NextGen version 9.0 is not a simple evolution of a packet-sniffing technology, but a true revolution in automating network intelligence at the application layer and real-time network forensics.
"In 2009, we continued to see an alarming increase in the number of serious data breaches in public and private organizations due to advanced threats and the inability of security teams to detect complex application-based attacks using current tools and techniques," said Richard Stiennon, Chief Research Analyst, IT-Harvest. "With NextGen version 9.0, NetWitness has taken the nascent market of network forensics and real-time threat intelligence to a whole new level, providing deeper analytics and broader platform extensibility, and giving security teams the capabilities they need to reduce the risk exposure window."
The new features offered in version 9.0 include:
"Version 9.0 of NextGen is a direct result of working hand in glove with our extensive customer community in helping them identify and address advanced threats," said Tim Belcher, Chief Technology Officer at NetWitness. "Once again we have pushed the envelope of what is possible well beyond what others are even contemplating."
