Embedded DPI and Traffic Intelligence

Next-Generation DPI Engine

Detailed Traffic Visibility up to Layer 7

Learn how Qosmos ixEngine can boost your solution with detailed, real-time traffic visibility

Detailed Traffic Visibility up to Layer 7

Qosmos ixEngine® is a commercial grade, next-generation Deep Packet Inspection (NG DPI) and classification engine that recognizes over 4000 protocols and applications, more than any other Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) engine on the market.

Delivered as a Software Development Kit (SDK), it is composed of software libraries, modules and tools that are easily integrated into new or existing solutions. Developers of networking and security products benefit from market-leading traffic identification techniques and next-generation network intelligence technology to bring detailed, real-time traffic visibility to their solutions up to Layer 7. Developed specifically for integration into third-party applications, Qosmos ixEngine removes the need to develop in-house protocol recognition capabilities, simplifying product development and accelerating delivery and time-to-market.

Qosmos ixEngine Overview

Decoding Engine

  • Identification of protocols and applications behind each IP flow using a combination of advanced techniques including stateful inspection, behavioral and statistical analysis, heuristics, machine learning, etc.
  • Extraction of metadata and metrics related to applications, services, data, users, devices, and traffic flows

Protocol Plugin Bundle and Updates

  • Qosmos’ protocol plugin bundle includes thousands of protocol and application plugins to classify flows and extract metadata.
  • Our labs continuously monitor protocols and applications updating protocol plugins to ensure they are always up-to-date

    Encrypted traffic poses significant visibility challenges for enterprises, so it is critical for solution vendors to develop supplemental or alternative approaches to reduce encrypted traffic risk and widen encrypted traffic visibility, including without the need for decryption. Enea’s new encrypted traffic visibility and MITM threat indication represent precisely the kinds of innovation that are needed to help solution vendors meet this formidable challenge.

  • AvidThink logo
    Application awareness is essential for SD-WAN and SASE solutions, but many conventional traffic classification engines score poorly in accuracy, granularity and performance. A solution like Enea’s First Packet Advantage, that operates with high accuracy in first packet mode, brings improved protection and performance to vendors and end-customers.

    As networks have evolved, it has become critical to implement intelligent network security as a second line of defense to existing endpoint- and perimeter-based threat detection and response systems. This is true for everyone, but especially so for our critical network customers, for whom the stakes of a breach are very high. We are therefore very pleased to partner with Enea to ensure that our platform provides the most effective and reliable network defense possible.
