Cisco Live Europe 2017 A Great Success

Original Entry by : Mark Evans

Upwards of 12,000 people packed Messe Berlin for the Cisco Live Europe 2017 event last week. It was a busy, exciting and noisy atmosphere and a lot of fun to attend. As a Cisco Solutions Partner, Endace was pleased to be invited to be one of the vendors exhibiting in the Cisco Security Partner Village.

Cybersecurity was a hot topic at Cisco Live, and the Security Partner Village was bustling, with lots of attendees interested in seeing the latest cybersecurity solutions.

Endace’s Sandrine Kubach and Rob Earley were inundated with people interested to find out how we integrate our full packet capture solutions with Cisco’s security solutions.

Sandrine and Rob demonstrated the integration between our EndaceProbe Network Recorders and Cisco’s Firepower NG-IPS.

Endace’s Fusion Connector for Firepower allows security analysts to click from an alert in the Firepower Management Console to instantly view and analyze related network packets recorded on EndaceProbes. This streamlined workflow dramatically reduces investigation times and provides definitive evidence of exactly what has happened so analysts can respond appropriately.

It was great to have another of our partners, Plixer, demonstrating the integration between Scrutinizer and EndaceProbes at a stand just metres away from our own too!

Cisco Live Europe was a fantastic event. To all those who stopped by our stand, thank-you for making the time. It was great to meet you and we look forward to talking to you again soon.

Thanks to the Cisco team for their wonderful organization and support. We’re excited about being at Cisco Live US in Las Vegas later in the year!

If you weren’t able to make it to Berlin, check out the great highlights reel that Cisco has put together – it gives a great sense what a busy event it was:


Dynatrace Perform 2017

Endace was an exhibiting partner at Dynatrace Perform in Las Vegas this month. Perform is the annual conference for Dynatrace users and attracts attendees from all over the world.

The conference sessions were packed, and our booth in the partner area was swamped during the partner sessions!

In fact it was so busy we didn’t have time to take photos of our booth! So here’s one of Dynatrace’s photos instead. And if you want more, there’s a big gallery of photos on this page.

In the Partner Lounge, Blaine Deutsch and Tom Leahy demonstrated how EndaceProbes integrate with Dynatrace DC RUM to provide instant access to network packet history as definitive evidence for troubleshooting application performance issues. They also showed how using EndaceProbes to Playback recorded history to an instance of the virtual AMD agent hosted in Application Dock offers new options for deep investigation of historical events.

If you weren’t able to make the event, here are the presentations:

We thoroughly enjoyed being at Perform 2017. And being in Las Vegas on Superbowl Sunday prior to the conference was certainly an experience too.

Thanks to all the attendees who came to our stand. We had some really interesting conversations which we look forward to picking up with you again very soon.

And thanks to Nathan, Mike, Paula and the team from Dynatrace for making us welcome and ensuring we had everything we needed too. A great event guys!


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!
