Solera Networks captures and stores every byte that crosses the network. It works with your best-of-breed security alerting tools, and gives you the ability to go back in time to see the full context and determine the root cause of the attack – in order to close the exposure, see exactly what was leaked, and stop advanced persistent threats in their early stages. Its unique award-winning patented technology has been proven for years in federal agencies and enterprise accounts. We use Solera ourselves in our Forensics and Electronic Discovery Services.
The core of Solera OS is the DS File System (DSFS), a proprietary system optimized for high-speed network packet capture, storage, and playback. Among its many benefits, DSFS implements proprietary disk management, a virtual file system (VFS), management of capture on multiple interfaces, and services for regenerating packets to external network segments.
This latest installment of Solera Networks’ patented capture technology includes a highly efficient compression that increases the amount of data that can be stored in the same physical space by a factor of 10 to 1. Solera DB also indexes every packet in a high performance database to allow quick retrieval, while the new architecture allows storage for rich and detailed Application Classification and Description data.
Solera OS 5 is the revolutionary update to Solera Networks’ award-winning Network Forensics Platform. With the Virtual Appliance, you can turn any server into a high-performing network forensics appliance and use the integrated DeepSee Suite of applications to analyze, search, and reconstruct any network security event. The Virtual Appliance also includes all of the advanced capabilities of dedicated Solera DS network forensics appliances.
The Solera DS 5200 is the high-performance network forensics solution for organizations that demand the performance of complete capture at speeds up to 10Gbps coupled with the large onboard storage capacity of 16TB. In addition, Solera Networks offers the only network forensics appliance available that can sustain complete packet capture and indexing at the speeds of today’s fastest enterprise networks.Powered by Solera OS 5, the Solera DS 5200 appliance creates a complete indexed, classified, and searchable record of network traffic (header and payload, layer 2-7) and allows analysis through instant reports, search, and reconstruction of all network traffic, using the integrated DeepSee Applications. This combination of detailed analysis significantly reduces incident response time and provides complete situational awareness.
Ideal for mid-to large-sized organizations that need active network traffic capture at speeds up to 5Gbps, the Solera DS 3200 is a complete network forensics appliance with all the features of the DS 5200. The DS 3200 also offers organizations 12TB of onboard storage to ensure lossless traffic capture and storage —instantaneously exposing any specific network event to make even the most sophisticated and targeted network attacks plainly visible. The Solera DS 3200 also comes fully equipped with Solera OS 5 and the DeepSee Applications, allowing both seasoned security professionals and business executives to analyze all network data traffic through repots, searches, and complete network traffic reconstruction.
The Solera DS 1200 is a network forensics appliance designed to work on its own in smaller environments or in conjunction with any other Solera DS Appliance. With capture speeds up to 2Gbps and onboard storage capacity of 3TB, it is a perfect fit for smaller companies or remote satellite offices that need the security, tracking, and management of a dedicated network forensics appliance.
For organizations requiring solutions that can support up to petabytes of captured network traffic, the Solera DS H200 is a 2U appliance that offers the perfect network forensics solution. The DS H200 offers organizations expandability and scalability in a network forensics appliance that also integrates with an external storage system. In addition, the appliance features capture rates of 5Gbps sustained and 10Gbps peak, and up to 200TB of storage using Solera DS Storage or petabytes of storage when connecting multiple DS H200 appliances together with a DS C200 Centralized Management appliance.
Solera DS Storage appliances connect to the Solera DS H200 network forensics appliance to function as data storage units for additional capacity. Each 2U DS Storage appliance includes 20TB of usable capture capacity in a 2u form factor. Up to 10 DS Storage appliances can be connected to a single DS H200, giving the system up to 200TB of capture capacity. This scalable network forensics solution offers powerful flexibility to meet network growth and the increasing need for swift, intelligent incident response.
The Solera DS C200 provides centralized management for organizations who have deployed multiple Solera DS forensics appliances throughout their distributed environment, delivering aggregated DeepSee reporting and management across the enterprise, both physical and virtual. With centralization of analysis and management functions, security professionals can optimize resources and significantly reduce their time to locate the true source and scope of a security event.
