SC Magazine’s 2015 Industry Innovator segment names PacketSled one of only three innovators in the space. The magazine describes the next generation of monitoring products as:
“sophisticated analytic algorithms, machine learning and heavy, cloud-based analysis allowing very lightweight agents on the enterprise.”
The article comes after technology editor Peter Stephenson conducted a thorough review of the product, in both live traffic and research environments. In the review, he quickly arrives at one of PacketSled’s key tenants:
“in managing security incidents, speed counts. PacketSled provides easy, fast understanding that allows analysts to pick useful information out of the noise”

The digital forensics group test review earned PacketSled five-out-of-five stars across all categories: features, ease-of-use, performance, documentation, support and value for the money. The review also cites PacketSled’s unique visualizations, excellent analytics and ease of installation among other qualities leading to the 5 star rating.
“This is an excellent tool with depth and a massive amount of actionable information available to prevent and analyze complex breaches.”
– Dr. Peter Stephenson, SC Magazine
While the majority of solutions in the space are focused on a single threaded approach to solving for detection and response, PacketSled identifies threats using a combination of sensor based and cloud analytics, signatures, and threat intelligence, providing incident responders the ability to dive deeply into a threat, or hunt through data on a massive scale.
“We’re very pleased to be rated so highly in this group test. Continuous Monitoring, Forensics, and Incident Response are the fastest growing areas in security for good reasons. Attackers are continuously evolving their strategy, making the combination of real-time visibility with a full fidelity network history one of the most important considerations in information security,” said Matt Harrigan, the company’s President and CEO. “Our consumption-based billing and cloud model enables us to help customers in the mid-market that have previously been unable to deploy these measures due to cost considerations.”
PacketSled can ingest data at speeds ranging from sub-1Gbps to 100Gbps and can be deployed via a software install in mere minutes. The platform gives security analysts the ability to discern real attacks from noise, dramatically reducing the time it takes to resolve serious security incidents.
