Published on: 08-08-2017
Princeton, NJ - August 8, 2017 - NIKSUN® Inc., the world leader in developing real-time and forensics-based cyber security and network performance monitoring solutions, is pleased to announce that the company has been rated at an industry-leading 9.7 out of 10 in a recent independent research study conducted by Frost & Sullivan. Beating out its competitors by a wide margin in both technology and customer impact, NIKSUN was also awarded Frost & Sullivan’s highly competitive Enabling Technology Leadership Award for network security forensics.
The award was given to NIKSUN after a series of rigorous analysis. On the product side, Frost & Sullivan focused on innovation, creativity, efficiency, commercialization, and application diversity. On the consumer side, judgement was based on price and performance value, service experience, brand equity, and customer return rates.
Frost & Sullivan recognized efficiencies across the security stack and in the collection process, noting that NIKSUN's Supreme Eagle utilizes 1/10th the rack space of competing solutions and significantly cuts down on power, cooling, and space requirements.
"Our analysts were extremely impressed by NIKSUN's new super-fast data-in-motion analytics platform, NikOS Everest," said Christopher Kissel, Sr. Analyst, Cybersecurity at Frost & Sullivan. "NikOS Everest finally solves the long-standing problem in this industry: finding the needle in the haystack of data. While NIKSUN has always let you capture and store every packet of data, without loss, they have now made real-time analysis and deep-dive investigation incredibly easy, intuitive, and fast." Because of the NikOS platform, in one case study, NIKSUN's solution demonstrated a 505% increase in cyber security incident resolution efficiency.
Christopher continued, "NikOS Everest operates with a Google-like search where all a user has to do is type in plain English to be immediately greeted with real, actionable information. The robustness of NIKSUN's architecture means that this search gives you the who, what, where, when, and how for every cyber security or network performance incident."
For example, NIKSUN's solution could have prevented the infamous Target breach and saved customers massive costs associated with lost assets, intellectual property, and personally identifiable information.
The report also distinguished NIKSUN’s solutions as highly flexible and scalable, having been tested all the way up to 10 Tbps and 50 PB of storage. Special attention was paid to NIKSUN's ability to offer cyber security and performance monitoring for standard, mobile, financial, and virtual networks with the same super-fast and robust NIKSUN Knowledge Warehouse (NKW), which performs full data capture and stores metadata, alarms, events, and analysis all together for quick searching.
NIKSUN's innovative solution can be used for counter-intelligence, malware and insider/outsider intrusion detection, and protection of critical cyber infrastructure. It is also essential to zero-day investigation, denial-of-service attack prevention, retroactive analysis, lawful intercept, performance monitoring, policy compliance, and more.
