NetScout Systems has completed its acquisition of privately held Fox Replay BV, a provider of session reconstruction and replay technology that enables organizations to perform forensic analysis of end-user actions in support of CyberIntelligence, Information Assurance, Lawful Intercept and general security practices.

Fox Replay’s technology strengthens NetScout’s Unified Service Delivery Management strategy by providing comprehensive end-user session reconstruction and visual replay of an end-user’s activities showing an analyst exactly what the end user saw.

"Addressing the security of business assets and IT services continues to be a top concern for IT organizations in government agencies and enterprises alike. To proactively address these concerns, IT staff need application-specific forensic analysis capabilities," said Anil Singhal, President and CEO of NetScout. "With the acquisition of Fox Replay BV, NetScout will gain critical technology and expertise that will help us continue to build on our core strategy of advanced packet-flow intelligence and accelerate our innovation to address the growing CyberSecurity concerns in our target markets.”

With an installed base including many government security organizations from around the world, the FoxReplay Analyst software delivers trusted and exact historical interpretation of actual end-user activities. The technology supports a broad set of applications including email, Web, IP communications, social networking and Internet Messaging, enabling analysts to reproduce exactly what the end-user saw or heard.

In addition to providing advanced session reconstruction and replay technology, the acquisition of Fox Replay BV will bring a team of industry-leading engineers to NetScout. Upon the close of the acquisition, the Fox Replay team will be integrated into NetScout’s ongoing operations.

Financial terms of the transaction are undisclosed.
