Savvius Omnipeek Earns 2017 “Most Innovative Forensics Solution”

We have some exciting news from last week’s RSA Conference. Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), a leading InfoSec publication, announced that Savvius Omnipeek beat out a host of rival products to be named the Most Innovative Forensics Solution of 2017.

Describing the significance of this award, the Editor-in-Chief of Cyber Defense Magazine, Pierluigi Paganini, said, “We’re thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that’s why Savvius has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine. Some of the best InfoSec defenses come from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside of the box.”

Omnipeek, which has an established reputation as a best-in-class network analytics and performance diagnostics solution, dramatically streamlines the process for both network troubleshooting and security investigations. Omnipeek 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, was on hand at Savvius’ RSA booth to receive the award, and said, “We’re seeing significant interest in network forensics as an effective source of truth in security investigations. Savvius is honored to have Omnipeek recognized with an InfoSec Award from this well-respected publication.”
