DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING ON YOUR NETWORK? EVE DOES.

Whitedust Labs and cDc's Ninja Strike Force release software that allows administrators to visualize network traffic in real-time 3D.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM May 9, 2007 - Whitedust Labs and cDc's Ninja Strike Force announce the release of Eve (http://www.whitedust.net/eve/), a software suite designed to model real-time network traffic in a 3D format. Designed to produce stunning real-time visualizations of traffic flow, Eve provides an in-sight into networks never before possible.

"Eve is the newest breed of network intelligence. Solutions to monitor and watch your network up till now have sufficed, just about," said Mark Anderson, Whitedust.net Director and Eve lead developer, "Eve makes them redundant though - pie charts and bar graphs just don't cut it. We are all very excited about this break-through product, but also of our Active Participation program".

Software development typically happens behind closed doors, the Eve Active Participation program ensures that anyone who purchases a full copy of the software is granted a voice and a vote in future Eve development. This is a highly novel approach to application development - harnessing 'groupthink' to give users a real position of power to shape the future of the product.

The concept behind Eve was to produce a stand-alone solution capable of generating real-time visualisations of network traffic. Human pattern matching far surpasses any man-made attempt at intuition. By allowing admins to visually inspect network traffic they will quickly become accustomed to typical network activity, notice flow patterns and spot bottlenecks and trouble spots.

"Eve allows admins to really harness their own intuition," said Allen Zimmerman, a network administrator with over 10 years experience and a beta tester for the Eve software. "Network intelligence has never been this intelligent."

Whitedust researchers have been producing the Eve prototype internally for almost a year but recently noticed that NetQos had been producing a similar piece of software called Netcosm. While NetQos have no plans at the moment to release Netcosm, it's announcement spurred Whitedust to complete the Eve prototype and release it.

.torrent?

Lovely, but you have to pay for the full version? That's a bit of a downer.

Sounds like you pulled this one straight from a Gibson novel. However, you might want to pull the phrase "groupthink" from the press release (unless it was meant sarcastically). "Groupthink" is a negative concept where people in a group come to bad decisions due to chickenshittedness.

I'm not making this up: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groupthink
