Sandstorm Enterprises is a computer security software vendor founded in 1998 by Simson Garfinkel, James van Bokkelen, Gene Spafford, Dan Geer. In January 2010, it was purchased by Niksun Enterprises.
Sandstorm is located in the greater Boston Area. Sandstorm's major products are PhoneSweep, the first  commercial multi-line telephone scanner (a war dialer), introduced in 1998, and NetIntercept, a commercial network forensics tool, introduced in 2001. Designed as a second-generation network analysis tool, NetIntercept operates primarily at the level of TCP and UDP data streams and application-layer objects they transport.
In 2002 Sandstorm purchased LanWatch, a commercial packet-oriented LAN monitor originally developed by FTP Software. LanWatch is sold a separate product, but much of its functionality is used by NetIntercept to display individual packets.
