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!
