LAFAYETTE, Ind. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Open Information Security Foundation (OISF) today announced that nPulse Technologies, LLC has joined the consortium as its first Gold Level member. “The OISF is excited about the support nPulse and Napatech will provide,” said Matt Jonkman, Board Member at the Open Information Security Foundation.

“As leaders in the acceleration market they have invaluable advice and engineering expertise to lend our development team. nPulse’s work to enable the Suricata engine to natively take advantage of Napatech’s technology will open up new market opportunities for Suricata.”

“We are excited to join OISF and to have the opportunity to contribute to the Suricata project,” said Randy Caldejon, President of nPulse Technologies. “The Suricata project exemplifies the open-source spirit at its best; that is, organizations putting aside their competitive differences for the common good of building a state-of-the-art intrusion detection and prevention engine. We look forward to adding our expertise to the development effort.”

nPulse will maintain a QA Test lab for Suricata developers at its Charlottesville, VA, facility. Developers will be able to access the nPulse systems remotely, load their code revisions, and test Suricata under heavy traffic loads generated by a 10Gbps HammerHead Capture and Replay System, a product of nPulse Technologies.
