NIKSUN: Compelling Protection from Security Threats
Date: Wednesday , November 02, 2011
Accompanying today’s increasing network complexity and exploding multimedia traffic volumes are a host of next-generation problems from zero-day exploits, complex obfuscation techniques, targeted malware and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), along with service level disruptions and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance issues. “The nature and frequency of cyber attacks are fundamentally changing the cyber security landscape. WikiLeaks, Operation Aurora (Google), Night Dragon, and other high profile attacks are now occurring on an unprecedented scale with extraordinary sophistication,” says Dr. Parag Pruthi, Founder, Chairman & CEO, NIKSUN. The counter measures that companies take must also scale up to meet the increased level of sophistication of threats. This is where NIKSUN, a company that provides next-generation network monitoring solutions to secure critical infrastructure, optimize service delivery, and identify and rapidly resolve network performance issues, provides industry-leading solutions.
Founded in 1997 under Dr. Pruthi’s visionary leadership, NIKSUN has grown to a beckoning force within the network security and performance space. The company takes a forensic approach to security, capturing and revealing all traffic that moves over the network. NIKSUN’s product line includes enterprise-wide security surveillance and network monitoring products that manage and protect critical networks including wireless networks, providing both real-time analytics and deep forensic analysis.
With cloud computing and mobility driving the industry, the market for NIKSUN’s solutions continues to expand. NIKSUN, in the last three years, has undergone a massive expansion in its presence in the industry. The company today has over 1000 customers – including many of the world’s largest governments, intelligence services, financial institutions and service providers. It is expected to become a household name in the next 3-4 years — by having large scale deployments of its security products in enterprise networks around the world — and doubling its sales figures.
