CloudShark is designed to work with your existing capture, analysis, and trouble-ticket tools and systems. The CloudShark API makes it simple and efficient to upload, tag, and manage capture files from anywhere.
CloudShark fits easily into your existing network and your existing workflow. In addition to the tool integration examples below, CloudShark customers have used our API to build packet capture management into their custom tools and infrastructure quickly and easily.
If you’re a user of Cisco’s WAP125 or WAP581 systems, you can easily troubleshoot network problems by using their built-in packet capture systems. Using packet captures for analysis can seem daunting, but luckily, both of these systems can automatically push your captures to CloudShark, which is specifically designed to make working with packets easy enough to make them your most valuable resource.
StackStorm, by Extreme Networks, is a powerful automation platform that wires together all of your apps, services and workflows. Their CloudShark module lets you take valuable packet capture data taken with tools like tcpdump or tshark and instantly start making them useful in CloudShark's easy to use web-based repository and analysis platform.
Velocimetrics and CloudShark have collaborated to develop a more precise and transparent approach to network visibility for financial and trade markets. With CloudShark functionality, Velocimetrics’ clients are now able to look at particular trade or market data in the system at the packet level, without the possible security risks of moving sensitive data.
Couchdrop.io is a secure cloud storage service that lets you use SCP to manipulate your data assets. They've integrated with cloud storage giants like Dropbox, Google Drive, and AWS-S3.

The Cisco Meraki portfolio of edge networking devices are centrally managed from the cloud. This feature-rich, easy-to-use cloud architecture enables customers to solve new business problems and reduce operating costs.
Cisco Meraki devices allow you to perform remote packet capture and upload to CloudShark directly from your Meraki management system. Once in CloudShark, you can view, share, and analyze the captures with anyone, anywhere.
If you have a lot of processes (like Nagios, OSSEC, Snort, BRO, Splunk, etc.) all creating their own captures for debugging and forensics, and your capture points are spread across many sites, there is a real need to automate remote captures from any number of feeder sources.
Enter the open source pcapdaemon, pioneered by Dan Murphy of Biscayne DevOps. This tool utilizes redis and its pub/sub mechanism to allow the capture tool to listen for requests to start captures. When the capture is finished, it can be pushed up to CloudShark.
Distributed across many different traffic sources, this creates a powerful tool to track network issues, security events, or application failures.
Airtool is a system menu bar application that provides basic functions to check the state and channel configuration of the built-in Wi-Fi adapter, as well as to perform frame captures on single and multiple channels.
Airtool lets you configure your personal CloudShark API token and automatically upload captures directly to your CloudShark archive. Once there, you can view, share, and analyze the captures with anyone, anywhere.

Kismet is an 802.11 layer2 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system. Kismet identifies networks by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks, detecting (and given time, decloaking) hidden networks, and infering the presence of nonbeaconing networks via data traffic. This can now be done on Android phones and tablets running version 4 (ICS) or higher and Wi-Fi cards that use the RTL 8187 chipset using the Kismet Android PCAP app.
When you have performed a capture using this application, you can then use the Android Cloudshark Uploader to directly upload your captures from your Android device to CloudShark.org or your own CloudShark Appliance. When the Uploader is installed, you will see a CloudShark option under the Android "share" function, just as you would share other files such as pictures. The CloudShark Upload option will also appear in most Android file managers.
