Unlike other commercial network analysis products, the WildPackets OmniAnalysis Platform features open APIs and an SDK. WildPackets customers can write their own extensions to the OmniPeek Analyser and to OmniEngines, which can be deployed at remote locations across the network to analyse network traffic in real time.
With our open APIs and SDK, we’re putting the power of creativity into the hands of users.
said Mahboud Zabetian, WildPackets’ President and Founder.
We’ve created a solution that lets customers tailor our platform to suit their exact needs. In addition, they can take advantage of the growing number of plug-ins and other extensions being created by other customers and by our own engineers.
The Google Map Plug-in, which runs on our OmniPeek Analyser, is just one example of what’s possible when talented network engineers build on the OmniAnalysis Platform.”
The Google Map Plug-in is free to all users of OmniPeek.
Other available plug-ins include:
- A SQLFilter plug-in that enables users to submit SQL queries to locate key data in packet captures
- A TCPDump Adapter that enables administrators to securely capture and analyse traffic from Linux and Unix nodes running the industry standard tcpdump utility.
