NextComputing Unveils Site Dedicated To New Packet Capture Solution

NASHUA, NH – NextComputing has unveiled its new Website, which is entirely dedicated to the packet capture needs of its clients. is a new destination for solutions that detect, analyze, and mitigate network issues and threats to data.
“Free Your Data” is the slogan for Packet Continuum, NextComputing’s open, massively scalable packet capture solution. Packet Continuum frees users from the constraints associated with specialized, closed-system appliances that only let them use a very specific set of apps and hardware. Users can choose the tools they want to use in conjunction with Packet Continuum, making it flexible, customizable, and completely targeted for the task at hand.

Today's organizations can no longer rely on prevention alone. Within the Cyber Security industry, the trend is moving towards quickly detecting an intrusion once it reaches the network, analyzing any damage it has done, and stopping or reversing it before it has a chance to deeply penetrate the data. Proper incident response results in minimizing further risk and subsequent damage. A sound security plan must include the kind of continuous monitoring, detection and mitigation that Packet Continuum provides.

But Packet Continuum isn’t just about Cyber Security. At its core, it is a very fast, flexible packet capture tool that can have several uses. Network performance monitoring, lawful intercept, incident response workflow, and data exfiltration are just a few other applications Packet Continuum is ideally suited for. Visit our use-case pages for OEMs and End Users to learn about a variety of possible applications.

Key Features of Packet Continuum include:

Lossless packet capture with deterministic performance
Scalable, lightweight, MapReduce cluster architecture
Extended forensic timeline and storage features
Intuitive web GUI and RESTful interface
Real-time packet analytics
User-defined and dynamic critical IOC alerts
Multiple platforms and custom configurations

Not many companies are producing software that is robust enough, and affordable enough, to provide a competent level of security, intertwined with a host of other analytical uses. NextComputing recognizes this need, and fills it with Packet Continuum.

Companies of any size can achieve deep visibility into network problems while continuing to use familiar tools. Likewise, OEMs developing their own monitoring solutions can easily and cost-effectively bring more data into their applications, giving customers better insight into their networks.
