MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the network visibility market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes NIKSUN with the 2015 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Line Strategy Leadership. With NIKSUN's broad product portfolio, the company is in a solid position to serve customers in the network visibility market. NIKSUN is focused on real-time analysis, thus assisting customers to instantly Know the Unknown® in their cyber environment.
NIKSUN presents a plethora of network visibility products that specifically support cyber security, mobility and performance of multi-use networks. Its flagship security solution, NIKSUN NetDetector®, integrates lossless packet capture, metadata generation and real-time indexing into one appliance. It is the world's first packet-capture-to-disk appliance for cyber security monitoring, now offered alongside its own suite of NIKSUN cyber security solutions.
NIKSUN's best-in-class performance monitoring system, NIKSUN NetVCR®, delivers advanced real-time network, service and performance monitoring. Another one-of-a-kind offering is NIKSUN NetMobility®, which presents tightly integrated security and performance monitoring in a single appliance unit for carriers and service providers. NIKSUN NetMobility offers critical, real-time knowledge into subscriber behaviors, cyber threats and performance of 4G LTE and its preceding 3G networks. Lastly, NIKSUN's most recent system, Supreme Eagle®, a single hardware platform, once again raised the bar for innovation by delivering unmatched modular and scalable recording with analysis speeds of more than 100 Gbps.
"NIKSUN's greatest competitive edge is its effortless ability to scale. It designs and makes its own modular hardware and software, from motherboards to operating systems, to scale across networks ranging from 20 Gbps to over 100 Gbps," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Sujan Sami. "Additionally, it allows customers to easily customize their hardware to their storage needs and operating environments. As a result, customers can lower the costs and time associated with network protection and optimization by scaling at their own pace."
NIKSUN's devices feature a plug-in architecture that enables any new protocol to be automatically included in existing products, permitting customers to access them with an easy software update. Furthermore, its appliances capture, analyze and correlate packets with metadata into the Network Knowledge Warehouse (NKW), which serves as a powerhouse of information, hierarchically indexing it for on-demand performance and security deep dive forensics analysis.
NIKSUN's dynamic application recognition (DAR) mechanism is extremely helpful in categorizing any number of handsets and devices using the network. DAR is leveraged for the fast processing and securing of vast amounts of data, with deep extraction of network packet content. A wide range of multimedia content can be reconstructed from historical network traffic to aid in the continuous detection or reconstruction of harmful applications and malware.
"Significantly, NIKSUN presents their customers with an exceptional user experience by helping them create their own dashboards and reports," noted Sami. "Its solutions make information available on user experience and user usage, which is stored for perpetuity. Customers can further build on that information by zooming in on regions with metadata and packets of interest. The moment a key performance indicator (KPI) and/or firewall is breached, real-time alarms alert designated users, reducing service impact and facilitating a faster resolution."
Acknowledging its highly user-friendly and comprehensive network visibility solutions, Frost & Sullivan is pleased to present NIKSUN with the 2015 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Line Strategy Leadership.
