From Skeptics to Believers: the Dexterity behind NIKSUN Supreme Eagle

Published on: 10-15-2015

Princeton, NJ, October 15, 2015 - NIKSUN® has once again raised the industry bar with its latest product offering, Supreme Eagle® licensed with NetDetectorLive. Already recognized as a world leader in real-time and forensics-based cyber security and network performance monitoring solutions, NIKSUN is very pleased with SC Magazine’s first look review. Independently reviewed and tested by esteemed technology editor, Dr. Peter Stephenson, NIKSUN Supreme Eagle NetDetectorLive was found to defy the adage of "next-generation" products, as featured in the October issue of SC Magazine.

Upon learning about NIKSUN Supreme Eagle, a single hardware platform that delivers unmatched modular and scalable recording with analysis speeds over 100 Gbps, Dr. Stephenson initially greeted it with some degree of skepticism. Such uncertainty is justifiable - Supreme Eagle’s lossless packet capture rates are an industry first. The fundamental concept behind Supreme Eagle is so revolutionary, that it completely transforms traditional data capture and monitoring to ultimately redefine what a "next-generation" product should be. Dr. Stephenson’s skepticism was soon turned into that of belief – during the testing phase of the review process, not only had Supreme Eagle "performed flawlessly," but it didn’t drop a single packet. Coming from a strong pedigree of NIKSUN products and solutions, Supreme Eagle delivers an unprecedented solution at 15 times the current standard processing capacity while consuming 60% less power, all requiring 80% less rack space over any other industry solution.

Very rarely does a technology review not identify at least one engineering design flaw, or negate a specific product feature. However, SC Magazine’s first look review is filled with unbridled enthusiasm on Supreme Eagle’s remarkable speed, performance, flexibility and richness in features. On being asked to highlight some of Supreme Eagle NetDetectorLive’s greatest capabilities, they were unable to do so, because there simply wasn’t a single functionality that they didn’t like.

"NIKSUN is very happy to have received such high praise and recognition in SC Magazine’s first look review," states Dr. Parag Pruthi, Founder & CEO of NIKSUN, "Supreme Eagle not only readily meets the current demands of large data centers, but it exceeds requirements through the sheer genius of its engineers committed to a level of excellence in every aspect of system design and architecture."

Aside from the speed and functionality of Supreme Eagle, SC Magazine was notably impressed with its straightforward deployment and the additional on-site assistance through NIKSUN Support. Optimizing both grid and cluster computing, the core of this new NIKSUN hardware platform promotes what every NIKSUN solution is implemented for: the fastest incident prevention, containment and management to protect organizations of all sizes.

Despite the relatively short time since its market debut, numerous NIKSUN customers have already benefitted from the power of Supreme Eagle. Deployed in many large-scale networks and data centers, Supreme Eagle delivers network forensics at blistering line speeds, effortlessly scaling to over 100 Gbps – and is now in very high demand. As Dr. Stephenson recognizes: "If you have a large mission-critical data stream, you cannot afford not to give [Supreme Eagle] a close look."
