March 27, 2012 11:00 ET Releases CloudShark Enterprise

Proven Web-Based Packet Capture Management System Supports Advanced Features for Enterprise IT Organizations PORTSMOUTH, NH–(Marketwire - Mar 27, 2012) -, creators of the first of its kind packet capture management appliance that allows users to secure, analyze, and share network packet captures, today announced the release of CloudShark Enterprise, its private-cloud-based solution for enterprise IT teams.

With increasing reliance on the data center, centralization and virtualization, and cloud-based services, IT teams face a daunting challenge when it comes to network monitoring, analysis, and troubleshooting. Network packet captures are a critical and often overlooked piece of this evolving world – and the security and organization of network packet captures is something that is yet to be addressed by the IT community. Enterprise IT teams need a way to secure and collaborate on network captures anywhere, at any time, on any device.

“CloudShark’s popularity has showed us that users have embraced the concept of packet surfing – using web technologies for protocol analysis,” said Joe McEachern, founder of “CloudShark Enterprise is the next step – giving enterprise IT teams the advanced power they need to secure and leverage these valuable assets, uncovering problems before they become critical and significantly reducing MTTR.”

CloudShark Enterprise expands on the popular CloudShark Appliance platform. In addition to advancements in speed and graphical analysis capabilities, CloudShark Enterprise lets IT teams integrate CloudShark with their own user authentication and management systems, allows for redundancy and load balancing of multiple CloudShark servers, and lets teams create and use their own custom Wireshark compatible protocol decodes.

Enterprise IT teams are encouraged to contact for a demonstration of the appliance. In addition, network analysis, monitoring, and capture tool creators looking to integrate with the CloudShark system are encouraged to contact CloudShark at
