CIO Review Names NIKSUN in the Top 50 IoT Companies
Published on: 12-17-2014
Princeton, NJ, December 17, 2014 – NIKSUN® the world leader in real-time and forensics-based cybersecurity and network performance monitoring solutions, is proud to announce today that it has been named as one of Top 50 IoT Companies for NIKSUN’s innovative technological contribution in securing the Internet of Things.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the underlying interconnection of various computing devices and smart objects within the existing Internet infrastructure. The IoT advances beyond machine-to-machine(M2M) communications. Furthermore, it is expected to usher in automation in nearly all fields, including devices for automobiles, health monitoring, and home security, along with SmartGrid applications – and that’s merely the tip of the IoT iceberg. The IoT generates large amounts of high-velocity, aggregated data from diverse locations which will increase the need to better index, store and process such data.
As the article in CIO Review Magazine states: “Due to opportunities for research, Dr. Pruthi became first attracted to this IoT space rooted in wireless and wire line communications and communication control systems. He learned that for this new revolution to succeed, two important aspects are to be focused upon. One aspect would be pathway measurement for unrestricted flow in communication. The other feature is security, as there is a need to ensure that the transactions are not subject to be hijacked and misused. NIKSUN continues to work on these two aspects, with an aim to establish operational efficiency in the IoT domain.”
“In the upcoming years, IoT verticals such as industrial automation, automotive advances, smart grid, manufacturing, distribution and logistics will be our areas of focus,” says Dr. Parag Pruthi, NIKSUN Founder, Chairman & CEO. “These industries are employing IoT services faster than others.”
NIKSUN positions itself within the IoT space by monitoring and securing unique traffic end-to-end. By capturing, storing and performing forensics on all network traffic at line speeds up to 100 Gbps, NIKSUN plans to ensure that the Internet of Things revolution succeeds, unencumbered by misuse and malicious activity.
