS Labs in its first-ever Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) Group Test.

NSS Labs, Inc. is a global leader and trusted source for independent, fact-based cybersecurity guidance. In this groundbreaking, inaugural test, nine of the industry’s leading SD-WAN products were examined to help enterprises understand the merits of products in the market and identify the capabilities best suited to meet their use case requirements.

Talari’s SD-WAN offering was one of only three out of nine products tested to receive the coveted ‘Recommended’ rating. The NSS Labs tests covered key areas of differentiation for SD-WAN products on Quality of Experience (QoE) for VoIP, QoE for video and network performance.

The NSS Labs SD-WAN Group test provides the most comprehensive independent technical research available of SD-WAN products on the market today and is based upon hundreds of hours of rigorous testing. NSS Labs is committed to providing empirical data and objective group test results that enable organisations to make educated decisions about purchasing and optimising security infrastructure products and services. As with all NSS Labs group tests, there is no fee for participation and the test methodology is available in the public domain to provide transparency and to help enterprises understand the factors behind test results.

“While the SD-WAN market is growing quickly, it has also gotten muddled by the sheer number of vendors claiming to have a high-quality enterprise solution,” said Talari CEO Patrick Sweeney. “The NSS Labs SD-WAN Group test provides greater clarity by giving hard core technical answers on which vendors meet the needs of enterprises, versus other SD-WAN products that can’t pass, or will not submit to independent testing.”

Failsafe SD-WAN technology that delivers MPLS-class high availability and QoE for enterprise WANs using Internet connections to augment and/or replace their low bandwidth, expensive MPLS circuits is critical for enterprises seeking to adopt SD-WANs for the various benefits they deliver without sacrificing uptime or performance predictability for both interactive and real-time applications.

“The SD-WAN market holds strong potential and there are several impressive technologies available today for companies seeking to enhance or replace traditional WAN deployments,” said Jason Brvenik, Chief Technology Officer at NSS Labs. “The NSS Labs 2018 SD-WAN Group Test is the industry’s first baseline assessment of these technologies. Our testing validates that this is a technology that is ready for prime time.”

More information on Talari’s detailed results, comparative test results and the test methodology used can be obtained from Talari’s website, www.talari.com.

About Talari
Talari is the leader in Failsafe SD-WANs™ that deliver both MPLS-class high availability and high QoE (Quality of Experience) predictable application performance for both TCP-based apps and real-time apps like VoIP and videoconferencing, whether built on a hybrid MPLS plus Internet WAN fabric, or a WAN comprised of only Internet connections. Talari technology delivers a multi-link WAN with 50 – 400 times more bandwidth per dollar, WAN cost reductions of 40% – 80%, and greater network reliability and superior application QoE than any single MPLS network. Talari is deployed in over 500 customers in more than 9,000 locations in over 40 countries, and boasts a 90+ NPS (Net Promoter Score). For more information, visit www.talari.com.

About NSS Labs, Inc.
NSS Labs, Inc. is recognized globally as the most trusted source for independent, fact-based cybersecurity guidance. Our mission is to advance transparency and accountability within the cybersecurity industry. Our unmatched foundation in security testing, along with our extensive research and global threat analysis capabilities, provide the basis for NSS Labs’ Cloud Platform for Continuous Security Validation.

New Redgate partner, Nexus Technology, demonstrates the growing importance of database DevOps in the banking sector

Cambridge UK, Tuesday, 7 August 2018 – In its ongoing quest to offer clients expert on-the-ground advice as well as software to introduce DevOps to database development, Redgate Software has added Channel Islands based Nexus Technology to its worldwide partner roster.

Over the last two years, Redgate has expanded and extended its portfolio of database development software to enable clients to include the database in their DevOps processes. By integrating with and plugging into the software already in use for applications, the faster development and release of features that DevOps promises can be delivered upon without the database being a bottleneck.

At the same time, IT consultancy Nexus has been building a reputation in the Channel Islands for its skills in delivering technology solutions, from software development to project management, particularly in the banking and financial sectors. The consultancy’s expertise in advising customers how to drive productivity and revenue by using insights from data is a notable strength.

As Dave Edge, Nexus Co-Founder and CTO comments: “Every company has data, but not all of them know what to do with it and they may be ticking along, unaware of how data can take their business up a gear. That’s why the new partnership is good news. It matches our skills in data analytics, forecasting and predicting, with Redgate’s software solutions that make database development faster while keeping data safe.”

New legislation like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as well as increasing customer concerns about data breaches, also mean banks and other financial institutions are seeking ways to protect customer data while still being able to improve the services they offer.

Conversely, perhaps, introducing DevOps to the development of the database as well as applications helps companies to stay compliant with data privacy legislation while streamlining the process. Laborious tasks are automated in a reliable, repeatable manner to remove human error from the equation, and an audit trail of what changes were made, who made them, and when they were deployed is provided that can be used to demonstrate compliance.

Redgate’s software is already used by 91% of companies in the Fortune 100, and the new partnership with Nexus now means companies in the Channel Islands are in the ideal position to explore how too they can take advantage of database DevOps.

As Cass Lloyd, Partner Manager for Redgate, concludes: “Once businesses start to demand more from their data, the way their databases are maintained and protected also becomes more critical. This often means adapting the development process as well as introducing new software. Our growing list of partners around the world demonstrates the value they can offer to companies who want to use our software to improve their database development, and Nexus is a welcome addition.”
