Security distributor, Unixpac, has signed its second new partnership in as many weeks with networking vendor, Solera Networks.
Solera gives the distributor access to a forensics vendor focused around network traffic capture and search appliances that record and archive a complete record of data-in-motion. The new partnership follows Unixpac’s deal with Breachlast week.
Unixpac managing director, Tom Piotrowski, said Solera runs off Bivio’s hardware platform, which it also distributes.
“We’ve been working with Bivio for a while. It has opened its code up to developers, so it’s been good to see some of the ideas some other vendors are coming up with,” Piotrowski said. “Many of our other products can do what Solera can to a degree, but none have the ability to account for every bit of traffic that comes onto the network, and store historical data.”
Piotrowski said this was the first presence the vendor has had locally, and claimed the vendor had become quite successful in a short time. Headquartered in the US, Solera has also opened for business in Japan.
“We’ve been asked to look after things in Australia and New Zealand,” Piotrowski said. “This is becoming a big issue now, especially in large corporate environments, and will continue to grow as web delivery applications are developed further.”
