NIKSUN Unveils Next-Generation Network-Wide Monitoring Platform
PRINCETON, N.J., May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — NIKSUNÃ‚®, a world leader in real-time enterprise network monitoring solutions, today unveiled NIKSUN NetOmni Alpine – its next-generation network-wide security and performance monitoring platform. NetOmni is the first network-wide monitoring platform built on NIKSUN’s Alpine technology, the world’s most scalable and modular technology designed specifically for large-scale network monitoring.
Today’s changing IT environment is bringing a plethora of next-generation problems such as zero-day exploits, targeted malware, application outages, and compliance violations, threatening critical infrastructure and service delivery quality. And the single biggest challenge in solving these problems is gaining actionable insight into the dizzying array of unknowns associated with each security attack or performance issue. NetOmni is the only network-wide monitoring platform that provides organizations with the power to instantly know the unknown. Based on the most advanced data warehousing technology, organizations can simultaneously capture, correlate, and analyze all enterprise data-in-motion at multi-gigabit rates across heterogeneous networks, providing true 100% situational awareness and gaining the deepest insight of security threats, performance issues, and compliance risks.
According to Gartner analysts John Pescatore and Lawrence Orans, “Businesses have a number of use cases that drive the need to replay and analyze events that occurred across corporate networks. …Some organizations take a more ‘lean forward’ approach to investigate network events on a proactive basis to stay ahead of potential incidents.” (Network Forensics Market, John Pescatore and Lawrence Orans, Gartner, Inc., 26 March 2010).
Successful network-wide monitoring in today’s connected world also requires comprehensive and actionable views of next-generation challenges, while tightly controlling user access to certain information. Through the most flexible web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), NetOmni offers 360 degree visualization and analytics that allow organizations to not only easily visualize alarms and reports, but perform granular drill-down analysis to establish root-cause remediation of security threats, performance issues, and compliance risks. NetOmni also securely manages network-wide intelligence using a robust Single Sign On (SSO) mechanism and highly configurable role-based access control (RBAC), providing complete control to deliver the right information to the right people across heterogeneous networks.
“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 (APTs), to service level disruptions and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance,” said Dr. Parag Pruthi, Founder, Chairman and CEO of NIKSUN. “Traditional tools to help organizations deal with these problems across heterogeneous networks do not provide the power to known the unknown. NetOmni Alpine is the only network-wide monitoring solution that brings together total intelligence, unlimited visibility, and complete control into a single, easy to deploy and easy to use console.”
NetOmni Alpine is available in three packages: Reporting, Analytics, and Full Suite.
