NIKSUN, Inc., the world leader in developing holistic
cybersecurity and network performance monitoring solutions, is pleased to
announce today that its highly anticipated Security Information and
Event Management (SIEM) solution, NIKSUN LogWave™, is now available.

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.

“Network analytics for security and performance only takes us as far as
identifying the device or system (server, router, etc.) where the
problem resides,” said Dr. Parag Pruthi, Founder, Chairman & CEO of
NIKSUN. “With the availability of NIKSUN LogWave, now our customers can
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.”

“Furthermore, 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,” Dr. Pruthi added.

Compliance requirements demand that logs should be stored for a period
of time. Using logs as another source of information not only satisfies
compliance requirements but also assists with root-cause analysis. The
ability to store and search on logs and events provides end-to-end
intelligence for security and operational analytics. NIKSUN LogWave
allows analysts to reduce their mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR) even
further and achieve true network visibility like never before.

NIKSUN LogWave scales to meet any organization’s needs, large or small,
and is available as a cloud service, virtual machine, or physical
appliance. It is a cost-effective solution for achieving maximum
visibility into the network by monitoring and analyzing endpoints.
LogWave can store data for days, months, or even years, 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 and its limits are continuously furthered by NIKSUN’s
top notch research and development team. It seamlessly ingests logs and
immediately provides actionable information from the generated metadata
and correlates that data with any other data in the NIKSUN ecosystem.

LogWave is customizable to meet one’s distinct requirements. Through
NIKSUN’s centralized management and operations platform, NetOmni™,
multiple LogWave instances can be easily accessed in a grid manner
providing actionable data and reporting across the entire network, even
across physical-cloud hybrid environments. NIKSUN LogWave is offered as
a standalone product or as an add-on module to any NIKSUN appliance.

With the availability of LogWave, users are fully equipped to search and
precisely pinpoint the root-cause of all incidents across all their data
sources – Packets, Flow, SNMP, Logs, and Events. Finally, effective and
precise automation with Machine Learning (ML) / Artificial Intelligence
(AI), which has been a long-standing challenge in cybersecurity and
network operations, has become a reality.

“By use of NIKSUN’s holistic solutions the cost to an organization is
substantially lowered and we estimate savings of more than 35% in
capital and recurring annual operational expenditure,” said Sunny
Pruthi, NIKSUN’s Product Manager for LogWave.
