WALNUT CREEK, Calif., April 28, 2015 – Savvius, the leader in packet-level network forensics, today announced a new release of the company's OmniPeek software suite to be available next month. All versions of OmniPeek 9.0 add a number of new capabilities including improved application awareness, geographical identification of network nodes, and significant updates to protocol decodes. The OmniPeek 9.0 capture engine running on an Omnipliance now supports PTP packet time synchronization and enhanced analytics performance.

OmniPeek 9.0 features application awareness built on Deep Packet Inspection technology licensed from Procera Networks. OmniPeek 9.0 includes an instance of Procera's Network Application Visibility Library to power a new application dashboard and provide real-time, layer 7 classification of network packets to rapidly identify mobile, social network, file sharing, and web applications.

OmniPeek 9.0's intuitive application dashboard goes beyond simply displaying ports and protocols, instead providing network professionals a clear understanding of applications running on the network. Both summary and per-application statistics are visible during real-time packet analysis or forensically in an application-centric view.
