The U.S Government has selected Niksun as primary provider of full packet capture capability for the U.S. Government’s new network protection program, the Joint Regional Security Stacks (JRSS). This news is a great stride forward for both the company and the U.S. Federal Government, allowing Niksun to form the backbone of U.S. cyber protection in the coming years.

The announcement coincides with the unleashing of Niksun’s Supreme Eagle; a single high performance data traffic capture and analysis device that features lossless packet capture at up to 100 Gbps – an industry first.

With 15 times more processing capability, 60 percent less power consumption, and 80 percent less rack space required when compared with current industry solutions, Niksun’s Supreme Eagle has become pivotal in the effort to combat increasingly nefarious cyber activity. Having successfully passed every part of the stringent testing required by the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), Niksun is further poised to fundamentally change the way the U.S. Federal Government secures and protects its information network.

“Niksun has once again proven itself to be the best in the world,” said Dr. Parag Pruthi, Niksun Founder and CEO.

“Succeeding where other multi-billion dollar security vendors could not, Niksun’s validation by DISA is a clear testament to both the prowess of our team as well as our continued focus on fostering advanced research and development,” according to Dr. Pruthi. “During times of crisis, the United States and its military, hand-in-hand with an enterprising and innovative private sector, are often called upon to break new ground and set the stage for the future. In this new age of cyber warfare, the JRSS architecture and Niksun’s revolutionary Supreme Eagle create a pioneering cyber defence architecture that will become the new global standard.”

With this validation, Niksun looks to revitalise the critical U.S. cyber infrastructure. As increasingly sophisticated cyber intrusions pose new risks, the partnership between Niksun and DISA paves the way for secure, yet optimally performing government and civilian networks. With Niksun’s revolutionary technology, the U.S. Department of Defense aims to become a global model in network protection and attack prevention, reemphasising the importance of cyber security as a key component in the fight to keep the nation safe.
