Strengths include the ability to reconstruct web pages, but also chat logs, emails and any data that occurs on the background of a website. It also has the ability to search and filter through packets for unencrypted identification information (such as credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, and so forth), and figure out which computer it is coming from.

Princeton, NJ, August 11, 2010

NIKSUN®, Inc., the leading provider of real-time network performance monitoring, security surveillance, forensic analysis, and compliance solutions, is pleased to announce today that SC Magazine has rated NIKSUN’s latest NetDetector/NetVCR Alpine 4.0 solution five stars out of five across the board in all six categories: Features, Ease of Use, Performance, Documentation, Support, and Value for the Money.

SC Magazine reviewers called the installation and setup of the device “straightforward,” remarking, “We had the NetDetector up and running in less than an hour. No software installation was needed since everything was run from the hardware device.”

On performance, reviewers noted that the NetDetector/NetVCR Alpine 4.0 “performed well and ran quickly and smoothly.”

Kudos were given to the NIKSUN support team, providing reviewers with “a very pleasant experience,” as well as NetDetector/NetVCR’s documentation which reviewers described as “excellent.”

Since 1997 NIKSUN products have continuously evolved to meet the demands of the cybercrime phenomenon, which is evolving equally as fast. "For years, we have been working diligently to add deeper and richer data mining capabilities into NetDetector. Given the latest headlines related to cybersecurity and leakage of data, the release of NetDetector/NetVCR Alpine 4.0 is very timely. Many of our customers who have had a preview of this release have already acknowledged that this represents the most advanced product in the market,” said Dr. Parag Pruthi, NIKSUN Founder and CEO.

Value for the Money, as with all other categories, was awarded five stars. “Based on customer demand to provide a smaller solid-state form factor for remote and departmental use, our IntelliSeries versions of these products, which will be announced soon, are attractively priced and work in conjunction with the NIKSUN enterprise solution providing complete coverage,” said Dr. Parag Pruthi. “Indeed, there is no other product out there that provides the analysis of so many applications, classification of so much data, and provides the ability to correlate vast amounts of information in real-time, period."

SC Magazine’s final verdict for NIKSUN’s NetDetector/NetVCR Alpine 4.0?  An overall rating of five stars out of five stars. SC Magazine’s technical reviewers summarized, “Overall, it does everything it says it can do, and there are a lot more excellent features available that we did not have space to show here.”
