Solera Networks Announces Partnership With Netronome For SSL Decryption

Netronome SSL Inspector decrypts traffic that is then delivered to Solera DS Appliances

Nashville, Tennessee – GFIRST Conference – August 10, 2011 – Solera Networks, the leading Network Forensics and Security Analytics platform provider, today announced a partnership with Netronome, the leading network flow processing company, to provide SSL decryption solutions to its portfolio. Netronome SSL Inspector decrypts traffic that is then delivered to Solera DS Appliances for complete capture, classification, storage and reconstruction of any network security event.

“We’re seeing increased use of encryption to mask the true nature of malicious traffic,” said Steve Shillingford, President and CEO of Solera Networks. “To effectively respond to these scenarios, you must know how the attacker got in, what they saw, what they took, and what they left behind. Our partnership with Netronome now insures that even encrypted traffic is available for inspection during this effort.”

Like a camera for the network, Solera DS Appliances classify, index, and store every bit of data that crosses the network, supporting today’s fastest networks up to 10Gbps, physical or virtual. These award-winning appliances:

Provide full visibility into any network activity or security event

Arm security professionals to quickly discover attacks before they become catastrophic

Deliver irrefutable evidence of the depth and scope of an attack

Speed up incident investigations and root cause analysis

Deter acceptable use violations with full view and replay of user’s network activity

“One of the top questions we get from customers is how they can gain visibility into what is happening within their encrypted traffic,” said Mike Simon, President SNR Systems, a major supplier of secure telecommunications systems to the US Federal Government. “By combining the Netronome SSL Solution with Solera Networks DS Appliances, we give the customer confidence that they are truly seeing everything happening on the network and have the historical record that is critical to taking appropriate action.”

The Netronome SSL Inspector appliance can be seamlessly deployed alongside existing security appliances in networks ranging from 100Mbps to 10Gbps. The SSL Inspector provides policy-driven access to the contents of encrypted communications. This increases the protection provided by a wide range of security appliances, such as intrusion, extrusion, and forensics solutions. As a fully transparent proxy, the SSL Inspector protects the investment in existing security appliances while mitigating costly changes to the network topology or client re-configuration.

“Netronome is excited to work with Solera Networks and their partners,” said Jarrod Siket, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Netronome. “Enhancing Solera Networks’ network analytics solution with Netronome’s flow processing based SSL Inspection solution to examine encrypted communication now meets the most demanding requirements to see, replay, and reconstruct all network traffic to ensure security on critical networks.”
