SANTA FE, N.M. -- Packet Analytics, a network security tools company, today launched Net/FSE, the Network Forensic Search Engine. Net/FSE is the first commercial search engine for enterprise network data to focus on security incident response by harnessing the power of NetFlow data. It is designed to exploit the forensic potential of NetFlow data to dig deep into network alerts.
A browser-based workflow tool for security analysts, Net/FSE employs proprietary search technology licensed exclusively from Los Alamos National Laboratory, where it was developed and battle-tested for five years. Net/FSE allows network security analysts to respond rapidly to network alerts and anomalies by analyzing terabytes of NetFlow router data in real-time through a highly scalable search engine. A commonly overlooked network data resource because of its voluminous nature and predominate use in IT engineering operations, NetFlow data can be a powerful source of forensic information for security analysis.
We purchased and deployed Net/FSE at Los Alamos National Bank to give us visibility into our NetFlow router data in addition to our other network data, said David McCullough, Chief Technical Officer for Los Alamos National Bank. Before Net/FSE when we needed to perform a network security investigation it was taking us as much as day to answer one investigative question. Now, were able to answer that same question in a matter of minutes.
