Published on: 09-07-2017

Princeton, NJ, Sept. 7, 2017 - NIKSUN Inc., the world leader in developing real-time and forensics-based cyber security and network performance monitoring solutions is proud to announce its designation as a Distinguished Vendor in the 2018 TAG Cyber Security Annual.

The inclusion of NIKSUN places it amongst a collection of leading cyber security vendors. According to the report, NIKSUN was chosen due to its capability to support full, zero loss "packet capture and analysis at extremely high network capacity rates." NIKSUN's revolutionary Supreme Eagle platform operates at an industry-leading 100 Gbps+.

Each member of the collective was hand-selected by Dr. Edward Amoroso, Founder and CEO of TAG Cyber and former CSO of AT&T. This year's report was made available today for free download at www.niksun.com. In it, Dr. Amoroso hailed NIKSUN’s Founder and CEO, Dr. Parag Pruthi, as "an inspiration for his vision of how cyber protections must evolve." As a result, Volume 2 of this year’s report also includes an informative interview with Dr. Pruthi about the state of cyber security.

"As a pioneer in cyber security, we are excited and proud to continue our support of Dr. Amoroso's goal of democratizing expert cyber security analysis," said Dr. Pruthi. "We also appreciate his and his team’s efforts in highlighting not only our unique network security and monitoring solutions but also our latest real-time and forensics-based big data analytics capabilities for cyber security and network performance."

"Dr. Pruthi and his team at NIKSUN work hard to achieve network forensics solutions with lossless packet capture," said Dr. Amoroso. "Building capture solutions that scale to over 100 Gbps without losing packets and developing an analytics platform that scales to such data rates are great accomplishments in technology and have been critical to NIKSUN’s success."

The 2018 TAG Cyber Security Annual was developed to assist enterprise security teams as they modernize their cyber risk program via the following three steps: Exploding the flat perimeter enterprise into distributed workloads; Offloading the resultant applications and networks onto cloud-based, software-defined infrastructure; and then Reloading protections using the best available cyber security technologies.

The report includes three volumes:

  • Volume 1: Outlook for Fifty Cyber Security Controls provides a detailed 2018 outlook on each of the fifty controls for both enterprise practitioners and cyber security vendors. Each of the fifty control outlooks was developed to help security teams optimize their programs.
  • Volume 2: Interviews with Cyber Luminaries includes in-depth conversations with the thought leaders and distinguished vendor principals to offer the expert guidance and cyber security insights.
