Date: Monday , November 04, 2013
Contemporary IP networks have become strategic lifelines which provide connectivity for critical infrastructure management tools that control structures like electric power grids, oil pipelines, water systems, and other essential services. These networks also act as a path for financial transactions that are the lifeblood of the global economy. Because of the underlying structure and complexity of these networks, they are vulnerable to malicious activity through cyber attacks which have seen an unprecedented rate of evolution. Addressing such breaches is NIKSUN, a Princeton, NJ headquartered company that develops a highly scalable array of real time and forensics-based cyber security and network performance management solutions for government and intelligence agencies, service providers, financial services companies and large enterprises such as retailers and manufacturers.
