03 Mar 2016 RSA 2016: Cyber defence, taking back control

The message is clear, we need boots on the ground and we need to equip them with proper tools to defend themselves. Amit Yoran (RSA Chairman) said in his Keynote speech on Tuesday that we are no longer surprised by attacks, you could argue that we almost expect them to happen because we know our defences are not fit for purpose. However, this year’s conference is not about the doom and gloom surrounding the inadequacies of the Cyber security industry. The show this year gives critical focus to the advancements and achievements we have made to counter attacks and protect our networks, the battle drums has been sounded. Read more

22 Jan 2016 Flocon 2016: In Review

The mandate of Flocon 2016 was to provide a forum for large-scale network flow analytics and showcase next-generation analytic techniques. As sponsors of the event and developer of the recently launched Telesoft 100G IPFIX Probe, which generates unsampled flow statistics on traffic up to 100Gbit/s, and as a company supplying ultra-speed cyber defense and intelligence technology we felt we could contribute significantly to the conversation.

14 Jan 2016 Building cost effective 40Gbps IDS in to commodity servers

Many cyber intelligence and security solutions have failed to keep up with data growth and network speeds, particularly inside the network where rates can be significantly higher than at the border. Device stacking is one solution, but this complicates network architecture and management, increases points of failure, and increases overall CAPEX and OPEX. Read more

24 Sep 2015 Extending IDS and IPS Throughput Capacity

The load on Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS) is increasing as data rates and the number of possible threats continue to rise. When these security devices become saturated, they drop packets. The more packets that get dropped the greater the statistical likelihood that one will contain a potential threat that will infiltrate your network and cause harm. Read more
