The Most Powerful, Comprehensive Network Analyzer Anywhere

Network Analysis Software - Omnipeek OmniPeek Enterprise is Savvius’s flagship network analyzer. It combines all Savvius network analysis features in a single product. It’s both a stand-alone network analyzer for local captures and a console for analyzing traffic collected from multiple interfaces on multiple capture engines and Omnipliances. It’s an award-winning product that provides rich analytics and intuitive workflows for understanding networks and resolving problems faster than ever before.

Network Monitoring Appliance - Savvius Insight Savvius Insight is the newest and smallest addition to the Omnipliance family of network monitoring appliances. Savvius Insight has no moving parts, connects inline to the network with two bypass ports, and has three extra ports for span port captures.
With the advanced expert system and extensive array of other visual and interactive analysis features built into Savvius Insight, network professionals, IT consultants, and Splunk administrators are armed with the same caliber of tools for monitoring smaller networks that they are used to having for the datacenter with Omnipliances. And like the larger Omnipliances, Savvius Insight performs all capture and analysis locally, and does not require the packets be sent over the network. Savvius Insight also enhances Omnipliance deployments by providing more capture points to take advantage of the built-in Multi-Segment Analysis features of the Omnipliance.

Long-Term Packet Storage - Savvius Vigil Savvius Vigil is the first network appliance able to intelligently store months of packet-level information to enhance security investigations. With Savvius Vigil, packets related to a breach can be examined weeks or months after the incident occurs. This information is often vital to a full understanding of the threat.

Savvius Vigil integrates with your existing SIEM’s IDS/IPS capabilities to trigger storage of network packets. Savvius Vigil integrates events from multiple sources, including network conversations with specified IP addresses. Traffic between relevant nodes is captured before and after the triggered events. Optionally, all related traffic to and from an event’s IP addresses is captured as well.
