NIKSUN Receives 5-Star Review from SC Magazine's 2016 Cyberforensics Group Test

Published on: 10-04-2016

Princeton, NJ, Oct 04, 2016 – NIKSUN® Inc., the world leader in developing real-time and forensics-based cyber security and network performance monitoring solutions, announced today that NIKSUN's NetDetectorLive has received 5-stars out of 5-stars for its network forensics technology and new "Google-like" interface for the network. In addition, NIKSUN's NetDetectorLive earned their prestigious “Lab Approved” endorsement.

"NIKSUN has been a staple in our lab for several years and has always been one of our dependable workhorses. This latest version is no exception,” the review said." Again this year we bring the NetDetectorLive into the lab as SC Lab Approved, our highest award."

NIKSUN's new NikOS Everest GUI has also been a big hit with early adopter customers, providing a much simpler and smarter way to mine data from the NIKSUN Knowledge Warehouse (NKW), whether it be local on a NIKSUN Appliance or Remote via NIKSUN NetOmni.

"NIKSUN now supports a slick UI called NikOS Everest – web based – that allows the user to create whatever desktop he or she wants. That means any desktop. Since the product sees everything as a report, all you need to do is drag in what you want – onto the screen, with no icons or code to write – and save it as your own report," the review said. "Once you have the screens you want - and they may include the NIKSUN out-of-the-box reports – you have a fully customized UI to meet your needs. That could include specialized monitors that have your custom drill downs."

"For the first time in history, businesses of all sizes and expertise can simply "Google" for the information that NIKSUN aggregates for them and have the most relevant data appear at their fingertips within seconds," said Dr. Parag Pruthi, Founder & CEO of NIKSUN. "It's just that easy – no longer is our field only the domain of the experts – every company and government is now only one search away from detecting and resolving malicious activity on our networks."

In addition to NIKSUN's one-click approach to viewing data with its new NIKSUN NikOS Everest release, reviewers at SC Magazine appreciated NetDetectorLive's deep and quick forensics. "We hoped NetDetector would give us a deeper dive into what the bad guys were doing as they attacked and probed us. We were not disappointed," the review said. "Drill-downs got us exactly where we wanted to be and we were able to collect some interesting artifacts. Since we can reproduce an attack down to the bit level, we had about as good a picture as you’re likely to get."

They continued, "We can say with pretty firm assurance that just about anything you have in your SOC will give you more in the context of NetDetectorLive." Read the entire review here or check out SC Magazine's website.
