Solera Networks First to Achieve Third Party Validation for Big Data Security Intelligence and Analytics

SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--

Solera Networks, the industry's leading Big Data Security Intelligence and Analytics provider, today announced the results of comprehensive hands-on performance testing and benchmarking conducted on its Solera DeepSee platform by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), a leading industry analyst and market research firm. The first of its kind testing validated DeepSee's Big Data Security Intelligence and Analytics capabilities, along with its performance and accuracy claims for enterprise and service provider network deployments.

According to the report, "ESG Lab has confirmed that the DeepSee platform has the performance that's needed to capture, index and analyze real-world network traffic within organizations and enterprises of any size."

Highlights of ESG's test results include:

  • Wire speed fixed packet capture and index-ESG validated that DeepSee can capture and index full packets at a 9.85 gigabits per second (Gbps) line rate.
  • Full fidelity capture, index and deep packet inspection-ESG confirmed that DeepSee can collect, classify and perform deep packet inspection of application-level service provider and enterprise network traffic at 5.35 Gbps and 3.62 Gbps respectively.
  • Big data security analytics and insight with 100 percent accuracy-ESG also validated that the DeepSee platform accurately classified 125 of 125 applications and 25 of 25 different file types.
  • Intuitive threat visibility and intelligence-ESG also evaluated DeepSee's ability to reconstruct e-mails, instant messages, images and files, as well as its integration with industry-standard reputation services.
  • <>Context-aware integration-As part of the evaluation ESG also looked at context-aware integrated workflow with leading security appliances such as an IPS system.

"When it comes to detecting advanced threats, attacks and suspicious network activity, big data security analytics depend upon high-performance processing to accurately and effectively monitor network activity in real time," said Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst at ESG. "In ESG Lab's testing, Solera (News - Alert) DeepSee demonstrated levels of performance and accuracy that are needed to capture, index, classify, and analyze real-world network traffic in the enterprise. For organizations seeking to drive their defense-in-depth strategy to new levels of protection, performance and intelligence with big data security, ESG Lab testing validates that Solera Networks can meet enterprise performance and security requirements."

"ESG's comprehensive testing provides strong validation of the performance and accuracy that Solera DeepSee's big data security and intelligence platform delivers for advanced threat protection," said Ajay Uggirala, director, product and technical marketing, Solera Networks. "Armed with this best-in-class performance, intelligence and analytics, enterprises and service providers can respond more swiftly and decisively to zero-day threats and advanced targeted attacks that threaten their most critical information assets."

Apart from testing Solera DeepSee platform's performance and accuracy capability, ESG also validated DeepSee's ability to deliver situational awareness, cyber threat protection, security incident response, policy compliance and data loss monitoring. According to the report, " [The Solera DeepSee Platform] is like having a high definition video recorder for your network that records every TV show on every channel and stores the recordings for weeks at a time. Solera Networks not only records every packet, flow and file that traverses your network, but also provides a fast and intuitive user interface for real-time and back-in-time security intelligence and analytics."

Solera Networks will present a summary report of ESG's validation testing at booth #2345 at RSA Conference 2013 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
