Reservoir Labs Expands R-Scope® Cyber Security Monitoring Solutions

Company leverages Myricom FastStack™ Sniffer10G™ in new 20 Gbps mid-range product

NEW YORK – Following Reservoir Labs' groundbreaking 100 Gbps R-Scope® DOMINATE-T™ announcement in May, the company today introduced the R-Scope PACE-X™, a new mid-range addition to the R-Scope suite of scalable network security monitoring appliances.  The 1U rack-mountable R-Scope PACE-X system extracts and analyzes cyber-security intelligence data from network traffic, incorporating Myricom's FastStack™ Sniffer10G™ technology for sustained performance at 20 Gbps. 

Designed for adaptive cyber defense, Reservoir's R-Scope next generation cyber-security systems detect complex indicators of compromise, delivering dynamic attack discrimination and real-time situational awareness beyond the sophistication levels of traditional signature-based IDS/IPS systems.  To enable the protocol-aware analytics needed to recognize these complex indicators, R-Scope leverages and extends the state-of-the-art open source Bro(1) analytics scripting language.  This targeted approach empowers cyber-security analysts to deploy defensive measures and encapsulate security policies tailored to their unique environments, while at the same time maintaining compatibility with the breadth of available open-source Bro analytics. 

R-Scope PACE-X utilizes Myricom's industry leading, high performance 10 Gb Ethernet network adapters to provide line rate, zero loss packet capture.  Myricom's FastStack™ Sniffer10G™ technology allows R-Scope PACE-X to deliver 20 Gbps of sustained performance directly to the cyber-security user analytics, bypassing performance degrading kernel to user space packet copies.

"Myricom's Sniffer10G enables Reservoir Labs R-Scope PACE-X to deliver affordable lossless packet performance up to 20Gbps in a compact 1U platform," said John Hagerman, Vice President of Business Development at Myricom. "Sniffer10G's multi-ring capture capability has enabled Reservoir to leverage every x86 core in the server to handle traffic analysis thereby optimizing the appliance's performance."

For security professionals and researchers, R-Scope PACE-X delivers a combination of reliable sustained performance, flexible configuration and plug-and-play rapid integration into existing enterprise security infrastructures, not found in stove-piped proprietary products or roll-your-own solutions. 

The PACE-X is fully compatible with Reservoir's R-Scope DOMINATE-T 100 Gbps and R-Scope PACE-T 40 Gbps systems and can operate as a standalone sensor or synergistically as part of an R-Scope security cluster.

Reservoir will highlight their R-Scope PACE and DOMINATE network security monitoring systems at the AFCEA International Cyber Symposium, to be held at the Baltimore, MD Convention Center, June 25-27, 2013, Booth 726.  For more information on R-Scope network security appliances, please contact Reservoir Labs,, or visit
