PacketFalcon Mini - Portable & Compact Packet Capturing & Network Forensics Appliance

Ultra-fast recording, indexing, search & analysis
of network data in real time!

The speed of networks and their complexity continue to increase. And attacks on network infrastructure will also evolve in terms of complexity and stealth.

For optimal and secure IT service quality, IT security teams must therefore have permanent access to detailed analyses of data traffic. Network forensics provides this essential access and insight that security analysts need.

PacketFalcon Mini - Portable and compact

Our PacketFalcon products are powerful recorders for all types of network speeds, enabling IT organisations to analyse, monitor and accurately record traffic without compromise. The PacketFalcon Mini provides permanent 24 x 7 access to 1G, 10G and 25G networks for detailed analysis, including forensic analysis of past events.

PacketFalcon helps security teams analyse by recording data at key network points while minimising the traffic this data collection can generate. By indexing the data and providing simple and complex filters (Berkeley Packet Filter), PacketFalcon enables security teams to quickly investigate and thus stop attacks.

Linux is used as the operating system and LiveAction’s award-winning network forensics software LiveWire is used for analysis and evaluation. This makes it possible to analyse network traffic across locations via remote access and quickly find errors, which drastically reduces MTTR time.

With its robust and compact design, a choice of 8TB or 16TB disk storage and a 1G or 1G/10G/25G high performance Gigabit capture adapter, it is the ideal companion for the mobile network analysis and forensics specialist.

Pre-Installed Software and Hardware

The NEOXPacketFalcon Mini comes with a combination of leading software and hardware solutions and includes the following components, among others:

  • Software: LiveWire
    • Lossless capture and recording of 1G, 10G and 25G network traffic while ensuring full data integrity.
    • Powerful data preparation tools that allow IT technicians to focus on specific time periods and types of traffic.
    • Built-in analytics, including expert analysis and critical network metrics, such as top talkers and top logs, all of which help to accelerate the investigation of any attacks.
    • Network data is hardware timestamped on arrival with nanosecond accuracy. GPS, PPS, PTP and other external time sources are supported.
