LiveAction, a provider of network performance management, today announced it has acquired CounterFlow AI, a network detection and response provider. This acquisition will enable LiveAction’s current and future end customers and channel partners with a unified network performance monitoring and diagnostics platform that incorporates encrypted traffic analysis for security incident detection and response. The combined platform will streamline previously siloed network operations and security operations workflows, using common data, platform integration and visualization.

“NetOps and SecOps teams are facing advanced security threats hiding within the rising tide of encrypted traffic, and losing an inordinate amount of time coordinating to triage alerts and potential incidents,” said Stephen Stuut, CEO of LiveAction. “Businesses today need end-to-end visibility for both network performance and security management, which is why CounterFlow AI’s cutting-edge NDR capabilities are such a perfect match for our platform. Once integrated, our customers and partners can streamline NetOps and SecOps workflows, protect against encrypted threats, ensure the network meets business objectives, and increase overall productivity to reduce the costs of operating and securing the network.”  

“LiveAction has always been a leader in the network management market, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to help expand that legacy with CounterFlow AI’s extensive network detection and response capabilities,” said Bill Cantrell, CEO of CounterFlow AI. “There’s a tremendous amount of demand and opportunity around integrated network performance management and security, and we believe that our combined solutions can help enterprise NetOps and SecOps teams collaborate more effectively.”
