Reston, Virginia – (The Hosting News) – March 28, 2007 – Integrator of hardware acceleration open-source network security and monitoring applications tools, nPulse Networks LLC, has released a new security-hardened application of its nProbe appliance solution.
nProbe was developed to be a a highly-tuned, light-weight NetFlow probe, derived from the open-source ntop project managed by Luca Deri (www.ntop.org). nPulse is the commercial representative of ntop.org in North America. Implemented on nPulse’s Catapult hardware acceleration platform, the entry-level nProbe appliance can capture and inspect over 1.1 million packets per second on its gigabit monitoring port, and generates NetFlow v5/9 or IPFIX records for export to an external network management system or “collector.”
Peter Shaw, VP of Marketing for nPulse Networks remarked, “We have validated nProbe for compatibility with most of the widely-used network security and monitoring solutions. Many such systems use NetFlow data in watching for anomalous or threatening behavior on distributed networks. nProbe can be a cost-effective extension for existing solutions, or a valuable standalone tool in its own right.” Pricing for the single-port, 1 gigabit nProbe appliance starts at $3,999, and multi-port, hardware accelerated configurations are also available.
nPulse is a hardware-acceleration open-source-based solution firm for network security, network monitoring, traffic analysis and data management. With its customers and partners, nPulse works every day at the leading edge of network security and monitoring technology, providing its customers with deep insight into “network vital signs.” nPulse Networks is headquartered in Reston, Virginia, and also maintains development centers in Charlottesville, VA and in Pisa, Italy.
