NIKSUN Unveils LogWave, a Next-Generation Security Information and Event Management Solution
LogWave Provides Correlation, Aggregation & Analytics of Logs and Events with All Other Network Data for Deep and Fast Discovery of Operational / Cyber Threats and Incidents
NIKSUN, Inc.,the world leader in developing holistic cybersecurity and network performance monitoring solutions, is pleased to announce that its highly anticipated Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution, NIKSUN LogWave™, is now available.
“Network analytics for security and performance only takes us as far as identifying the device or system (server, router, etc.) where the problem resides”
NIKSUN LogWave is an advanced log and event analytics engine that provides real-time analysis of security alerts generated by applications or services. It ingests hundreds of log and event types into the NIKSUN Network Knowledge Warehouse (NKW), and quickly retrieves them, for powerful and reliable root-cause analytics while satisfying compliance requirements for log retention.
“Network analytics for security and performance only takes us as far as identifying the device or system (server, router, etc.) where the problem resides,” said Dr. Parag Pruthi, Founder, Chairman & CEO of NIKSUN. “With the availability of NIKSUN LogWave, now our customers can pinpoint operational or security incidents in a click to the application or service on a device such as a router, firewall, client, end user, etc. This new data source also gives us access around encrypted network flows as the logs on the server or end device can now be correlated with network observations, behavior, and anomalies.”
“Furthermore, the end user can automate discovery and rapid remediation with precision using NIKSUN’s holistic automation engine in the NIKSUN Everest platform. This leads to tremendous savings in operational and containment costs,” Dr. Pruthi added.
Compliance requirements demand that logs should be stored for a period of time. Using logs as another source of information not only satisfies compliance requirements but also assists with root-cause analysis. The ability to store and search on logs and events provides end-to-end intelligence for security and operational analytics. NIKSUN LogWave allows analysts to reduce their mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR) even further and achieve true network visibility like never before.
NIKSUN LogWave scales to meet any organization’s needs, large or small, and is available as a cloud service, virtual machine, or physical appliance. It is a cost-effective solution for achieving maximum visibility into the network by monitoring and analyzing endpoints. LogWave can store data for days, months, or even years, in the order of hundreds of gigabytes all the way up to petabytes. LogWave’s scalable technology is able to aggregate, correlate, and search up to hundreds of petabytes today and its limits are continuously furthered by NIKSUN’s top notch research and development team. It seamlessly ingests logs and immediately provides actionable information from the generated metadata and correlates that data with any other data in the NIKSUN ecosystem.
LogWave is customizable to meet one’s distinct requirements. Through NIKSUN’s centralized management and operations platform, NetOmni™, multiple LogWave instances can be easily accessed in a grid manner providing actionable data and reporting across the entire network, even across physical-cloud hybrid environments. NIKSUN LogWave is offered as a standalone product or as an add-on module to any NIKSUN appliance.
With the availability of LogWave, users are fully equipped to search and precisely pinpoint the root-cause of all incidents across all their data sources – Packets, Flow, SNMP, Logs, and Events. Finally, effective and precise automation with Machine Learning (ML) / Artificial Intelligence (AI), which has been a long-standing challenge in cybersecurity and network operations, has become a reality.
“By use of NIKSUN’s holistic solutions the cost to an organization is substantially lowered and we estimate savings of more than 35% in capital and recurring annual operational expenditure,” said Sunny Pruthi, NIKSUN’s Product Manager for LogWave.
