NIKSUN Unveils Long-awaited Puma Portable Unit
Fully functional network performance, security and compliance monitoring solution in a small and lightweight chassis that can be deployed anywhere

San Francisco, CA, June 29, 2009 - NIKSUN, Inc., a world leader in real-time enterprise network surveillance solutions announced the release of their latest product, Puma, a portable network monitoring appliance, at the Cisco Live! 2009 show at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The ready-to-deploy & lightweight transportable unit offers customers a complete range of network security and performance monitoring tools that track, capture and analyze the root-cause of any network performance issue or security incident on the go.

With NIKSUN Puma, organizations can leverage NIKSUN's state-of-the-art network performance, security and compliance monitoring technology as a robust luggable appliance that can be conveniently used in the field. Travel-friendly, Puma easily fits into airplane cabin overhead compartments or can be checked as standard baggage.

Puma offers the exceptional functionality of NIKSUN's renowned solutions to field-personnel and deploys in a few short steps, enabling on-site analysis with localized recording and analysis. Data can be monitored at Gigabit line-rates and with terabytes of storage. Although the primary function of Puma is  holistic network monitoring and troubleshooting, sufficient data can be gathered over days or weeks to help with security forensics, lawful intercept, policy compliance monitoring, capacity planning, bandwidth management, latency monitoring and benchmarking.
