OTTAWA, Ontario--()--Nakina today announces NI-DEFENDER a new class of network security solution called a Secure Network Auditing platform. It is the industry’s only solution focused on the unique needs of service providers operating complex, multi-technology, heterogeneous networks.

“Service providers are facing an unprecedented set of challenges”

NI-DEFENDER combines Identity Access Management, continuous network configuration scanning, adding big data search and analytics technology to enable network and security operations teams to prevent, pin-point, and neutralize security threats. Also announced today is NI-CREATOR, a collaboration application to discover and compile service and network configuration templates used by Nakina’s network integrity applications including NI-DEFENDER.“Service providers are facing an unprecedented set of challenges,” said Patrick Rhude, CTO, Nakina. “Complexity created by the Internet of Things, small cells, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) will strain service provider security and network operations teams. NI-DEFENDER helps our customers strengthen network security and at the same time support network expansion, improve costs and enable new services.”NI-DEFENDER leverages Nakina’s customer-proven, market leading network integrity applications and orchestration enablement platform to secure any physical or virtual network - whether legacy or next generation technologies from IT servers and infrastructure to applications and user interfaces – and is cloud-ready. Available later this year, Nakina is already working with a number of leading service providers who plan to implement NI-DEFENDER.“Nakina is offering a security solution designed to protect operators’ complex and dynamic networks,” noted Sue Rudd, Director of Service Provider Analysis at Strategy Analytics. “SDN and NFV introduce a new set of network security challenges and vulnerabilities. By integrating network and service configuration auditing, context-aware analytics, with role and attribute based identity access management, NI-DEFENDER can protect today’s networks and assure both physical and virtual network security as operators move to NFV and SDN.”Nakina’s NI-DEFENDER Secure Network Auditing Platform is a finalist in multiple categories for the Pipeline Innovation awards.
