SourcefireCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. /eNewsChannels/ — nPulse Technologies and Sourcefire(R), the leader in intelligent cybersecurity solutions, today announced a technology integration partnership that provides customers with extended visibility into zero day threats and new signatures. nPulse has connected its Pivot2PCAP security monitoring API directly with Sourcefire’s Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention Systems (NGIPS) technology, which allows users to accelerate incident response on current events and enables retrospective analysis on historical traffic.

nPulse’s Pivot2PCAP API provides this insight through simple drill-down access to stored flow and packet information. It is implemented on nPulse’s HammerHead platform, which can capture, index, and analyze network traffic at speeds up to 20Gbps.

“Pivot2PCAP is a powerful query language, which allows customers to ‘pivot’ from the meta-data of an alert down to the real data contained in the relevant traffic stream,” explained Randy Caldejon, nPulse’s CTO. “This means that analysts can immediately focus on identifying and addressing the root cause, rather than having to first spend hours manually searching through massive data stores to find the right packets.”

“This partnership is part of our continued commitment to the Sourcefire Technology Partnership (STP) ecosystem,” said Douglas Hurd, director of technical alliances for Sourcefire. “This integration – which further extends the visibility provided by our NGIPS technologies – gives users one-click access to additional extra-IPS intelligence for deeper visibility into the nature of threats.”
