Sold out Suricon demonstrates strong interest in Suricata


Having been one of the original sponsors of the OISF, we were thrilled to be involved again as a community partner sponsor at Suricon 2016.  The conference ran Nov 9-10 and with an international contingent of attendees and sponsors, Washington DC on election night was a very unique way to kick off the conference! 

It was great to reacquaint with old friends at the OSIF. Kelley Misata and the Core team did a fantastic job of organizing the conference.  There were some really interesting presentations from Core team presenters and the Suricata community. Check out the conference highlights here for links to some of the presentation slides.


We had a lot of interest from attendees interested in using Endace DAG cards to improve the performance and fidelity of Suricata. For anyone wanting to find out how to use Suricata with DAG, we put together a technical brief which you can download here.

To celebrate Endace’s return as a sponsor, we offered attendees a special 2-for-1 deal on our DAG 10X2-S cards.  We think this card really hits the price/performance mark, providing a professional capture card at a very attractive price. And judging by level of the interest we saw at the conference, attendees agreed (a reminder to conference attendees, the offer closes Dec 15th, so don’t forget to return your claim form!)

Suricon 2016 was completely sold out and it’s great to see the attendance and interest growing so strongly.  Endace is looking forward to sponsoring Suricon 2017 in Prague which promises to be even bigger and better again!
