New Record Set for Capturing Packets with Savvius WiFi Adapters Simultaneously. Can you Beat it?

Congratulations to Jason Jacklich in support, who has attached 13 wireless USB adapters to his laptop, and is capturing from all of them at the same time!

In the picture below, there are 13 adapters connected to Jason’s laptop. 1 is a mini on the left, directly in the USB port. 2, 3, 4, are connected to a USB hub. 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 are connected to a powered USB hub. 13 is a mini, hidden between 9 and 10.


In the screenshot below, the 13 adapters are listed in the Aggregator Settings Dialog. Each adapter is set to a different channel.

So, there you have it. Beat that. Savvius would love to hear back if anyone has captured on more than 13.

Savvius Earns Two Global Excellence Awards

Savvius continues to receive prestigious industry accolades, earning two honors in the recent 13th Annual 2017 Info Security Product Guide’s Global Excellence Awards®.

Going up against stiff competition, Savvius earned the gold title in the “Innovative Company of the Year” category for companies with security products. This award showcases how rapidly Savvius has been able to parlay its strengths in network troubleshooting and diagnostics, into a leadership position in the network forensics space.

In addition, Savvius Omnipeek was nominated in the “Most Innovative Security Software of the Year” category, where it earned a well-deserved silver award.

Omnipeek, the best-in-class network analytics and performance diagnostics solution, dramatically streamlines the process of network troubleshooting and forensics. It now gives users the ability to manage packet analysis through a single, streamlined user interface that includes security alerts from popular open-source IDS platforms such as Snort and Suricata. By highlighting packet data corresponding to these alerts, Omnipeek provides immediate, detailed analysis of suspected breaches. Omnipeek is also able to open multiple large capture files simultaneously by filtering the packet files before they are loaded and analyzed. This greatly reduces file size and helps to speed up response times.

Julie Criscenti Heck, the Head of Marketing at Savvius, commented on the awards, saying, “It’s rewarding to see that our depth of hands-on experience in the network space is finding such critical success in the security space, too. So many of our customers love our network diagnostics tools, like Omnipliance and Omnipeek, and these awards validate our belief that access to packet data is at the heart of resolving both network and security issues.”
