Inc., the world leader in real-time and forensics-based cybersecurity
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
Through his presentation, Dr. Pruthi will demonstrate to those in
attendance, how an ounce of evidence is worth more than a pound of raw
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
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
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!

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

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.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance). Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here
