Princeton, NJ, May 30, 2013 — NIKSUN® Inc., the world leader in real-time monitoring and cyber forensics solutions, announced today the release of its new Alpine 4.3 boosting NIKSUN’s award winning suite of security and performance management solutions to provide customers with even more advanced technology to ensure network security and optimal network performance.
“With 4.3 Alpine, we have provided the ability for security and network analysts to gain deep insights into their infrastructure communication,” said Chris Mac-Stoker, Distinguished Engineer and Executive Director, NIKSUN Product Management. “We continue to break through old boundaries to provide the world’s fastest security event identification and detection, making it easy to see beyond the known.”
NIKSUN’s 4.3 release of Alpine provides a constant eye on the wire, examining all data from multiple perspectives, gathering intelligence from every packet and providing insight with context. No event, no matter how small, escapes the notice of NIKSUN’s 4.3 Alpine technology.
New alarms detect suspicious connections that could contain malicious traffic or reveal botnet-like behavior. The fight against zero day attacks has been kicked up several notches so that recognition of malicious content coming into the network happens before damage can be done. No longer can malicious users masquerade behind innocuous proxy connections. Things that would hide in the shadows are exposed quickly, efficiently, and completely.
Mobile networks are just as vulnerable to attacks as wired networks. Hackers can hide malware behind obfuscated communication techniques that prevent pure insight into network traffic patterns. NIKSUN’s 4.3 Alpine release provides insight into 3G and 4G cellular networks that breaks down barriers and provides perspicuity into traffic flows so data can be entirely tracked from its originating source to its ultimate destination.
The cost of cybercrime is growing exponentially. General Keith Alexander, Director of the National Security Agency (NSA) and Chief at the Central Security Service (CSS), characterized cybercrime as “the greatest transfer of wealth in history.” NIKSUN’s 4.3 Alpine nables you to see beyond the known, to “know the unknown,” and helps prevent the illegitimate transfer of any intellectual or proprietary assets so NIKSUN’s customers are not victims of “the greatest transfer of wealth in history.”
