Our core technology enables capture rates unheard of in such a small form factor. Just as easily as we can scale down this much performance into a compact system, CyberPro portable, cost-efficient systems can be federated at a massive scale. Federated, CyberPro systems can be used at multiple sites from a central hub for monitoring offsite, as well as providing the ability for SOC teams to update security policies remotely.

CyberPro systems are designed for standards-based policies with open data access. We leverage trusted open source communities for databases of threats and rule sets to keep you alerted of critical incidents for full-session analytics and reconstruction. Logs and data are then available in standard file formats so you can integrate them with your own preferred tools.

With a full-featured, mature REST/API, custom workflow scripting, and 3rd party event / data / PCAP correlation, CyberPro systems offer open workflow automation & orchestration.

  • Active Triggers

    Use real-time, dynamic, user-defined Active Triggers and real-time analytics to rapidly direct critical PCAP data for post-processing, using any of multiple third-party open source DPI software packages, conveniently pre-installed and ready-to-use within the system.

  • Extensive Logging Features

    RFC anomaly logging, file download event logging, multi-protocol event / metadata logging. The Log Manager also allows for search, cross-correlation and extraction: HTTP, files, DNS, email, user agents, TLS/SSL.

  • Efficient Data Management

    CyberPro Plus 20G’s built-in PCAP streaming means that no third-party software will “choke” on too much data throughput during PCAP post-processing.

  • Unified GUI

    CyberPro Plus 20G’s interactive dashboard drives your investigation workflow. You control capture operations, check the scrolling alert log, and quickly extract PCAP or IPFIX (netflow) data into Wireshark, or log/metadata findings results into CSV or text. Streaming results are also remotely accessible, both from a host-based WebGUI over the REST interface, and even from a streaming output port into any 3rd party forensics tool.

  • Visualization

    Visualization is pre-installed and hard-wired into the CyberPro Plus 20G fully integrated analytics workflow, using open industry-standard data file formats: PCAP & IPFIX records open in WireShark; log searches open as CSV files; reports as TXT/RTF files.

  • Optional Features

    • Penetration testing / security scanning tools package for more active analysis
    • Carrying bag or rugged case for easier transportation
    • Rugged case for securely storing removable hard drives 

CyberPro Plus 20G Workflow

CyberPro Plus 20G utilizes NextComputing’s Packet Continuum architecture to let you jump quickly between PCAP actions and your tools-of-choice. Gain new insight from DPI analytics tools, and generate graphical incident reports. Then iterate new Active Trigger alerts and PCAP searches, to conclude your investigation quickly.

Real-Time Analytics Features

Open simultaneous BPF-based “Active Triggers”. Adjust them dynamically.

Log Manager events, all with search, cross-correlation and extraction:

  • HTTP
  • File event logging, with file size and URL or SMTP reference
  • DNS
  • Email
  • User agents
  • TLS/SSL
  • Active Triggers (BPF signature)
  • 1000 Snort rules (emerging-DNS, emerging-ftp
  • System events

Log Manager search actions:

  • All logs are time-correlated with PCAPs and IPFIX data
  • Text string search of logs
  • IPFIX record logging and search
  • Choose your results for any search: PCAP, IPFIX, logs, etc.
  • One-click searches auto-populate time period and search filter (BPF), based on context

CyberPro Plus 20G Open Data Access

  1. Cyber team will create/update initial policies on a local system.
  2. Before each mission, upload these policies to a CyberPro Plus for use during the mission.
  3. During the mission, Capture / Threat Hunting. Update real-time alerting policies, as required.
  4. After the mission, offload data that includes marked case data, current policies, and last Capture Store / Extraction Store data.
  5. Perform Post-Mission analysis on the data uploaded in step 4. Automate the post-mission analysis operations by utilizing the NextComputing REST/API.
  6. Record the set of lessons learned and policy updates.
  7. To iterate for the next mission, go to Step 2: upload and share new Policies with the CyberPro Plus appliance(s).
  8. Download any updated policies to the local system, as needed to update and upload again.

Integration on a small platform of Policy Management & Case Management & Forensics, provides the benefit “spiral model” of forensic investigations. Retain the lessons learned from prior missions, by provisioning new portables with the latest policy updates.

CyberPro Plus 20G Capture Process

Continuous lossless packet capture into a rolling FIFO capture store. A separate extraction store retains PCAP file query results.

4-tuple indexing in real time — IP address source/destination, port source/destination — with time stamping as low as 150 nanoseconds

PCAP compression in real time — Overall storage amplification up to 20x (depending on % of captured traffic that is SSL or video)

Search PCAP data from a convenient web GUI, using easy BPF+ descriptors, immediately streaming the results from capture store to persistent extraction store.

A PORTABLE BUILT FOR SCALE

The portable CyberPro Plus 20G works as a stand-alone appliance, and several can also joint together for even greater functionality.

When you require additional capture timeline in the field, configure and connect several other CyberPro Plus 20G appliances as “Cluster Nodes”. NextComputing’s unique MapReduce software framework spreads the processing load, so long timelines are as quick to search as with a single appliance.

When you set up multiple CyberPro Plus 20G appliances to capture at different locations, a single analyst use the Federation Manager capability for integrated remote access via unified web-based UI.

When you have ad-hoc requirements for lossless capture of very high capture rates, for 40Gbps, 100Gbps or even greater, the Federation Manager will also do the job. When high-rate traffic is split (using a Network Packet Broker or Load Balancer) into multiple 10G lines, each CyberPro Plus 20G can capture ip to 20Gbps of the load, and an end-user analyst will see all traffic integrated within the Federated UI. With Federation Manager features, it does not matter where the packets are located: You can make a single query for the whole traffic contents, and the results will be combined from all appliances into a single set of PCAP file results.
