The Power of Suricata

Bricata’s signature-based threat detection engine is compatible with existing Snort and Suricata rules and optimized for today’s high-performance hardware.

Bricata is a complete network monitoring and protection solution. The system is comprised of sensors used to instrument networks and a Central Management Console (CMC) that aggregates data from the sensors for threat hunting and investigation. It delivers network visibility, threat detection, threat hunting and investigation, and prevention in a single, self-contained, easy-to-use system.

Conventional IDS/IPS systems have lacked the innovation needed to address advanced threats, evidenced by the wide-scale adoption of open source technologies. Suricata and Zeek (formerly Bro) are two of the leading engines many teams are using to create tools; but like most open source technologies, they can be difficult to build, deploy, and maintain in-house without the right expertise.

Bricata is closing the gap by delivering the first network security sensors with integrated Suricata and Zeek engines. We simplify operations and maintenance with a centralized management console that auto-manages threat intelligence, signatures, scripts, and policies.

About Suricata

Suricata is a free and open source, mature, fast, and robust network threat detection engine capable of real time intrusion detection (IDS), inline intrusion prevention (IPS), network security monitoring (NSM), and offline pcap processing. Suricata inspects the network traffic using a powerful and extensive rules and signature language. With standard input and output formats like YAML and JSON integrations with tools like existing SIEMs, Splunk, Logstash/Elasticsearch, Kibana, and other databases become effortless. Suricata’s fast-paced community driven development focuses on security, usability and efficiency.

The Suricata project and code is owned and supported by the Open Information Security Foundation (OISF), a non-profit foundation committed to ensuring Suricata’s development and sustained success as an open source project.
