Sold out Suricon demonstrates strong interest in Suricata

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!


Provenance™️ helps firms meet new MFID 2 regulatory technology standards

Original Entry by : Endace

We attended the Fall STAC summits in Chicago and London recently, and will be at STAC New York on November 7th. At STAC we’ve been talking about Provenance™️, a new feature available now in all our DAG™️10X cards and coming to our EndaceProbe™️ Network Recorders early next year.

New MFID 2 regulatory technology standards (known as RTS 25) for recording trade data will impose tough new standards on HFT firms operating in the European market. Under the new regulations, traders must ensure that timestamps on recorded trade data are accurate to at least 1 microsecond granularity and synchronised to UTC with a maximum divergence of less than 100 microseconds. They must also be able to demonstrate traceability to UTC by documenting the system design, functioning and specifications. There’s a few technical hurdles to clear to meet those requirements and Provenance is how we ensure you don’t knock any over.

DAG 5.5.0 software update

Original Entry by : Endace

The new DAG 5.5.0 software release is available with some exciting and innovative new features:

Add Provenance smart data to captured packets

“Packets don’t lie – unless you don’t know where they came from.”

One of our customers said that once. And he was right.

So with DAG 5.5.0 we’re introducing a revolutionary new capability. Now you can add “Provenance” smart-data fields to your capture files and streams to provide full, contextual information about where the packets were captured and what the environment was like at the time.

New low pricing on DAG 10X2-S

Original Entry by : Endace
Gold standard packet capture at a price the market deserves

dag-10x-sEndace DAG cards have long been recognized as the industry gold standard for reliable and highly accurate packet capture and processing.

But we wanted to ensure DAG quality is available to everyone, and we think the time is right for a shakeup in the capture card market.

So we’ve set a new, aggressive RRP for the DAG10X2-S of just US$2500, to ensure it is the most affordable card in its class, bar none.

Now there’s no reason to compromise on quality.

If you are interested in purchasing the DAG10X2-S at the new reduced price, contact our sales team at sales@endace.com, or talk to your reseller.
