The ProtectWise Grid™

ProtectWise™ provides a new utility model for enterprise security, delivering pervasive visibility, automated threat detection and unlimited forensic exploration on-demand and entirely from the cloud. With The ProtectWise Grid, analysts can intuitively interact with petabytes of security data, revolutionizing the way enterprises deal with complex threats at a fraction of the cost.

Lightweight software sensors record network traffic from any network segment from the DMZ to the core to cloud and hybrid networks and even industrial control system (ICS) networks, to establish a high-fidelity memory of the network in the cloud. These sensors capture complete network data and send it to The ProtectWise Grid for storage and analysis. The platform acts as a network defense time machine, automatically analyzing historical data retrospectively and using the most up-to-date threat intelligence in real-time as it hits the cloud, to identify threats, including multi-stage attacks. The ProtectWise Visualizer can be leveraged for real-time situational awareness or as a forensic workbench for incident response teams and analysts. It provides actionable intelligence, including a correlated view of threats with packet-level forensic capabilities, speeding incident response.

Cloud-Based Network Memory

Record traffic from multiple networks into a single haystack for centralized analysis with unlimited, full fidelity retention windows.

  • Long-term retention and analysis of network traffic: Unlimited network packet capture, replay and storage into a single haystack in the cloud.
  • Capture what matters for your risk profile: Adaptive capture options for netflow metadata, stream heads or full PCAP.
  • Built for distributed networks: Deploy on any network segment - enterprise, cloud, hybrid or industrial control systems (ICS) networks.

Wisdom Engine

  • Maximum intelligence from network data: Deep packet inspection of data from more than 4,000 protocols and applications.
  • Put security data in context: Network data compared with proprietary and third-party intelligence for community- scaled detection. Advanced traffic threat analysis performs correlation, heuristics and machine learning.

Automated Retrospection

  • Real-time and retrospective analysis: Analysis engine powered by centralized repository of full-fidelity network data allows for continuous detection and prioritization of threats. New indicators of compromise from network intelligence trigger automatic smart retrospection to analyze past network behavior for newly discovered, latent threats.

A Beautiful Visualization and Forensics Console

Compresses dwell time and incident response with deep forensic exploration using cutting edge visualization tools.

  • Give security teams an easy-to-navigate system to more quickly act on threat intelligence. Advanced forensics visualization allows analysts to interact with data through kill-chain analysis, network connection graphics and event timelines.
  • Beautiful, powerful security console with customizable flexibility. Integration capabilities to feed threat data into custom SOC and forensics dashboards. Quick management of policies for sensor deployment, packet capture, user management and alert notification.


  • Harnesses the power of the recorded network to provide pervasive visibility.
  • Provides unlimited, full- fidelity forensic window.
  • Reduces forensic noise and alert fatigue.
  • Automatically goes back into weeks, months and even years of network traffic to uncover threats that were previously unknown using the latest intelligence.
  • Simplifies security and frees up incident responders to go hunting for threats.
  • Complements existing infrastructure through secure.
  • APIs and a utility-based model SaaS model deploys rapidly.

About ProtectWise™

ProtectWise™ is disrupting the security industry with The ProtectWise Grid™, its network security platform that captures high fidelity network traffic, creates a lasting memory for the network, and delivers real time and retrospective alerting and analysis in a rich, innovative visualizer. By harnessing the power of the cloud, The ProtectWise Grid provides an integrated solution with complete detection and visibility of enterprise threats and accelerated incident response. The ProtectWise Grid delivers unique advantages over current network security solutions, including an unlimited retention window with full-fidelity forensic capacity, the industry's only automated smart retrospection, advanced security visualization, and the ease and cost-savings of an on-demand deployment model.
