After successful partnerships with the likes of Cisco, Dynatrace and Plixer, Kiwi-based global firm Endace is expanding its Fusion Partner program and launching a new Partner Lab in the United States.
The company's new Partner Lab will be based in Austin, Texas and will allow joint solution demonstrations as well as integration testing of partner applications on the EndaceProbe Analytics Platform.
The platform enables end users to consolidate hardware to reduce cost and time to deployment for new analytics solutions.
“New capabilities can be deployed in software, on demand, without the need for new hardware. The success of the Fusion program has been driven by enthusiastic support, by both customers and vendor partners, for Endace's open, common platform approach to network security and performance analytics,” the company explains in a statement.
Endace is also increasing its partner team to handle continued growth in its Fusion Partner program after signing up a number of new vendors in recent months, with more partner announcements to come.
“The Endace Fusion Partner Program basically frees SecOps, DevOps and NetOps teams from the traditional model of deploying functions as dedicated hardware appliances. It gives them agility to respond to changing requirements and deploy new capabilities without having to rip-and-replace the underlying hardware layer,” comments Endace CEO Stuart Wilson.
“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 the open common 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.
“The EndaceProbe Analytics Platform combines 100% accurate, high-speed packet capture with the ability to host security and performance analytics solutions from Endace's Fusion Partners and a wide variety of open source tools and customers' applications.
“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. 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.
Endace provides high-speed network recording, playback and analytics hosting. It is based in Auckland and has offices throughout the world.
