Dynamite Analytics Releases Dynamite Agent for AWS, a Cloud-Native Network Sensor for Enabling Network Detection and Response in AWS Environments

Dynamite Agent delivers best-in-class network visibility and cybersecurity alerts with Zeek and Suricata via AWS VPC Traffic Mirroring

Atlanta, Georgia – March 12, 2021 – Dynamite Analytics, an emerging provider of network traffic analysis, today announced its launch of Dynamite Agent for AWS. Dynamite Agent enables Network Detection and Response (NDR) capabilities for AWS cloud environments. NDR alerts and metadata represent the ground truth of network activity and allow detection of highly sophisticated cyber threats. By strategically deploying Dynamite Agents in AWS environments, organizations can perform in-depth traffic analysis of their network segments and valuable assets.

Dynamite Agent is built on the industry-leading network traffic inspection technologies Zeek and Suricata. Zeek delivers network metadata, such as comprehensive connection telemetry, application-layer transcripts and artifacts, going far beyond NetFlow and other types of flow data. Suricata complements Zeek with rule-based network intrusion alerts based on the top IDS signature dataset. Dynamite Agent uses AWS VPC Traffic Mirroring to passively listen to the traffic without any network interference.

Contrary to most 3rd party NDR solutions, Dynamite Agent can act autonomously and is designed for integration with existing SIEM and SOAR cyber monitoring solutions. As a result, Dynamite Agent seamlessly fits into an existing SecOps process and toolset without reliance on external systems and out-of-network transfer of analytic data.

Dynamite Agent is available on AWS Marketplace on a pay-as-you-go plan with a 15-day trial and a free consultation from Dynamite Analytics.
