Endace is a specialist in providing customers with innovative hardware-based full packet capture recording solutions. In early 2020, as remote workforce issues faced enterprise security teams, the company wanted to have a vehicle to deliver regular content and insights on current security topics, threats, technologies and trends to customers and the industry. The goal of the vlog/podcast was to interview industry leaders and experts in security and network monitoring share challenges and best practices while creating market awareness for Endace as a thought-leader in network forensics. The Endace Packet Forensics Files was born, and its first episode went live on June 18, 2020.

Host, Michael Morris, said, “Security is hard and rapidly changing so it is important that ‘the good guys’ in defending network security are sharing their knowledge just as the threat actors are sharing their attack techniques. The purpose of our vlog and podcast is to open up ideas for people to think about and learn about: issues like how to better secure their networks, discover things that work better when rolling out new tools, or simply things you can do to stay on top of the ever-increasing volume of security alerts. We want to provide thought-leadership and share insights to verticals, approaches, new technologies.

Guests in the fourteen episodes so far have included security and network experts – analysts, systems integrators, and technology partners. Companies interviewed include Enterprise Management Associates, DeFY Security, Palo Alto Networks, Gigamon, Cisco, Darktrace, and Keysight Technologies, and more. The vidcast/podcast continues to build audience, and will continue at full-steam in 2021 with new features, panel discussions, conversations with customers, and longer episodes.
