Dr. Parag Pruthi to Present at AT&T Cyber Security Conference

NIKSUN® Inc., the world leader in real-time and forensics-based cybersecurity and network monitoring solutions, announced today that NIKSUN’s Founder, Chairman, and CEO, Dr. Parag Pruthi is invited to speak at the 16th Annual AT&T Cyber Security Conference to address cyber security issues in current and future networks. Located at the New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square, the cyber convergence will exhibit other notable security experts.

Dr. Pruthi’s talk is timely, as NIKSUN Headquarters is ready to reveal solutions for the networks of today and tomorrow. In the cyber security and performance climate, it is important to recognize that a bad thing could happen in an instant. Moreover, a breach can happen to anyone. Being armed with as much information as possible can be the most important factor in addressing the security issues in today’s changing climate of Big Data, Cloud Computing and the Internet of Things (IoT).

On the morning of September 4th, Dr. Parag Pruthi will deliver his lively presentation, “An Ounce of Evidence.” He will focus on the highly sophisticated malware that is currently being designed, developed and distributed for penetration, surveying and the successful exfiltration of data from networks. To provide an answer and some advice on securing the network at hand, Dr. Pruthi will outline the discovery of the breach, and then begin the investigative work with the ounce of evidence left behind.

Dr. Pruthi will emphasize how to prevent future attacks and breaches while strengthening the network itself, thereby furthering NIKSUN’s ultimate goal: to enable customers to build a secure and robust global IP infrastructure.

Through his presentation, Dr. Pruthi will demonstrate to those in attendance, how an ounce of evidence is worth more than a pound of raw data.

By pinpointing the root-cause and exposing hidden weaknesses in production systems, Dr. Pruthi’s methodology and the capabilities of Alpine 4.5 will not only strengthen the infrastructure of the network breached, but will prevent further exploitation of inherent vulnerabilities.

Because cyber attacks have evolved to become sponsored by state institutions, cyber weaponry has become increasingly advanced and refined. The future has caught up with the reality of today. Even those who consider themselves to be highly guarded and strongly protected are now at risk. As technological developments evolve and hackers become more skillful, increasingly sophisticated cyber security issues and breaches are inevitable. Sometimes, it’s a matter of asking what level of network vulnerability is acceptable.

NIKSUN uses Big Data analytics to find the solutions to breaches and attacks. Because there is no perfect network, and there never will be, Dr. Pruthi and the NIKSUN team aim to find the solutions to vulnerabilities both quickly, and efficiently. Having just unveiled the industry advanced solution, Alpine 4.5, NIKSUN is building the security and performance sky scraper in the ever-growing world of Cloud Computing, Big Data and the IoT. NIKSUN’s innovative Alpine 4.5 solution addresses today’s “Always Online” generation.

The conference will open on September 3rd and conclude on September 4th. The first day is strictly for workshop purposes, whereas the final day is reserved for the invited presenters. Registration for the conference is free, and allows visitors to gain hands-on technical training from the top cyber security practitioners. The AT&T Cyber Security Conference offers insight into the security industry’s latest technology, emerging challenges and best practices. If gaining the insight for inventive security ideas and solutions for current and future cloud and mobility crises isn’t enough, take a break from the conference and enjoy the finest sights New York City has to offer.

NIKSUN hopes to see you there!

Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
