“As data rates continue to soar, organizations are searching for network visibility solutions that will scale to ensure detection of hidden and emerging threats,” said Jesse Price, CEO and President of NetQuest Corporation. “Our collaboration with ElastiFlow allows security teams to leverage high-fidelity IPFIX flow metadata to ensure complete and immediate visibility for critical network security missions.”
Network security solutions are migrating from sampled flow data to full-fidelity network metadata to combat newer attacks designed to elude sampled monitoring. At the same time network traffic is migrating to 100 Gbps and beyond, placing a heavy processing burden on networking equipment, compute resources and budgets. NetQuest’s OMX3200 and ElastiFlow’s Unified Flow Collector deliver an innovative architecture to extract unsampled IPFIX flow metadata from high-bandwidth networks and present a normalized set of enriched data to security teams for real-time threat detection.
The NetQuest and ElastiFlow joint solution benefits include:
- Persistent monitoring access to network traffic carried over large backbone networks including 100GbE, 10GbE, OTN and SDH networks.
- Unsampled IPFIX flow metadata to ensure 100% of network data is collected
- Enriched network information providing additional context needed to investigate and identify threat conditions
- Normalized flow records enabling use of common open data platforms
“Our integration with a technology leader such as NetQuest further enhances the value of the Unified Flow Collector in the network security ecosystem,” said Rob Cowart, Founder and CEO at ElastiFlow. “The combined best-in-class solution delivers extreme scalability to effortlessly monitor the increasing traffic loads of the largest networks in the world.”
