NIKSUN® Inc., the world leader in developing holistic cybersecurity and network performance monitoring solutions, is pleased to announce today that it has been named the Frost & Sullivan 2020 Customer Value Leader in the Network Forensics Industry. The Frost & Sullivan Customer Value Leadership Award compared NIKSUN against market-leading vendors on key criteria, such as functionality and features, perceived value, and customer service experience.
In this independent report, NIKSUN was recognized for its scalability, flexibility, and efficiency. The Frost & Sullivan analysis noted, “NIKSUN continues to prove its technology leadership through its ongoing innovation. Building on its award-winning Network Knowledge Warehouse (NKW), the company delivers a holistic “deep dive” solution. One of the significant challenges facing network forensics is its inability to identify problems past the issue location. LogWave™, an industry-leading security information and event management (SIEM) engine, ingests any log and event to deliver end-to-end root cause analytics, identifying additional information on the issue.”
“Rather than approaching cybersecurity as a simple problem that requires a one-and-done solution, NIKSUN understands it is a constantly evolving industry that gains strength with each new technology iteration. As a result, NIKSUN approaches its technology from a holistic standpoint, ensuring its solutions rise to meet new challenges,” says Rohan Thomas, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan. ” The company further delivers on its value proposition through its innovative features, such as real-time and historical analyses, seamless interoperability, and flexibility as a stand-alone or add-on solution. NIKSUN’s SIEM engine correlates logs and events with the NKW, strengthening its root-cause detection efficiency and accuracy.”
This report highlights NIKSUN’s entrepreneurial environment that empowers its engineers to think creatively out-of-the-box, thus fostering the perfect atmosphere to develop solutions that defend data from potential unexploited threats. This approach is quite instrumental in NIKSUN’s breakthrough innovation, the NIKSUN® LogWave™, a security information and event management (SIEM) engine that delivers real-time security alert analysis generated by applications and services. The SIEM’s recording, aggregating, and indexing correlate the logs and events with network information in the NKW, expediting the root-cause analysis of any security or performance incident. Scalable to meet the demands of its end-users, the LogWave is a cost-effective solution that offers significant storage capabilities while simultaneously satisfying compliance requirements for log retention.
“NIKSUN designs its products and services to maximize value for its customers, ensuring they achieve a quick return-on-investment and lowered costs. LogWave’s features, such as real-time and historical analyses, its interoperability with NIKSUN’s previous technology iterations, and its reduced time-to-resolution build on the company’s value proposition. Furthermore, LogWave’s plug-and-play architecture streamlines integration, avoiding the rigorous and costly task of creating a whole new system,” said Rohan Thomas, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan.
NIKSUN solutions offer indexing, analyzing, and real-time alerting from a single NIKSUN unit. Combined with an intuitive graphic user interface, an extensive online library of training modules, and a versatile yet comprehensive technical support model, NIKSUN delivers truly outstanding service and an unparalleled user experience.
“We are honored to receive this award that validates our product-led strategy and our commitment to excellence,” says Dr. Parag Pruthi, CEO and Founder of NIKSUN. “Our unmatched quality, high-performance, innovative, and revolutionary products are here today to better equip you for tomorrow.”
