Corelight is a security-focused network traffic analysis provider that uses Zeek as its basis. Corelight Sensors convert network traffic data into logs and extracted files which can all be managed through the Corelight Fleet Manager. Through the Fleet Manager, admins can define custom groups, assign individual roles, and set access levels. Corelight Sensors come either as hardware for networks, as a virtual sensor, or as a cloud traffic monitor for AWS.

Shawn Cerian, partner at EIP, added: “Corelight’s strong NDR technology, rooted in open source, has had a significant impact across industries and is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for sophisticated defenders. We look forward to supporting them as they expand their existing footprint within the sustainable energy, manufacturing, and other critical infrastructure sectors.”
