Network security has become more vital than ever in today’s digital age. With groups like Anonymous hacking the networks of huge corporations, it’s clear a new level protection is required. IPCopper, Inc. hopes to have this next level of security embodied in its newest packet capture appliance, the IPCopper USC1030.
The device can record and detect attempts at bypassing the firewall or other security tools users may have in place. It stores everything, even IP activity, which helps forensics teams that are investigating and looking into security breaches and hacking attempts.
But that isn’t the only benefit it brings to the table. IT is fully automatic, so no configuration on the user’s part, and is electronically undetectable. It also makes carbon copies of e-mails, Web, VoIP and other IP-based communications, has a 20,000 bit encryption, and is compatible with third-party forensics software so you aren’t limited to in software to augment the system.
The USC1030 is incredibly simple to set up for a system of such depth and complexity. After connecting it through an inline or a net tap, the user just needs to power it up for it to begin recording without any need for configuration.
Terms of pricing or availability are unknown, but the USC1030 will still be shown off on June 5 at the SANS Institute. It is in the middle of a weeklong information technology training session where courses will be taught in cybersecurity and IT project management, preparing students to defend their organizations.
There’s no doubt IPCopper is looking forward to the future of the USC1030, and should it hold up to all its benefits, the rest of the world of digital security will be looking forward to it as well.
