PRINCETON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NIKSUN® Inc., the world leader in developing real-time and forensics-based cyber security and network performance monitoring solutions, is pleased to announce that SC Magazine has rated NIKSUN at the top of the cyber security industry in its SC Lab Approved “one year later” review. After receiving SC Magazine’s 5-star review in 2016, NIKSUN NetDetectorLive has once again proven its competitive advantages over any other solution. According to Dr. Peter Stephenson, Chief Technology Editor at SC Magazine, NIKSUN NetDetectorLive “Is as close to a one-tool network forensics device as we’ve seen. Network forensics is a tough bone to chew. It generally takes several individual tools.” For example, when it comes to data leakage prevention, Dr. Stephenson finds that “[NetDetectorLive] identifies exfiltration and reconstructs the entire exfiltration process with all the indicators: users, IPs, domains, data exfiltrated, method of exfiltration, among other things.” He continues, “You can step through the event for a complete analysis from the collected and forensically preserved data.” In other examples, Dr. Stephenson says, “We look at such things as packet captures, source and destination IP/domain analysis, payload analysis, and the results of several threat intelligence feeds. NetDetectorLive does all of that for you and it retains the complete information package in a forensically sound manner for future reconstruction to show repeatability and for presentation in court if necessary. In short, this is a complete network security/forensic analysis tool with the added benefit that it can alert you when a policy has been violated.” The review also highlighted NIKSUN’s ability to reconstruct “hundreds of applications,” which Dr. Stephenson called “better than just about any other tool we’ve used” and “the product’s greatest strength” in addition to policy and rule sets. Along with NIKSUN’s support, which he points out is “At the top of our positive response. We never have had to wait more than a couple of hours regardless of the complexity of the problem,” he found NIKSUN to be exceptionally robust with the ability to “scale to tens of terabytes with possibility of external storage arrays to extend well beyond that.” Similarly, he was impressed by NetDetectorLive’s ability to operate anywhere up to and beyond 100 Gbps, meaning it can “drink from just about any firehose you want.” 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. About NIKSUN, Inc.
