WALNUT CREEK, Calif – February 2nd, 2016 – Savvius™, Inc., a leader in packet intelligence for network performance management and security investigations, today announced a major upgrade to OmniPeek®, its best-in-class suite of network and application monitoring and analytics software. Version 9.1 of OmniPeek includes a number of new features and performance enhancements designed specifically to offer network managers and engineers more intuitive data visualization and faster time to resolution for network issues.

In OmniPeek 9.1, the popular Compass dashboard is now supported directly by Capture Engine for OmniPeek, the embedded software for all Savvius network appliances. Compass, a Savvius network data visualization platform that continuously analyzes and displays network information over time, quickly guides the user to network data in need of more detailed investigation. With Compass implemented on the Capture Engine, appliance users can correlate and analyze network data directly on the appliance, eliminating the need to transfer data locally for detailed visual analysis.

Other improvements to OmniPeek include the option to deploy a RAID 6 configuration that protects against disk failures, useful for users who require reliable long-term data retention. Significant enhancements in geolocation tagging provide new data visualization regarding the source of network traffic, and allow network engineers to set additional parameters for searches and filters based on the geographic origin of network data, accelerating analysis and reducing overall time to resolution.

“Networks today are the backbone of our data-intensive economy. They must maintain the highest levels of performance and stability to meet user expectations and ensure business success,” says Jay Botelho, director of product management at Savvius. “OmniPeek is the industry’s de facto standard in intelligent packet capture, analytics, forensics, and troubleshooting for networks of any size. For those managing networks, security, time to resolution, and manageability are all hot-button issues. These updates to OmniPeek give users the ability to seamlessly access vital information and solve problems faster.”

OmniPeek 9.1 Key Features:

  • Compass Dashboard (for network forensics) is now supported directly by Capture Engine for OmniPeek, enhancing visualization, compatibility, and data correlation
  • RAID 6 option for superior data protection and failover
  • Improved geolocation tagging and search functionality
  • Enhanced security and access controls
  • Non-admin user access
