Solarflare Enhances CSS Data Capture Platform
With an open API, CSS can also be integrated with third-party analytic applications to create customized data retention and analytics solutions.Solarflare, a specialist in application-intelligent networking solutions, announced enhancements to Capture SolarSystem (CSS) to address risk management and compliance issues facing financial institutions. The latest version of CSS allows customers to capture the entire network traffic flow in a searchable form, offering improved visibility and network instrumentation capabilities for regulatory reporting, risk analytics, performance monitoring, threat detection and more. CSS is an open software platform that enables distributed, high performance, pervasive capture of all network nodes, and includes key features such as line rate capture to disk, indexed query of captured data, and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) allowing deployment of data capture solutions across enterprise data centers and other networks. With an open API, CSS also can be integrated with third-party analytic applications to create customized data retention and analytics solutions.
"Our open API allows customers to use 3rd party analytics software or their own in-house tools to analyze the data that is captured by CSS," Solarflare CEO Russell Stern said. "This provides the most flexible and customer-friendly approach to analyzing the captured data. Of course, CSS comes complete with an intuitive GUI interface and indexed query capability and can be used as a fully contained solution for network capture."
