Why did CELARE integrate R&S®PACE 2 to boost their monitoring sensor T-Sense?

Customer product: T-SENSE - innovative adaptive monitoring sensor

“Our customers are increasingly seeing the need to protect their highly sensitive IT and SCADA controlled infrastructure against malware and attacks. We decided to license R&S®PACE 2 from ipoque, a Rohde & Schwarz company, as we recognized their technical leadership in deep packet inspection and behavioral analysis. We are pleased that ipoque was able to provide the metadata and content extraction functionality we needed to offer the best service and product to our customers.”

How did integrating R&S®PACE 2 improve network behavior analysis?

CELARE, a leading provider of cybersecurity and network analysis solutions, focuses on analyzing network behavior and building a contextual layer for research and investigation purposes. In order to concentrate efforts on their core business and market objectives, they decided not to invest the time and effort required to develop a cutting-edge DPI engine from scratch. They decided to integrate the latest version of the deep packet inspection software R&S®PACE 2 in their innovative monitoring platform T-SENSE to reveal cyberthreats. The software-based solution combines a variety of cutting-edge technologies and uses a non-intrusive approach to get better visibility over the network and anticipate where and how attacks will appear. The embedded capabilities of R&S®PACE 2 make T-Sense a scalable software-based sensor for continuous network monitoring optimized to offer the best performance.

What is the advantage of an integrated SCADA decoder?

Machine to machine (M2M) communication, which is increasingly important due to the Internet of Things (IoT), needs to be protected from hidden malicious code. The SCADA decoder that can detect disguised malicious software, is available as part of R&S®PACE 2 and is now featured in CELARE’s innovative T-SENSE product and offered to industrial plant owners for the protection of their data network infrastructure. Its custom decoder capability makes it possible to extract additional metadata without the need for extra code. T-Sense makes the most of the DPI capabilities of R&S®PACE 2 by combining them with specific customer knowledge and requirements to achieve the best solution for each use case.
