Savvius Now Shipping Savvius Vigil Security Appliance

Savvius Vigil Availability Brings Industry-Leading Visibility to Security Breach Forensics

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., July 14, 2015 – Savvius, a leader in packet-enabled network and security forensics solutions, announced today that Savvius Vigil, the industry’s first security appliance capable of automatically storing months of network packet data to enhance data breach investigations, is now shipping. Savvius Vigil offers long-term packet visibility to security forensic investigations, providing information vital to analyzing and understanding cyber threats.

"Security teams are increasingly turning to packet data to effectively investigate security incidents. Before Savvius Vigil, security incident investigators had limited access to vital information like how the breach was implemented, who was affected and what assets were compromised," says Vincent Sartor, director of engineering at Savvius. "Savvius Vigil fills this gap by offering visibility into packets related to a breach weeks or months after the incident occurs, improving the investigative process and providing insight to help prevent future incidents."

The Savvius Vigil security appliance has both 1G and 10G interfaces and stores more than 50 terabytes of data for security investigations. Savvius Vigil automatically records and stores the network packet environment of hundreds of suspicious security events each day. Like never before, security teams are able to retrieve and analyze information about these stored events, whether for immediate investigation or long after the event occurred, offering unparalleled visibility into network activity occurring at the time of the breach.

Savvius Vigil is available now through Savvius’s direct sales force and Savvius Authorized Resellers.
