Dark Reading reports that:
A new security startup founded by former Los Alamos National Laboratory security experts will come out of stealth mode on Tuesday, with a commercial version of an incident response tool they had built for the government lab.
Santa Fe, N.M.-based Packet Analytics will officially roll out Net/FSE Network Forensic Search Engine software, which collects and organizes Cisco NetFlow and syslog log data into a searchable format, helping analysts to investigate breaches as soon as they occur.
The real-time tool is based on technology licensed exclusively from Los Alamos, which has been using the tool for five years to handle incident response investigations.
Packet Analytics is offering a free download of the basic tool, which supports up to one million events per day. Anything higher incurs a licensing fee — anywhere from $1,495 for up to 3 million events per day to $18,950 for 50 million events per day.
Neat stuff! And how rarely the words “free” and “forensic” go together
