Solera Networks Announces Open Source License for DataEcho Web Forensics Software
Windows application reconstructs web and email activity for compliance and security management
Lindon, Utah - December 15, 2006 – Solera Networks, Inc., the technology leader in network packet record and playback appliances, today announced that source code for DataEcho, a web session reconstruction application, will be made available under the GNU General Public License. The company has established a community website at http://sourceforge.net/projects/data-echo. Source code and Windows installers are available for download now.
DataEcho reconstructs historical web browsing and email traffic from captured network packets, for monitoring insider security threats and policy compliance. It is a useful adjunct to network protocol analyzers such as Sniffer™ or WireShark.
“Releasing this application under the GPL allows Solera Networks to focus on system level advances in network packet capture and storage, our core competencies. Applications such as DataEcho demonstrate why we believe packet recording and playback capability is such a critical component of every data center’s infrastructure”, said Terry Haas, President and CEO of Solera Networks. “We look forward to future enhancements of DataEcho. “
Loris Degioanni, Co-Founder and CTO of CACE Technologies said “I'm impressed by DataEcho’s capabilities and its intuitiveness. Its ability to reconstruct TCP sessions and organize them in a nice user interface makes it useful in a number of different situations. DataEcho will be a great addition to CACE Technologies' Network Toolkit.”
