Auckland-based Endace is expanding its Fusion channel program by opening a partner testing lab and increasing its partner team to handle continued growth.
The developer of network probe and high-speed recording, playback and analytics of network traffic has already inked partnerships with vendors including BluVector, Cisco, Dynatrace, Idappcom and Plixer, with additional partner announcements in the pipeline.
"The Endace Fusion partner program basically frees SecOps, DevOps and NetOps teams from the traditional model of deploying functions as dedicated hardware appliances," said Stuart Wilson, CEO and major shareholder of Endace.
"It gives them agility to respond to changing requirements and deploy new capabilities without having to rip-and-replace the underlying hardware layer."
By adding accurate, recorded history of network activity, he said, they can replay historical traffic to hosted analytics tools for analysis.
Endace Fusion partners also benefit from the open common platform approach. Solutions can be deployed on demand at the new partner lab, based in Austin, Texas, for trials and proof-of-concept projects.
This enables partners to quickly demonstrate the ability to add value in a customer’s existing environment without complex hardware deployments, the company said.
By deploying their chosen analytics solutions on the, customers can consolidate hardware, reduce cost and slash deployment time because the new capabilities can be deployed in software, on demand, without the need for new hardware.
The platform combines accurate, high-speed packet capture with the ability to host security and performance analytics solutions from Endace’s partners as well as a wide variety of open-source tools and customer applications.
Workflow integration allows SecOps, DevOps and NetOps analysts to click on an alert in the analytics tools and go directly to the related packet data where it can be examined and investigated for definitive root cause analysis and rapid, accurate response to security and performance issues.
Endace also has a scalability lab in Te Rapa, Hamilton.
