Princeton, NJ, October 4, 2010 – NIKSUN, Inc., a world leader in real-time enterprise network surveillance solutions, today announced the release of its new and powerful Alpine software for its network appliances. With this announcement, NIKSUN takes another step forward in delivering smart, innovative, state-of-the-art technology ready to combat cyber security threats, provide end-to-end surveillance and deliver value to its customers by leveraging Web 2.0 technologies for a rich and dynamic user experience.
NIKSUN Alpine delivers unique and rapid visualization and reporting capabilities to end users with its fully customizable views and highly adaptable data analysis and charting features. Built on the powerful and patented NIKSUN analytic engine, more commonly known as the NIKSUN Knowledge Warehouse (NKW), the Alpine software exploits the full strength of analytics provided by the NKW by presenting data to customers in new and compelling forms. The user interface is clean, simple and efficient, as well as highly interactive and potent. The unique service-oriented architecture, combined with the award-winning analytics engine, empowers the end user to mine the rich NIKSUN NKW and visualize the data using a variety of charts, tables, and visual elements in line with business goals. Lines of business and different user groups can now build custom dashboards specific to their applications and services with minimal overhead.
Along with the advanced visualization capability, the Alpine release also introduces a significant number of additional features and application analysis tools. Most notably financial protocol and transaction analytics, wireless services analytics, and major advances in application reconstruction and deep forensics capabilities are introduced. The newly introduced “Cover Flow-like” view is a keenly powerful way of viewing reconstructed applications and provides a bird’s eye view for session reconstruction and replay. In addition to ease of analysis, users are further empowered with a plug-in architecture allowing them to customize the solution to their needs; as an example, users are able to write their own custom expert modules with NIKSUN’s NetXperts.
“One of our focus areas in recent times has been in harnessing the depth and breadth of intelligence in our analytics engine in a completely user customizable form,” said Dr.Parag Pruthi, CEO and Founder of NIKSUN. “We have achieved this goal with the Alpine release and in the process brought significant agility and business value to our customers. This is a major first step in our commitment to present our users with advanced, intuitive, and user-customizable visual analytics. Due to the decoupled and modular architecture in the Alpine release, we will now be able to release new features and functions at a rapid pace. Ability to react fast is necessary to keep ahead of the plethora of attacks in the new cyber environment and the Alpine release allows us to do just that.”
