The power of CloudShark has always been in empowering teams to work together. Working with packet captures in a native web environment is not only accelerates network and security analysis - it lets collaboration be a key factor in solving problems.
CloudShark 3.7 brings this idea to its next evolution with profile management. This feature, exclusive to CS Enterprise, allows users to grow and maintain a collection of profiles that can be used as templates, customized, and saved for other team members within your company. As analysis techniques change, so do your profiles. This keeps your entire team in sync, eliminates silos of expertise, and preserves best practices across your organization.
CloudShark profiles apply a specific set of columns, preferences, decode options, and decryption rules to a packet capture. Applying a profile changes the information shown to you in the packet viewer, letting you control what information you are presented with.
CloudShark gives you several column presets for common analysis situations like TCP, HTTP, and WiFi. Custom profiles make your analysis workflow more efficient, customizing your view to solve the problem at hand without additional setup.
With CloudShark 3.7, profiles are now tied to the same easy user/group management that CS Enterprise is known for. Profiles can be applied to a single capture, saved for later use, or shared with an entire group.
The ability to save and share profiles is extremely powerful and adds real value in a number of key ways.
Profile management opens the door to a number of new use cases to make collaborative analysis the way to solve network and security problems. Read the full release notes on CloudShark 3.7 and subscribe to our newsletter for updates as we continue to improve!
