PRINCETON, N.J., April 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NIKSUN®, a world leader in real-time enterprise network monitoring solutions, today announced that independent research firm Frost & Sullivan has awarded NIKSUN NetVCR® the 2011 Global Product Quality Leadership Award for Network Performance Monitoring.
NIKSUN NetVCR continuously monitors both inbound and outbound traffic, applications, and services at real-time production traffic rates, simultaneously capturing, time-stamping, and indexing full-packets for zero loss monitoring of enterprise, carrier, and ISP networks and services. Each packet is analyzed in real-time at line speed and alerts immediately inform users of service interruptions or network/application slowdowns as soon as they occur. Each alert is linked to corresponding packet information, giving users the option to immediately zoom down to the sub-millisecond level and initiate deep-packet transaction content inspection, troubleshooting, and root-cause discovery.
"With a highly fragmented network performance monitoring market, NIKSUN's NetVCR stood out among competing products in best practices criteria for managing today's demanding service delivery environments," said Mariano Kimbara, Research Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. "We selected NIKSUN NetVCR because of its differentiated leadership in performance, design, and usability. The NIKSUN technology also demonstrates exceptional vision in scalability that enterprises and service providers need."
Frost & Sullivan independent research shows that network traffic is becoming more disintegrated in nature and requires significant bandwidth due to the increase in data and multimedia traffic volumes. Frost & Sullivan notes that it becomes necessary to manage this requirement by getting in-depth awareness of network traffic to optimize management solutions and applications in order to meet end user requirements. Hence, a key challenge in network performance monitoring is the ability to capture, organize, and analyze all data packets continually in real-time and for later use. This award recognizes the differentiated product offering of the recipient's technology. Frost & Sullivan industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
"We are pleased and honored to accept Frost & Sullivan's prestigious award for NIKSUN NetVCR product," said Dr. Parag Pruthi, Founder, CEO, and Chairman for NIKSUN. "As today's bandwidth increases exponentially, NIKSUN NetVCR easily scales to meet that increasing demand and provide seamless control over your network. Our continued investment in R&D and commitment to our customers allows NIKSUN to offer a scalable architecture in both network monitoring and security surveillance without having to 'rip and replace' existing systems."
Frost & Sullivan joins the ranks of many others who have raved about the power of NIKSUN NetVCR. As Paul Venezia, Senior Contributing Editor of the InfoWorld Test Center says, "Overall, NetVCR is the most powerful network analysis tool I've seen. The scope of the reporting and analysis engines within the user interface is broad, and the data it collects is quite useful. If you need to know everything about your network, take a good look at the NetVCR."
