Pros and Cons
  • "The unique selling point of NIKSUN is its ability to scale and its reporting capabilities. NIKSUN captures the packets at a very high speed, from one GB to 160 Gbps also. It offers report granularity in nanoseconds."
  • "NIKSUN is a passive solution. It provides you with you data, alerts, reports and the root cause of issues. However, it requires a person to make use of this functionality. If an event is happening and nobody attends to it, the effects of the event could be severe."

What is our primary use case?

NIKSUN offers two types of solutions. One is for performance management and the other is for forensics and cybersecurity. The solution provides reports in real time, as well as historical records. Every packet is stored, indexed and kept in the database. You can use the database to view events that have happened or set up real time alerts. NIKSUN provides you with the why, what, when and where type of answers to all your network problems.  NIKSUN's capabilities can be used in three main forms; a physical appliance, virtual appliance or using the cloud.

What is most valuable?

The unique selling point of NIKSUN is its ability to scale and its reporting capabilities. NIKSUN captures the packets at a very high speed, from one GB to 160 Gbps. It offers report granularity in nanoseconds. It is possible to pull a report with sub-second levels of intervals and filter the results as per your requirements.

What needs improvement?

NIKSUN is a passive solution. It provides you with you data, alerts, reports and the root cause of issues. However, it requires a person to make use of this functionality. If an event is happening and nobody attends to it, the effects of the event could be severe.  In future, it would be useful to have SOAR (Security, Orchestration and Automated Response) functionality. This would provide automation in the management of events. The after sale support for this solution could be improved. 

How are customer service and support?

The solution has a 24 hours help desk available but the team are not always able to provide a final resolution to a problem.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Neutral

What other advice do I have?

With cyber attacks becoming more sophisticated, the impact on a business can be devastating. This solution offers full packet capture meaning you don't need to solely reply on sampling. It offers a playback facility where you can go back in the time and dissect any event that has happened. This solution offers better insights than others on the market. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Amazon Web Services (AWS)
