Title: Cetacea Networks OrcaFlow® Embedded Technology for Ethernet Switches, Evaluation of Network-based Anomaly Detection Feature

Publication date:   07 August 2006
Document number:    206140


Cetacea Networks Corp. commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate its OrcaFlow® network-based anomaly detection (NBAD) technology, a novel software approach to monitoring and detecting a wide array of security threats.

Tolly Group engineers conducted a variety of test scenarios involving OrcaFlow. A baseline test measured the ability of the software to handle “normal” network traffic loads without any adverse impact of switch performance and with minimal to no false positives introduced during the monitoring process. A high volume multiport monitoring test examined OrcaFlow’s ability to rapidly detect the traffic anomalies, identify the software’s ability to detect a breadth of threats and do so with minimal false positives.

Additionally, Tolly Group engineers verified OrcaFlow’s compatibility between SNMP MIB II devices and sFlow® capable devices. Finally, engineers measured the processor utilization on Ethernet switches and bandwidth usages by OrcaFlow® TeraSAR™ sensor to determine its impact on host devices.
