OEM solutions that deliver unique, reliable results for your customers

Packet Continuum is an ideal sub-system platform for next-generation solutions in the cyber security, performance monitoring, or network activity compliance markets. It is an open PCAP data management layer, handling the essential high-throughput “packet data plumbing”, which is an important requirement of OEM solutions which deliver unique software analytics results. With Packet Continuum, OEMs now have a faster and easier option to upgrade legacy applications using an open, standards-based platform.

OEM network analytics solutions target many applications, such as

  • Advanced Threat Detection
  • Network Behavioral Analysis and Detection
  • Switch and Packet Broker Infrastructure Services
  • Application and Performance Monitoring
  • Cloud-Based Security Services
  • Lawful Intercept
  • Data Loss Prevention
  • Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC)
  • Government Agency Solutions

Packet Continuum provides a consistent API and feature set, which is identical across a wide variety of deployable platforms. In fact, the Packet Continuum software layer can also be deployed on either specialized OEM hardware platforms, or End-User purchased commodity servers.

In particular, the REST/API allows OEM developers to take dynamic control of real time IOC alerts from Packet Continuum, and fine-tune the packet analytics for their unique purposes. Packet Continuum features are designed to coordinate closely with OEM software solutions which perform advanced analytics, interpret events, correlate with other data sources determine the real nature of cyber threats, and take decisive action. Often such action involves further deep analysis of PCAP data using the extensive PCAP query/retrieval capabilities.

NextComputing works with OEM development teams to select which real time packet analytics functions will maximize the OEM’s unique solution, while minimizing costs for the set of target platforms (from low cost to high performance) which the OEM needs to support. Packet Continuum real time alerts are a first-level filter, allowing the OEM application to decide which streams to extract for in-depth DPI analysis.

Custom PCAP applications with high performance response times are easy to build with the open REST/API. OEMs can also utilize the versatile Packet Continuum WebGUI screens within their own application, and customize logo and styles for their own look and feel.

NextComputing’s Open PCAP philosophy also implies a strong commitment not to compete with our valued OEM partners. The Packet Continuum platform is a dependable and deterministic data repository, AND a customizable packet analytics alerting engine.
