User-friendly interface and predictable cost reduce the barriers of traditional data analytics platforms

Soliton NK supports a more efficient and cost effective way for SOCs to ingest data and establish corresponding cybersecurity measures.

Soliton Systems, a Japanese IT Security Solution provider serving many industries across the globe, today announced the launch of Soliton NK (Soliton Network Knowledge), an ultra-fast data analytics platform, available as both a physical server appliance as well as a virtual appliance. Designed as an antidote to the hurdles of other data analytics platforms on the market, such as the shortage of skilled security staff and incremental cost, the Soliton NK platform is simple to implement and ingests unlimited data for a flat subscription fee.

Security operations centers (SOCs) collect and analyze log data to understand the threats that confront their organization and to plan countermeasures accordingly. However, this deluge of data leaves analysts fighting an uphill battle, exacerbated by the shortage of experienced team members and frequent burnout. Soliton NK supports a more efficient and cost effective way for SOCs to ingest data and establish corresponding cybersecurity measures. These measures limit the impact a cyber-attack would have on corporate activities. It is critical to promote countermeasures not only within IT departments, but also throughout other departments such as HR and finance.

“The use cases for Soliton NK are far reaching,” said Toru Tsuchiya, Executive Officer, Soliton Systems. “Big data analysis feeds critical information to analysts on a wide range of human activities, even beyond cybersecurity. However, the implementation of technology to run these analytics can be complicated. Soliton NK meets the demand for easy-to-implement automation and delivers analytics that support a strong cybersecurity posture.”

Ultra-fast data analytics and log analysis make the Soliton NK platform a top solution for corporations and public institutions that struggle with an excess of data. High speed data collection takes place regardless of data format (syslog, file, HTTP, etc.) and pipeline processing enables a fast and powerful search. Simple-to-implement automation is a powerful feature benefiting analysts by triggering automatic environmental response functions for certain events revealed by log analysis.

The entrance of Soliton Systems to the United States has piqued the interest of Ron Gula, Gula Tech Adventures, who notes, “in the race to secure and audit their systems, companies should not have to choose how much data they ingest so as to stay on budget. Soliton NK alleviates common concerns around the rising cost of data ingestion, and I am pleased that the company has begun working with Gravwell, a full-stack analytics platform built in the U.S., to drive low-cost, simple data management.”

Additionally, Soliton Systems is partnering with TomahawX to rapidly grow sales of their NK platform in the United States. Jaci Tomek, Managing Partner of TomahawX, adds, “Soliton NK is akin to the ‘Splunk Killer’. Data format agnostic, easy to implement and built for high speed data collection, this appliance makes is possible for teams to take action on data in real-time. Proven and validated, with over 16,000 units shipped worldwide, Soliton NK will make a significant mark on the U.S. market.”
