NIKSUN LogWave

A Next-generation Security Information and Event Management Solution


NIKSUN LogWave is an advanced log and event analytics engine that provides real-time analysis of security alerts generated by applications or services. It ingests hundreds of log and event types into the NIKSUN Network Knowledge Warehouse (NKW), and quickly retrieves them, for powerful and reliable root-cause analytics while satisfying compliance requirements for log retention.

With the availability of LogWave, NIKSUN is the only company that allows organizations to correlate and rapidly search data across all sources - Packets, Flow, SNMP, Logs, & Events.

The Necessity


Network analytics for security and performance can only identify the device or system (server, router, etc.) where the problem resides. NIKSUN LogWave allows its users to pinpoint operational or security incidents in a click to the application or service on a device such as a router, firewall, client, end user, etc. This new data source also gives us access around encrypted network flows as the logs on the server or end device can now be correlated with network observations, behavior, and anomalies.


Finally, the end user can automate discovery and rapid remediation with precision using NIKSUN’s holistic automation engine in the NIKSUN Everest platform. This leads to tremendous savings in operational and containment costs.

Flexibility and Scalability


NIKSUN LogWave scales to meet any organization's needs, large or small. It can store log and event data in the order of hundreds of gigabytes all the way up to petabytes. LogWave's scalable technology is able to aggregate, correlate and search up to hundreds of petabytes today.


LogWave seamlessly ingests logs and immediately gives actionable information from the generated metadata and correlates that data with any other data in the NIKSUN ecosystem.


Through NIKSUN NetOmni, multiple LogWave units can be easily accessed in a grid manner providing actionable data and reporting across the entire network, even across physical-cloud hybrid environments.
