Full Network Visibility
Perform continuous real-time monitoring of activities and behaviors of workstations, servers and other network devices.
CatchWire installs without the need for wiring or infrastructure changes. It can be used to “pull” data from the network by configuring it as a remote Wireshark sensor, or it can store data internally by using a local tshark instance. It can also discretely capture, collect and report flow traffic information (Cisco® NetFlow™, Juni-per® J-Flow, IPFIX, sFlow®, etc).
It delivers real-time data to help address common security challenges including: internal IDS, communication monitoring, data leakage, botnet and worm detection.

CatchWire is the best tool we have found for troubleshooting customer sites. Its slim and sturdy aluminum design makes it ideal to just slip into a padded envelope to ship to our customers.
The best part of CatchWire is the ease and flexibility of implementing new ideas, which we use it for all the time.
I evaluate network-based audio device and investigate their control protocols using Wireshark. By placing CatchWire between the device and the network switch I can remotely monitor the traffic from the several clients on different computers and examine the relative timing of the devices’ responses.
Your CatchWire has been a great help in tracking down a problem with a file clean-up process in one of our applications that is being migrated to a new storage system.
CatchWire really helped to ID the problem and steer us to a new storage solution design.
