Bro is the most powerful network visibility solution for information security professionals, but it remains a tool that is not widely understood in the enterprise market. This webinar will explain the power of Bro, where it fits in the security landscape, how it complements other security tools, and how it helps incident responders do their jobs more quickly and effectively.

Bro had early adoption in the defense, intelligence and other government agencies, as well as in research & education, but only recently has its use in the enterprise market expanded. Bro is very powerful but can be difficult to implement, use, and integrate. Today, as the threats facing enterprises get more sophisticated and destructive, and as networks get more complex and heterogeneous, the power of Bro's rich data has become vitally important.

Corelight was founded in 2015 by the creators and maintainers of Bro, including Vern Paxson who created it at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab in 1995, to provide an enterprise-class solution built on Bro for enterprise customers.
