RESTON, Va. -- nPulse Networks LLC, a leading integrator of hardware acceleration and open-source tools for network security and monitoring applications, is contributing a new Linux distribution to the public domain.

The announcement was made at the recent ISS World Conference in Washington, DC by Randy Caldejon, nPulse’s President. The new Catapulta distro is the outcome of an internal research project at the company to determine whether a practical wire-speed, gigabit packet capture platform could be built from industry-standard server components for under $4,000.

“For our security, monitoring and intercept customers, 100% visibility of network traffic is critical”, said Caldejon, “but we discovered that none of the current Linux distributions is specifically tuned for packet capture. To reach our goal, we had to build Catapulta. Now we plan to make it available for others to use and extend”.
