NPulse Debuts NetFlow Probe

NPulse Networks LLC has announced a new security-hardened release of its nProbe appliance

RESTON, Va. -- nPulse Networks LLC, a leading integrator of hardware acceleration tools for open-source network security and monitoring applications, has announced a new security-hardened release of its nProbe appliance. nProbe is a highly-tuned, light-weight NetFlow probe, derived from the open-source ntop project managed by Luca Deri ( nPulse is the commercial representative of in North America.

Implemented on nPulse’s Catapult hardware acceleration platform, the entry-level nProbe appliance can capture and inspect over 1.1 million packets per second on its gigabit monitoring port, and generates NetFlow v5/9 or IPFIX records for export to an external network management system or “collector”.

“We have validated nProbe for compatibility with most of the widely-used network security and monitoring solutions”, says Peter Shaw, VP of Marketing for nPulse Networks. “Many such systems use NetFlow data in watching for anomalous or threatening behavior on distributed networks. nProbe can be a cost-effective extension for existing solutions, or a valuable standalone tool in its own right”.
