Ixia Ties With Security Software Provider

Calabasas-based network testing products developer Ixia said Wednesday that it has linked with log and security information and event analysis provider LogRhythm, to develop a network security incident remediation product. According to Ixia, the new product uses automatic capture of network packets, to help detect and respond to network anomalies and threats. LogRhythm develops software which uses logging data to analyze security threats; Ixia makes network analyzers and testing equipment devices. According to the two companies, the plug in for Ixia's Anue Net Tool Optimizer triggers a network capture automatically when LogRhythm detects a security threat.
