We’re back from the Interop 2015 Conference in Las Vegas, which took place from May 2-6 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, and was attended by about 12,000 people. There was a lot to talk about at the new and larger Savvius booth, which was kept busy with enlightening demos and lively discussions. The new company name, colors, and branding were also on display, and well received by our existing customer base, and new customers interested in our entry into the security market.

Just before the conference, we announced OmniPeek 9.0, the latest release of our award-winning network analysis software. OmniPeek 9.0 includes new features such as Application Awareness, which enabled engineers to identify the applications and even social media services associated with network conversations. Our goal with OmniPeek is to provide the most useful and intuitive solution available anywhere for analyzing networks, and Application Awareness makes OmniPeek even more powerful by enabling engineers to instantly see Layer 7 analytics along with the software’s many other rich features.

OmniPeek wasn’t the only Savvius product getting attention. Omnipliance WiFi, our unique solution for full-speed 802.11ac WLANs, was nominated as a Finalist for Best of Show at Interop. The Omnipliance WiFi is unique because it increases the ROI of existing AP infrastructures that capture and aggregate wireless traffic through the wired network to a centralized location, where the traffic and analysis can be viewed remotely using OmniPeek.

We also received an official plaque from Miercom, the independent testing firm, for Omnipliance TL’s industry-leading performance in loss-less data capture and reliable analysis for network forensics. “With a capture-to-disk rate of 25.33 Gbps and zero packet loss with 40G networks, the Omnipliance TL’s superior performance is well-suited for use in network forensic analysis,” commented Miercom CEO Robert Smithers on the occasion of Omnipliance TL’s performance certification last year.

We were pleased to introduce Interop attendees to Savvius Vigil, our newest network forensics solution and the industry’s only network appliance capable of storing weeks or months of packet-level data for investigating security breaches. We had launched Savvius Vigil the previous week at the RSA Conference. Attendees at Interop found it impressive, as well.

Our next big show is Cisco Live in San Diego on June 7th. We’ll be exhibiting in Booth #2924.

See you then!
