Solera Intros DeepSee Search Engine

Solera (News - Alert) Networks has announced the beta version of Solera DeepSee has been releases to l allow IT and business executives to search, locate and reconstruct network traffic in an intuitive Web-like search format.

DeepSee will be deployed along with Solera’s DS appliances offering network visibility for virtual as well as physical networks employing software-based packet capture and stream-to-storage technology even on the fastest 10 Gbps networks. 

“Network security has become a chief concern for more than just the IT staff. It is now a bottom-line business concern, whether the threat is internal or external to the organization,” said Steve Shillingford, CEO of Solera Networks.

Shillingford noted that organizations are facing evolving compliance mandates requiring them to save more data, including data-in-motion. With a ‘Google (News - Alert)-like’ interface, DeepSee provides quick and easy search capabilities to discover and view artifacts network traffic.

These could include emails, key documents, IM dialogues, file transfers, VoIP calls or any other packet-based network communication.

Solera DeepSee offers several advantages to organizations like executing Web-style queries and searching by keywords, user, type of traffic, attachment and IP or MAC address, and more.
DeepSee helps realize visibility into key network traffic for legal, HR and business professionals who may not have networking expertise.

Robert Ayoub, Industry Manager, Network Security for Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) said, "With the increasing growth in network traffic and network speeds, solutions that help organizations intuitively search through the mass of data to get to the root cause of a network problem, security breach or policy violation will be in high demand Full network visibility is key to addressing network security issues.”

The DeepSee interface is designed for users of any technical level to retrieve the information they need. Results are displayed in an easy to understand formant and can then be selected by users and displayed in their original formats. For example, IM messages are converted to IM conversations, PDFs are reconstructed as PDFs and emails as emails.

Solera technology allows captured traffic to be written on a scalable disk-based cache system and presented in PCAP formats as a virtual network interface or as regenerated network traffic. Applications can then perform their analysis with complete visibility into all network traffic without affecting the production network’s performance. Solera will be demonstrating DeepSee at Interop (News - Alert) underway in Las Vegas.
