NEOXPacketFalcon - Portable Packet Capture & Network Forensics Appliance - up to 100Gbps

Ultra-Fast Recording, Indexing, Searching and Analysis
of Network Data in Real-Time!

Networks continue to increase in speed and complexity. Security attacks will also continue to evolve in terms of complexity and stealth.
For optimal and secure IT service quality, IT security teams must have permanent access to detailed analyses of data traffic. Network forensics provides this essential access and insight that security analysts need.

Our PacketFalcon products are powerful recording devices for all types of speeds, enabling IT organizations to analyze, monitor and accurately record traffic without compromise. PacketFalcon allows permanent 24 x 7 access to 1G, 10G, 25G, 40G and 100G network media for detailed analysis, including forensic analysis of past events.

PacketFalcon helps security teams analyze by recording data at key network points while keeping the traffic that can result from this data collection as low as possible. By indexing the data and providing simple and complex filters (Berkeley Packet Filter), PacketFalcon enables security teams to quickly investigate and stop attacks, even when they occur on advanced high-speed networks such as 40G or 100G network topologies.

With NEOXPacketFalcon, the proven LiveAction Deep Packet Inspection technology can be quickly and easily brought even to remote network segments.

With its robust construction and Linux as operating system, either 25 TB, 51 TB or 102 TB disk storage and 1/10/25/40/100G high performance Gigabit Capture Adapter, it is the ideal companion for the mobile network analysis and forensic specialist.
