ProfiShark 1G+

Innovative and Easy to Use Gigabit Ethernet TAP


ProfiShark 1G+ is designed for high fidelity network traffic capture, with advanced timestamping capabilities. It is a portable network TAP, with additional GPS/GLONASS input for UTC timestamping, and PPS input/output for timestamp synchronization.

As a non-intrusive device, ProfiShark 1G+ is undetectable by the network, and leaves the original traffic unaltered. This helps you capture network data without impacting the security or the performance of the network. Powered by USB 3.0, ProfiShark 1G+ captures high fidelity network traffic, with accurate timestamps, and packets of all sizes and types. The packets can in turn be analyzed with Wireshark or any network analyzer, where ProfiShark’s hardware filtering capabilities save you time and disk space.

The ProfiShark series also includes other essential features, such as packet slicing, statistics, configuration options, and high-performance capture to disk, through our own ProfiShark Manager application.

PROFISHARK 1G+ HELPS YOU:

 

QUICKLY GET PACKET-LEVEL INSIGHT

ProfiShark enables complete data capture in a portable form factor. This means you can deploy rapidly anywhere, and capture the traffic data you need, with no performance impact on your production network.

GET TRACE FILES YOU CAN RELY ON

To help optimize your analysis workflow and consume less disk storage, ProfiShark offers packet slicing capabilities, making sure you only get actionable data.

GET TRANSPARENT AND NON-INTRUSIVE ACCESS

Capture network data without impacting security or performance. The ProfiShark and host PC will not show up as a node on the network. Network connection is maintained, even when power to the ProfiShark is lost. ProfitShark is set up to passthrough PoE.

GET THE TIMESTAMP ACCURACY YOU NEED

Accurate timestamping is essential for the analysis of performance metrics like TCP flow throughput, delay and jitter. ProfiShark 1G+ provides hardware timestamping with 8 ns accuracy, and advanced GPS/PPS timestamping features.

HOW IT WORKS:

 

STRAIGHTFORWARD SETUP AND MANAGEMENT

Place ProfiShark in the line of the packets you want to analyze and use the ProfiShark Manager GUI to control hardware and packet capture settings.

CAPTURE HIGH FIDELITY NETWORK TRAFFIC

Capture all bytes from layer 1 to 7, with a high quality timestamp, regardless of packet rate.

MULTIPLE TRAFFIC CAPTURE OPTIONS AVAILABLE

Start capture directly to disk without the need for external software, Live capture in Wireshark, Long-term traffic capture on NAS.

WIDE OS SUPPORT

ProfiShark is supported on the main OS choices on the market today: Linux, Windows and macOS.

TECHNICAL DETAILS:

 

DEPLOY IN-LINE OR OUT-OF-BAND

The ProfiShark 1G+ can be configured in either in-line mode or as out-of-band, monitoring traffic from SPAN/mirror ports or external TAPs. This device is a high-performance failure safe TAP, with PoE passthrough.

COMPATIBLE WITH MANY PROTOCOL ANALYZERS

ProfiShark is often used in combination with Wireshark for protocol analysis, but can be combined with most traffic analyzers.

PHYSICAL ISOLATION

The monitored network is physically isolated (diode) from the host, to avoid any risk of injection or MITM attack through the device

FLEXIBLE POWERING OPTIONS

ProfiShark can be powered from a USB 3 port, or a 5V DC input.

Long-Term Traffic Capture

ProfiShark long-term capture solution is designed with flexibility in mind. Combined with a NAS for storage tailored to your specific needs, the long-term capture feature makes it easy to catch intermittent problems in the act.

Benefits:

  • Ringbuffer or normal capture mode
  • Split capture to different files, base on time or size
  • Compatible with all Intel based Synology NAS systems
