Published on: 06-03-2013

Princeton, NJ, June 3, 2013 — NIKSUN® Inc., the world leader in real time and forensics-based cybersecurity and network monitoring solutions, is pleased to announce that NIKSUN´s NetDetector/NetVCR Alpine 4.2.1 has been awarded 5-stars by SC Magazine’s Forensics Product Review, calling the 4.2.1 offering “some of the most advanced software and hardware on the market.”

“We are pleased to receive another 5-star rating for our latest product release, a true testament to the dedication and hard work of our team,” said Dr. Parag Pruthi, NIKSUN Founder, Chairman, & CEO. “The continued thrust of innovation with a goal of developing a holistic and scalable solution is coming together quarter after quarter, year after year, release after release. While other companies tend to buy and acquire multiple technologies and then struggle for years in integrating them into a workable solution, NIKSUN’s continued, dedicated and passionate leadership in leveraging strategic foundational architecture is proving itself over and over again. Experienced leaders have recognized this as a true strength and recognize this as a core attribute of NIKSUN. They are not distracted by the changing winds of time, marketing hype does not sway them, and they recognize that if they are to win then they need to lay the right foundation to build upon. NIKSUN has not only provided that foundation, but has also continued to build upon it a solution so powerful that none other can compete. Buying different technologies and bolting it together is just not going to cut it. The problem is more fundamental and ‘bolted on infrastructure’ will come crumbling down at the next major storm. I am very pleased to see that SC Magazine, its editors and reviewers have the unique capability to understand this fundamental strength not easily recognized or understood by many.”

Reviewers of the product agree. With Alpine 4.2.1 NIKSUN has created the most powerful capture, detection, analytics, and proactive prevention all-in-one-solution with over 100 new features and enhancements integrated into this release. “The system provides many network resources that allow users to see a variety of details on the network, such as IP communication, cyber attack detection and packet monitoring,” stated SC Magazine reviewers. 

A noteworthy feature of the NetDetector/NetVCR Alpine 4.2.1 is its advanced application reconstruction capability, the process of restoring old packets on the network to reassemble programs in the application layer, allowing you to “go back in time” and investigate a security breach or a network mishap. Reviewers state that the product made this complicated process “simple,” adding, “It takes no longer than a few seconds before the user sees a complete reconstruction of the application that was used...”

“The NIKSUN NetDetector/NetVCR Alpine 4.2.1 is certainly worth the money as it provides the kind of granular control mechanisms necessary in monitoring network traffic,” the review states. “It is the perfect combination of power and efficiency, while maintaining a simple and smooth-running environment.”

Reviewers praised the “easy-to-use graphic user interface” with NIKSUN  NetDetector/NetVCR’s organized, labeled tabs that display all information quickly and easily. “The manner in which the information is presented is clear and precise. The user is able to switch quickly between information about network traffic, such as IP communication and security breaches. The overall interface of the product is user friendly and effortless to use,” SC Magazine reviewers stated.

NIKSUN NetDetector/NetVCR Alpine 4.2.1 is considered one of the most advanced hardware and software network monitoring solutions on the market because it handles the entire network, and can be used for cyber forensics as well as network and application performance monitoring. Reviewers state, “It records all information exchanged over the network while providing easy access to data charts representing the aggregation of network traffic. Forensically, the NetDetector allows a user to access information that is several years old.”

Further, reviewers praised the NIKSUN Knowledge Warehouse (NKW) technology, the central repository for capturing, mining, and processing all data on the network, and producing accurate results down to micro- and nano-second resolution. “The NKW's granular control mechanisms allow the system to gather data with the precision and accuracy necessary to accurately analyze the kind of detailed information that is exchanged,” SC Magazine reviewers stated.

NIKSUN plans to showcase its latest offering the NetDetector/NetVCR Alpine at its upcoming World Wide Security & Mobility Conference (WWSMC) in Atlantic City, NJ from June 24th — 27th. WWSMC ’13 brings together thought leaders and experts from different aspects of the security and mobile ecosystem. The World Wide Security & Mobility Conference (WWSMC) discusses and examines new approaches to address today's ever-growing cybersecurity threats. The conference includes global industry leaders, security and mobility experts, government officials, and academics.
