14 Apr 2016 Leveraging IPFIX Headers for Complete Network Visibility

Packets and ports are no longer the metrics by which a high speed network is managed — the future is about flows. Flow monitoring has become a proactive and cost effective way to manage and track traffic in high speed networks. Read more

23 Mar 2016 RSA 2016: Insider threats and visibility at the network core

Even as the Telesoft team set up the stand, the atmosphere on the floor of the South Expo was palpable. All the buzz surrounding RSA 2016, pointed to a much more positive atmosphere than last year, 2015 was all about recognising and accepting, that as an industry we have a problem.

03 Mar 2016 RSA 2016: Cyber defence, taking back control

The message is clear, we need boots on the ground and we need to equip them with proper tools to defend themselves.

However, this year’s conference is not about the doom and gloom surrounding the inadequacies of the Cyber security industry. The show this year gives critical focus to the advancements and achievements we have made to counter attacks and protect our networks, the battle drums has been sounded. Read more

22 Jan 2016 Flocon 2016: In Review

The mandate of Flocon 2016 was to provide a forum for large-scale network flow analytics and showcase next-generation analytic techniques. As sponsors of the event and developer of the recently launched Telesoft 100G IPFIX Probe, which generates unsampled flow statistics on traffic up to 100Gbit/s, and as a company supplying ultra-speed cyber defense and intelligence technology we felt we could contribute significantly to the conversation.

14 Jan 2016 Building cost effective 40Gbps IDS in to commodity servers

Many cyber intelligence and security solutions have failed to keep up with data growth and network speeds, particularly inside the network where rates can be significantly higher than at the border. Device stacking is one solution, but this complicates network architecture and management, increases points of failure, and increases overall CAPEX and OPEX. Read more
