Effective network and security operations start with simply and cost effectively capturing many months of full data packets, without this forensic investigation it is impossible and the network security risks are substantial. Finding the needle in the petabytes haystack in seconds is vital, which requires effectively indexing data in near real-time during capture.
“Cybercrime is the greatest
threat to every company
in the world”
Ginni Rometti. CEO IBM
We’re spending big on cybersecurity, but is it working? New attacks come daily and corporate reputations and shareholder value disappear overnight. The fact is today’s cybersecurity solutions aren’t working. SentryWire is the full packet capture tool that could be the missing link.
The missing link in
your security operations
Cyberattacks are doubling each year. Fraud and security professionals are struggling to keep pace and many breaches initially go undetected. Regulation density and financial ramifications for non-compliance are increasing, just look at the EU GDPR and the EU NIS directives. The fact is over 50% of the world’s organizations face scrutiny and reputational damage after a security breach, many don’t have the right network security monitoring or forensics in place.
The question is no longer if an organization will be affected but when they will be affected. The bigger question is how effective and timely the response will be? This comes down to understanding, preparedness and tooling.
The SentryWire full packet capture and analytics platform is the tool that’s missing in the cybersecurity toolbox.
- Lossless network-wide data packet capture allows organizations to store and index months of network data cost effectively
- Rapid query and retrieval, allows operators to search, retrieve and if needed replay critical data within seconds – accelerating network forensics
- Open API based integration, allowing integration with a wide range of network security analysis and network performance monitoring tools
SentryWire use cases
Network packet capture
Incident response times are critical. Rapid troubleshooting dictates monitoring security and network and application performance in near real-time. But that’s the challenge. The need is to collect massive data packets - a full recording of what transpired - and then interrogate them fast. It demands a new type of packet capture tool.
Forensically investigating a breach is key to understanding how the attacker penetrated, the affected systems and the damage. A full network traffic recording provides the key to deep and fast network forensics: an authoritative data source and the right evidence. Without this organizations will be financially and reputationally exposed to regulations like GDPR and NIS
SIM and SIEM integration
Security Information Management (SIM) and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools are becoming more commonplace in managing alerts and analyzing events. But often the information the tools collect is not definitive and all too frequently analysts have to reconstruct the event to recognize what occurred and model the potential impact.
Threat detection and blocking
On average new threat signatures are published with a 180+ delay and zero-day vulnerabilities with even more delay. The capability to access months of historical network data immediately is essential to understanding if the organization is affected by these threats, to provide the full evidence to support a forensic investigation, and, to ensure an effective response.
Detecting unlogged activity, data exfiltration, phishing preparation and malware infiltration are creating exponential challenges. Organizations must tune Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) to be more effective in reducing the number of false positives. It starts by providing security analysts with access to large volumes of historical network data for effective investigation.
The threat landscape is exploding and ransomware is increasingly sophisticated. It’s a perfect storm. An ability to take a threat signature and query months of historical data is essential for security operations teams to quickly and effectively detect new threats, assess their scope and design effective responses.

Partners and open API
Integrating SentryWire: partners and open API
SentryWire partners a broad range of leading vendors in threat analysis, network forensics and security analysis, and network application and performance management. It means a wide range of ready to use integration options. Your platform not listed? No problem, SentryWire has an open API.
Support security and network operations
Rapid access to full packet capture data is critical to responding effectively to a security or a network or application performance incident. Full visibility allows faster network forensics: to understand, determine and implement the right, rapid response. Recordings match your data against newly published breaches and provide full evidence so you can understand what has happened, what data and systems are affected and how to most effectively respond.
Cybersecurity isn’t working. It’s time for a new solution and it starts with old thinking
We’re spending big on cybersecurity, but is it working? New attacks come daily and corporate reputations and shareholder value disappear overnight. The fact is cybersecurity spend isn’t delivering the return. What’s the answer? Don’t look to the future, reimagine the past, starting with network packet capture.
