packet captureCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. /eNewsChannels/ — nPulse Technologies announced today that the company has joined the HP ArcSight Technology Alliance Partner Program as a Gold partner and has received HP ArcSight Action Connector certification. As part of the certification, nPulse Technologies demonstrated interoperability between nPulse’s Pivot2Pcap technology and the HP Security Intelligence and Risk Management (SIRM) platform.

Using the HP ArcSight Action Connector, nPulse’s trusted full packet-level capture and search capability has been tested and certified by HP and is now available to HP and nPulse customers. The nPulse HammerHead platform and full function Pivot2Pcap API allows easy access for third party applications to store flow and packet information. The HammerHead platform can capture and store network traffic at speeds up to 20Gbps.

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) applications generate alerts when anomalous or threatening behavior is correlated from security events. These alerts provide a meta-data description of the traffic that caused the alert, including parameters such as IP addresses, time, and protocol information. However, identifying and resolving the root cause of the alert usually requires deeper insight into the specific traffic behind the event.

Following integration via the Pivot2Pcap API, HP ArcSight users can now drill down to individual packet contents with a simple right-click option within the HP ArcSight Console, eliminating the need to leave the application interface.

“nPulse is excited to join the HP ArcSight Technology Alliance Partner Program,” said Randy Caldejon, nPulse’s CTO. “We built our Pivot2Pcap API to allow quick access to packet data for network security analysts and we are pleased to have HP as a partner take advantage of that capability leveraging the HP ArcSight Action Connector.”

“The demand from organizations for reduced time to resolution and improved operational efficiency around security events continues to grow,” said Buck Watia, director, Business Development, Enterprise Security Products, HP. “This interoperability with nPulse HammerHead’s packet capture and replay capabilities creates a powerful solution while complementing the overall HP Enterprise Security Products ecosystem.”
