Solera to Counter Network Attacks with Integrated HP ArcSight ESM

This threat and risk management platform provides visibility into network attacks, breaches and also protects organizations from internal fraud and theft. It enables security professionals to dig deep into the network and uniquely understand the nature of the breach.

ArcSight ESM differs from its counterparts in that it can model not only IP addresses and network zones but also users, employees, customers for powerful analysis. Administrators and incident responders can now have the deepest visibility into the activities, applications, and persons on their network.

A Cyber Security Analyst at a major US government agency claimed to rely on HP ArcSight (News - Alert) ESM to make sense of countless network events related to a breach and noted that it was often the starting point in the investigation.

Commenting on Solera Networks , the analyst said, “Having the ability to pivot directly from the event into the full packet-level record on the Solera DS forensics appliance is huge. With Solera Networks we can respond with pinpoint accuracy."

The award-winning Solera DS network forensics appliances help deliver full packet capture, index and replay all network traffic before, during and after the security event and works fast to minimize the extent of breach.

"Our strategy has always been to support integrations with best-of-breed network security solutions," said Steve Shillingford, President and CEO of Solera Networks, in a statement.

TMCnet reported that Solera Networks announced a partnership with Netronome (News - Alert), the well known network flow processing company, to provide SSL decryption solutions to its portfolio.
