Wild Packets Launches Compass for Network Analysis

In an effort to help navigate network packets, Wild Packets is debuting a new tool called Compass Live to provide real-time analysis capabilities. The Compass Live solution can pull in packet captures from one of Wild Packets own Omnipeak devices or by way the open source Wireshark application.
