Evolve Services and WAW Technologies (CatchWire) have entered into an agreement to develop the European market for CatchWire. Evolve will build out the CatchWire brand, set-up a local sales and distribution channel and grow CatchWire’s existing customer base in Europe, starting in the Benelux.
CatchWire, your remote Wireshark Sensor
CatchWire is a small, inconspicuous device that can be installed in-line at network endpoints, such as PCs, VOIP phones, printers and other IoT devices. CatchWire is also used for monitoring networked assets located in remote offices and branches. It is designed to monitor, collect, process, filter, or redirect data traffic for analysis and investigation. CatchWire fits in the palm of your hand and is the perfect companion for Wireshark, the world’s foremost network protocol analyzer.
CatchWire is an intelligent inline network monitoring appliance used by IT security organizations to detect threats to high value and remote areas of the network. Scaling from single endpoints to entire networks, CatchWire monitors traffic, and delivers real time flow data to leading collector and analytic applications.
European Ambitions for CatchWire
Robert Venczel founder and CEO of CatchWire, the Canada based cyber security vendor sees great potential in the European market and has chosen Evolve Services to build out CatchWire’s EU customer base.
We are looking forward to working with Evolve to expand our EU market presence supported by their solid technology background, wide network of distributors and resellers, and extensive knowledge and experience in the field of marketing, sales, business development and management.
Sander van den Nieuwenhuijzen, Managing Partner at Evolve Services, expects great success of the partnership between CatchWire and Evolve, and sees a lot of potential in the solution:
CatchWire is a versatile solution that brings in-depth visibility where it is needed the most. This enables network and security professionals to gather important insights in network traffic, and the state of the connected devices. With CatchWire you get all the data and put it to use in your favorite software tooling. In comparison with traditional solutions, such as high-end probes, network analyzers and taps, CatchWire does what it needs to do, is flexible and affordable. You can deploy CatchWire as a local or remote sensor on 1 Gig Ethernet based networks.
Why choose CatchWire?
CatchWire can be used in a wide variety of scenarios by IT security, systems, and network professional or organization. With the Wireshark sensor, you can start analyzing your network, and monitor suspicious activity within minutes. CatchWire installation is simple, it does not require an on-site IT professional, and enables you to simply perform Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) and deliver Endpoint Security, no matter how small, big, simple or complex your site is. This makes the solution compelling for SMBs, MSPs and MSSPs.
CatchWire presents a series of advantages compared to what is available in the market today, and complements the existing network monitoring and analysis (NTA) solutions (such as Cisco Stealthwatch and Riverbed SteelCentral).
- Passively monitors the traffic crossing the network at the point of installation and creates NetFlow records for export to a collector with no impact on existing routers, switches, or firewalls.
- Delivers 100% accurate pure (unsampled) NetFlow in V5, V9 or IPFIX formats.
- Reduces the load on the network by limiting the amount of data collected based on what is needed for security analysis.
- Is host, application, operating system, collector and analytics agnostic.
- The security analyst can “cut the line” remotely in case of an attack detected at the monitored endpoint.
- Requires no database of signatures or daily updates.
- Needs no infrastructure changes to work.
- Can monitor IP devices that do not support the deployment of software agents, such as VoIP devices, printers, scanners, SCADA/ICS, etc.
