Knight Capital Group Selects NIKSUN's NetVCR to Optimize Performance on its 10-Gigabit Network

MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- NIKSUN(R), the leading provider of real-time network performance monitoring, security surveillance, forensic analysis, and compliance solutions, today announced that the Knight Capital Group, Inc. selected the award winning NetVCR(R) solution for proactively monitoring the health of its high speed global network in order to continue to provide the highest levels of service availability to its clients.

The NIKSUN NetVCR solution is the world's first full-function appliance for advanced real-time network, service and application performance monitoring. It is an integrated and scalable solution that provides proactive end-to-end SLM/QoS monitoring and surveillance, real-time and historical expert analysis, multi-timescale auto-analysis and an online continuous "super analyzer" from the link layer to the application layer. The integration of these critical capabilities on a single appliance makes NetVCR a sought after solution for proactive network management and surveillance.

"NetVCR is a powerful network analysis solution that allows Knight to keep up with demands placed on our systems by rapidly increasing electronic trading volumes across the industry," said Steven J. Sadoff, Senior Managing Director and Chief Information Officer for Knight Capital Group.

"Over the last few years, Knight has introduced a suite of electronic access products for the buy side, including a multi-asset class direct market access platform, Knight Direct," Mr. Sadoff said. "Meanwhile, more than 90% of Knight's sell-side order flow is processed electronically. Knight trades on our clients' behalf, and therefore we require near real-time identification and resolution of issues. NetVCR will help us ensure optimal performance across our network and its 10-Gigabit components as we continue to process trades and market data as quickly and efficiently as possible."

"I have seen an increasing number of large enterprises and service providers such as Knight Capital deploy our NetVCR solution to improve their ability to monitor the performance of their complex network infrastructures," said Dr. Parag Pruthi , Founder, Chairman and CEO of NIKSUN. "Our customers find NIKSUN solutions to be the only comprehensive solution that scales across diverse environments to match their requirements. At NIKSUN, we are very responsive to customer needs and are committed to delivering advanced and innovative solutions that are powerful and cost-effective."
