MONMOUTH JUNCTION, N.J. , July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- NIKSUN(R), the leading provider of real-time network performance monitoring, security surveillance, forensic analysis, and compliance solutions, announced today that SC Magazine has selected the award winning NetDetector(R) solution for their esteemed "Best Buy" award. The product was top-rated in all six categories: Features, Ease of Use, Performance, Documentation, Support, and Value for the Money.

Reviewers commended NIKSUN NetDetector's design as an appliance that not only has the ability to do network forensics and incident analysis but also praised the onboard intrusion detection and network surveillance systems. The review states, "Beyond analysis deep within the packet, this product can also reconstruct applications, such as web-browsers and even chat and web-based email."

SC Magazine's reviewers were surprised by how easy it is to install and begin using NetDetector. Initial configuration can be done by either connecting a monitor and keyboard to the appliance itself or through a HyperTerminal connection. After running through the simple set-up wizard to set IP addresses and gateways, the review notes that, "The Java-based web GUI is easy and intuitive to navigate and we were looking at data in no time."

More highlights of SC Magazine's review:

-- On the appliance's performance: "This product is a solid performer. It sits off of a hub, the span port of a switch or a network tap so it sees all network traffic and is able to record anything that goes in or out of the enterprise."

-- On network analysis: "When doing network analysis, we found drilling down into the many graphs to be an easy task, and finding the exact data was quick and efficient."

In summary, SC Magazine's reviewers stated that, "The combination of analysis capability and application reconstruction, along with simple intuitiveness, makes the NIKSUN NetDetector a solid asset to almost any organization." As for weaknesses, the reviewers could not find any, and the final verdict was, "A solid product that not only provides good log analysis, it has the forensics chops to get the investigative job done. Our Best Buy."
