Securia becomes a Canadian value added reseller of NIKSUN specialized security analysis and forensics product suite.

LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2009) - Securia, a Canadian value-added reseller and distributor of state-of-the-art IT security and compliance solutions, has signed an agreement with NIKSUN®, headquartered in New Jersey. NIKSUN provides high-end network-monitoring solutions for end-to-end, proactive security, compliance and application monitoring and caters to most major government organizations and Fortune 1000 companies globally.

The NIKSUN suite of network monitoring solutions, including the award winning NetDetector®, NetVCR®, and NetOMNI®, greatly enhances the range of security products already distributed by Securia; including S-Filer/Portal & Encryptor, Fortinet, ClockWare and ObserveIT. Securia has become a partner of choice for public, government agencies and private entities that are in search of global security solutions.

NIKSUN is quickly increasing its presence in Canada, both within public companies and governments looking for efficient and scalable network monitoring and forensics solutions. The reputation and knowhow of Securia in this field combined with the unique NIKSUN products bring a particularly impressive offering for large organizations looking to improve their security and compliance position.

"We are extremely pleased and excited to be partnering with a proven leader in the IT security and compliance space. We see Securia playing a major role in delivering to our clients not only a great family of products but more importantly the integration expertise of specialized security solutions to highly sophisticated customers," said Stan Joseph, NIKSUN's Regional Vice President, Sales, for US Federal and Canada.

NIKSUN's state-of-the-art network & security monitoring solutions offers the tools necessary to measure the scope of security breaches and application/service degradations. It accurately informs analysts on the users and business assets that were impacted by operational or security related incidents, the information, application or service that was compromised and where the root cause of the problem lies so remediation efforts can be actuated.

NIKSUN delivers its powerful solution on a single platform architecture that not only captures network traffic at real-time line speeds but also creates a rich Network Knowledge Warehouse (NKW) using NIKSUN's patented meta-data analysis algorithms. The NIKSUN Network Knowledge Warehouse provides roles based access control (RBAC) and enables multiple users to simultaneously mine the NKW for analysis & reporting, all the while ensuring compliance with internal policies. Some applications include real-time, as well as retrospective, network, application and service management, security surveillance, forensic reconstruction and policy compliance verification.

In 2008, the well respected, security focused SCMagazine, awarded the well-sought Overall 5 stars rating to NetDetector®, a key component of the NIKSUN product suite.. "A solid product that not only provides good log analysis, it has the forensics chops to get the investigative job done. Our Best Buy," wrote Peter Stephenson from SCMagazine.

In addition to its enterprise, network and security surveillance solutions, NIKSUN unveiled the long awaited Puma Portable appliance in May 2009, a fully functional network performance, security and compliance monitoring solution in a small and lightweight case that can be deployed anywhere. The ready-to-deploy & lightweight transportable appliance offers customers a complete range of network security and performance monitoring tools that track, capture and analyze the root-cause of any network performance issue or security incident on the go.
