Enea Announces New Smart Tools to Identify Encrypted and Evasive Network Traffic
The Enea Qosmos ixEngine delivers the traffic visibility that solution vendors need to optimize network security and performance, while safeguarding privacy
Enea, a global supplier of innovative software components for cybersecurity and telecommunications, is pleased to announce enhancements to the Enea Qosmos ixEngine and Enea Qosmos Probe products that deliver greater insight into encrypted and evasive traffic.
Anonymity and privacy technologies, like data encryption and VPNs, are vital for safe and secure communications, but they limit the visibility network professionals rely on for troubleshooting, performance optimization, and business analytics. They also impact cyber security specialists, who need traffic visibility to detect and analyze threats in networks.
Providers of network management and security products have long relied on Enea’s Qosmos traffic intelligence technology for exceptional visibility and rich data sets that enable them to differentiate their products in continuously evolving markets. The rise of encrypted and evasive traffic may be a challenging evolution, but as with others that have preceded it, Enea can help its customers transform change into competitive advantage.
To this end, the company has created a special team dedicated to developing innovative techniques for extracting maximum insights from encrypted and evasive traffic, while packet content remains private. The efforts have resulted in recent product enhancements that deliver unique visibility of 6 types of evasive traffic:
- Cryptocurrencies and mining pools
- Covert communication channels
- VPNs (Virtual Private Networks)
- Anonymizer applications
- Traffic spoofing applications
- Embedded links in emails
“As the use of encryption increases – and becomes more robust with TLS 1.3 – and as evasive tactics become more complex, innovation is key for our customers to maintain the critical visibility they need to optimize performance and respond to threats,” said Jean-Philippe Lion, Senior Vice President of the DPI Business Unit at Enea. “With our new and enhanced capabilities, we are confident our clients will be able to meet the challenges of encrypted and evasive traffic head on, and develop even stronger and smarter solutions for protecting networks.”
The enhanced versions of the Enea Qosmos ixEngine and Enea Qosmos Probe products will be presented at the Enea booth (#236) in the South Expo hall at RSA Conference 2020.
