Velocimetrics have integrated CloudShark Enterprise into their financial/trade data network visibility solution.
Velocimetrics, the provider of real-time business flow tracking and performance analytics and CloudShark, the world’s first web-based packet capture management and analysis system have today announced a tie-up, which will enable traders, network operatives and financial IT specialists to have greater visibility into network packets of data.
Velocimetrics and CloudShark have collaborated to develop a modular solution in response to the market’s demand for a more precise and transparent approach to network visibility, primarily due to regulatory demands, such as from MiFID II. It will allow financial institutions to take a forensic approach to any problems that arise on the network, caused by market anomalies, unauthorised trading behaviour and security issues. Taking advantage of the Velocimetrics high performance real-time packet and transaction capture, CloudShark allows users to inspect packet captures as a first rather than a last resort, in resolving network or security issues.
With this added CloudShark functionality, Velocimetrics’ clients are now able to look at a particular trade or market data in the system and query the individual packets of data that make up that detail through a simple click through. Previously, large files of data would have to be downloaded, without the seamless link to the market data or trade detail. It’s much better to capture data in real-time, with all the associated analytics. This approach negates the possible security risks that are associated with moving sensitive data. The new functionality means the process is now automated, transparent and more secure.
