Decoder is a real-time, distributed, highly configurable network recording appliance that enables users to collect, filter, and analyze full network traffic in an infinite number of dimensions.
NetWitness® Decoder is the cornerstone of the NetWitness NextGen™ infrastructure and the key component of an enterprise-wide network security monitoring platform. Unlike every other network recording or monitoring products on the market, Decoder fully reassembles and globally normalizes all traffic at every layer for full session analysis. The patented Decoder represents a breakthrough in network traffic monitoring that dynamically builds a complete taxonomy of data across all layers and applications, including full packets.
Decoder creates a real-time, definitive collection of highly organized content and context of all your network traffic that is immediately accessible to all NetWitness applications, including NetWitness Spectrum, NetWitness Investigator Enterprise, and NetWitness Informer. NetWitness Decoder includes NetWitness® Live, which provides you with access to multi-source threat intelligence. For more advanced applications, users can leverage the NetWitness API/SDK to build organizational-specific applications. Decoder represents the intersection of network metrics, rich application flow and content information that differentiates NetWitness® products from any other capabilities on the market. Decoder is deployed on many of the fastest and largest networks in the world by leading enterprises.
