Gold standard packet capture at a price the market deserves
Endace 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 low price for the DAG10X2-S 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 contact our sales team at email@example.com, or talk to your reseller, to find out about the new pricing.
When accurate timing is everything
For many organizations, highly accurate timing is critical to providing accurate audit trails, allowing accurate reconstruction of events for security
forensics or troubleshooting microburst performance issues.
Endace CTO, Dr. Stephen Donnelly, has put together a whitepaper based on the presentation which he and Endace CEO, Stuart Wilson, presented at STAC conferences in London, Chicago and New York recently, which looks at the accuracy of PTP (IEEE 1588) timing in a live High Frequency Trading (HFT) WAN environment.

For high frequency traders (HFTs), complying with new obligations that will come into force under MiFID II, and proving compliance, will pose some significant technical challenges.
Stephen Donnelly, Endace’s CTO, gave a presentation comparing GPS and PTP timing accuracy at the STAC Summit in London (May 10) and he will also be presenting at STAC Chicago (May 17). Endace’s CEO, Stu Wilson, will present at the STAC Summit in New York (June 13).
Stephen also attended STAC’s Essentials of MiFID 2 Time Compliance workshop in London on Monday. This workshop was an excellent opportunity for HFTs to get up-to-speed with what the new MiFID II requirements mean for their organizations and how to prepare for them. More on what came out of this in our next newsletter.
We’re looking forward to the opportunity to catch up with our HFT customers at all three STAC events. If you haven’t yet registered for STAC Chicago or New York but are interested in attending, let us know.
Yes, it’s events season again and Endace will be exhibiting at a number of trade shows over the next couple of months. Here are some of the ones you can catch us at.
We’d love to catch up. So if you are attending any of these events, drop by our stand and say hello.

With up to 192TB of storage per appliance, the new EndaceProbe™ 9000-XS series network recorders provide a highly scalable network recording solution, offering Petabytes of clustered and/or distributed storage capable of storing weeks, or months, of network history.
The massive storage of the 9000-XS EndaceProbes makes them an ideal choice as always-on recorders capturing a detailed history of network activity for forensic analysis of data breaches and speeding up the investigation and resolution of network security or performance issues.
See our press release about the new XS series and check out the complete range of EndaceProbe 100% accurate, high-speed network recorders.

Network monitoring tends to focus heavily on bandwidth, addressing the question, “Do I have the capacity to carry the traffic that my business requires?” Capacity, however, must include session count and lifecycle, which are often overlooked until they become a problem. That’s why EndaceVisionTM 6.0 Network Visibility Software has added two new tools to deal with sessions: TCP Flags view and client/server breakdown.

When the current EndaceProbe® Network Recorder product range was introduced more than five years ago, most enterprise networks were only starting to think about upgrading to 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) speeds. Since then, most IT departments use 10GbE in their core, 1GbE to the desktop and laptop has become standard, and many are organizations are looking to move up to 25GbE, 40GbE or higher speeds. At the time, EndaceProbes were the highest performing and most reliable network packet capture device available, helping our customers migrate their monitoring from 1GbE to 10GbE. In the same way that we enabled that migration, we are now introducing the next generation of network recording products as enterprises incorporate higher network speeds.

So what’s going on?
Dynatrace and Endace have announced NetPod™, a fully integrated solution that combines Dynatrace’s Data Center Real-User Monitoring and Endace’s EndaceProbe™ Network Recorder. It is no small thing when two independent companies agree to take their market-leading products and create a new branded offering, so you have to figure there is something valuable going on here.

Seems like security incidents are occurring more often with mild to significant impact on consumers and various organizations, such as Target and Sony.
Referring to the Verizon Data Breach Report year after year confirms that incident response times to such incidents are increasing, rather than decreasing, with root cause identification of the problems not occurring for months after the security incident in many cases. This can cause a pessimistic view among many security teams, however, there are a lot of good things happening in the security space that I want to share with you.

We’ve all heard that the application is now the network. This paradigm shift moved us from the simple port-based definition of applications that was prevalent up until the end of the last decade, to the more awkward reality that applications are much more complex and no longer conformed to such a simple scheme. For network operators, understanding the applications on the networks was paramount and Endace responded to this by incorporating deep packet inspection (DPI) technology into its EndaceProbeTM Network Recorders in 2012.
