Auckland-based network monitoring company Endace has expanded its Fusion partner program with the opening of a dedicated partner testing lab, in Austin Texas, and the addition of more staff.
Endace operates the EndaceProbe analytics platform that, it says, can host third party network analytics applications from its partners and a wide variety of open-source tools and customers' applications while simultaneously recording a 100 percent accurate network history, enabling fast, accurate detection, investigation and analysis of network security and performance issues.
“Workflow integration allows SecOps, DevOps and NetOps analysts to click on an alert in the analytics tools and go directly to the related packet data, where it can be examined and investigated using EndaceProbe's built-in EndaceVision and EndacePackets,” Endace says.
“The tight connection between alerts and related packet-level evidence enables definitive root cause analysis and rapid, accurate response to security threats and performance issues using a common workflow.”
In July 2017 Endace launched EndaceFabric. It connects multiple EndaceProbe network analytics platforms into a recording fabric that can be centrally managed using Endace’s central management server.
Endace CEO, Stuart Wilson said the Fusion partner program “basically frees SecOps, DevOps and NetOps teams from the traditional model of deploying functions as dedicated hardware appliances [giving] them agility to respond to changing requirements and deploy new capabilities without having to rip-and-replace the underlying hardware layer.
"And, by adding accurate, recorded history of network activity, they can replay historical traffic to hosted analytics tools for powerful, back-in-time analysis – further enhancing their agility."
Endace says its Fusion partners also benefit from its platform approach. “Solutions can be deployed on demand for trials and proof-of-concept projects, which enables partner to quickly demonstrate ability to add value in a customer's existing environment without requiring complex hardware deployments.”
Endace has announced partnerships with a number of vendors in recent months, including BluVector, Cisco, Dynatrace, Idappcom and Plixer and says additional partners will be added in the near future.
The company was founded in New Zealand in 2001 and became US owned in 2013 when it was acquired by Emulex. However it returned to NZ ownership in 2016 through a management buyout.
