Savvius Vigil™ Awarded Best Security Hardware 2016
11th Annual Network Products Guide IT World Awards recognizes the value of a dedicated network forensics appliance
WALNUT CREEK, Calif - May 23, 2016 – Savvius, Inc., a leader in packet intelligence solutions, today announced that its network security appliance, Savvius Vigil™, received the Gold award for best security hardware from Network Products Guide at the 11th Annual 2016 IT World Awards®. Savvius Vigil automates the intelligent collection of network traffic, making security alert investigations more efficient and dramatically improving investigations into breaches.
Recognition by Network Products Guide and a panel of industry peers validates the unique value delivered by Savvius Vigil – augmenting existing detection systems to streamline investigations into alerts as they happen and to enhance post-breach forensics with months of critical network packets. Since most cyberattacks are not discovered until long after the original intrusion, intelligent packet capture is required to enable network forensics in breach investigations.
"This Gold award comes just as Savvius releases Vigil 2.0, a major new version of our award-winning security appliance," said Larry Zulch, president and CEO of Savvius. "It is an acknowledgement that enterprises need help with effective incident response, both to keep up with a flood of alerts out of their detection systems and to make preparations that minimize the impact on their business should a breach occur."
Savvius Vigil integrates with enterprises’ existing IDS/IPS security appliances. Sophisticated analytics enable Savvius Vigil to parse alerts and efficiently store network traffic relevant to hundreds of alerts per day at a fraction of the cost and storage requirements of alternative solutions. Each alert automatically triggers analytics that go back to five minutes before the incident and determine which packet-level traffic should be captured and stored. This patent-pending technology – packet intelligence at work – is unique to Vigil.
