Endace spins off from Emulex in management-led buyout
Announces new network recorder with unprecedented storage capacity to address burgeoning demand for effective data breach analysis.
Endace, a world leader in high-speed network monitoring and recording technology, has once again become a wholly New Zealand owned and operated company following a management-led buy out from its parent company, Emulex Corp.
Founded in 2001, and acquired by Emulex Corp. in 2013, Endace has created a global reputation for its packet-capture and network recording technology used to support security and network management applications in some of the world largest and most sophisticated enterprise, government, financial and service provider networks. The buy-out allows Endace to maintain its focus on core technologies while continuing a culture of innovation. The company created the packet capture category more than a decade ago, launched the world’s first network recording appliance and leads the market in packet capture performance and accuracy.
Stuart Wilson, Endace’s CEO, has been with the company for more than a decade and led the team tasked with returning the company back to private ownership.
“Operating as an independent company again allows us to continue to deliver innovative solutions to our customers under the Endace brand they’ve known and trusted for more than 15 years,” says Wilson.
“We still have the same team of great people and we are all committed to continuing to lead our market.”
Demand for Endace’s technology is accelerating globally with some very large customer installations in government and commercial sectors already this year. Wilson attributes this in part to an increase in publicity surrounding high profile data breaches being reported by the media.
“This publicity has forced organisations to look at whether they’re adequately prepared to deal with security breaches. When they do, they’re realising a detailed history of network traffic is fundamental to enabling forensic analysts to investigate, quantify and respond to a breach effectively. That means being able to capture, store and analyse network traffic accurately even on high-speed, heavily loaded networks, and that’s where Endace excels,” he says.
Endace is continuing to invest heavily in R&D. The company has a range of new products launching over the coming weeks, including the new 9000 Series EndaceProbe™ Network Recorder. With up to 192TB of storage and 20Gbps sustained recording to disk, the new EndaceProbe sets new industry standards for capacity. It is designed to allow customers to extend the network history available for effective forensic investigation in the event of a data breach.
For more than 15 years, Endace has provided high-speed, network recording and visibility solutions to monitor and protect some of the world’s largest, most complex networks. Customers include global banks, telcos and service providers, media and broadcast companies, health organisations, retailers, e-commerce and web giants, governments and large enterprises.
Customers choose Endace technology because it can monitor and capture network traffic with 100 percent accuracy regardless of network speeds or loads, it can scale the meet the needs of the fastest networks and it is built on an open architecture that enables integration with a wide variety of custom, open source and commercial solutions.
