Endace and Cace Enter into Software Development and License Agreement

Endace, a provider of network monitoring solutions, and Cace Technologies, a provider of commercial and open-source network analysis solutions, have entered into a software development and license agreement.

According to Endace, the partnership drives development of end-user applications for high-speed network monitoring, visualization and analysis.

The Endace NinjaProbe incorporates a client-server implementation of the Cace Pilot high-level network analyzer to deliver intuitive drag-and-drop analysis of live and captured data. Capitalizing on Cace Pilot's tight integration with Wireshark, the solution also provides complete or filtered packet captures for immediate dissection by the network forensic application.

Mike Riley, CEO of Endace, said: "Network Professionals worldwide are already intimately familiar with Cace Technologies. As overseers of Wireshark, a network analyzer, Cace has developed exceptional products that enhance the network troubleshooting, monitoring, and management experience of the hundreds of thousands who use it on a daily basis. We are excited to be able to tap into their knowledge and expertise to add sophisticated and unique analytic capabilities to our leading multi-function probe and sensor solution, the NinjaProbe."

John Bruno, president and CEO of Cace Technologies, said: "Endace's NinjaProbe is a high performance monitoring appliance that can write huge amounts of traffic to disk on links as fast as 10Gig. In coupling our respective technologies, we can truly deliver enterprise-grade analytics for operators where they want it, when they want it, and how they want it."
