The NIKSUN Story: Know the Unknown

Today’s increasing network complexity, growing obfuscation techniques, and exploding multimedia traffic volumes are bringing a host of next-generation problems from zero-day exploits, targeted malware and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), to service level disruptions and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance issues. In particular, the nature and frequency of cyber attacks are fundamentally changing the cyber security landscape. WikiLeaks, Operation Aurora (Google), Night Dragon, and other high profile attacks on an unprecedented scale with extraordinary sophistication.

In today’s changing IT environment, the single biggest challenge in solving these problems is gaining actionable insight on the dizzying array of unknowns associated with each security attack or performance issue. Deeply committed to his passion of helping organizations solve these problems, Dr. Parag Pruthi’s visionary leadership and focus on innovation has guided NIKSUN from start-up to revolutionizing the network monitoring industry. Based on his doctoral research to model high variability phenomenon in networking, Dr. Pruthi along with notable colleagues developed a revolutionary approach of analyzing network traffic to essentially record everything and know anything traversing the network.


Today, NIKSUN is the only network monitoring solution that can simultaneously capture, inspect, mine, correlate, and store everything traversing the network at multi-gigabit rates, gaining the deepest insight of security threats, performance issues, and compliance risks. Using a single console, NIKSUN also provides 93% analysis and visibility across networks, providing incredible power with a simple click and real-time contextual visibility.
