New Version of Nuix Engine Released

Nuix (News - Alert), a technology company that enables people to make fact-based decisions from unstructured data, has released a new version of the Nuix Engine and its core products.

Wih Nuix Engine, it is possible to process, search and analyze the largest and most complex data sets, according to company officials. The new 6.0 version is expected to help Nuix customers address data problems across all parts of the business, as it has added many new data formats to Nuix’s repertoire.

“This release combines our traditional strengths in unstructured information with real-time data streams such as log and network capture files. More than ever, Nuix is the one tool that can make your data tell a story,” said Eddie Sheehy (News - Alert), CEO at Nuix.

The new additions include semi-structured and structured data, and also new languages for the Workbench interface. In addition to that, there is also support for new operating systems and new ways to group and filter important data types.

Cybersecurity has become a growing concern across all the industries as the incidents of cybersecurity breaches are increasing. The new version enables cybersecurity incident response investigations, as it comes with the ability to search and query live Microsoft (News - Alert) SQL Server databases and semi-structured data streams, including Web and FTP server and Windows event logs and network packet capture (PCAP) files.

One of the key features of Nuix Engine 6.0 is the new Document Navigator filters. These filters are browser history, browser cache, cloud storage, instant messages, phone calls, USB devices, user accounts, network information and logs. With the addition of the filters, the finding of the relevant information is expected to become easy, as they group and interrogate important types of data across multiple sources.

And, the option of ‘custom processing’ enables the search of data at “light speed,” without creating an index or additional storage footprint, according to company officials. Moreover, the Nuix Engine can also selectively index and extract “named entities” from specified file types.

Meanwhile, the company has said that the Nuix Engine, Nuix Workbench and Nuix Management Server now run natively on Mac OS and Linux.  With Nuix 6.0, it is now possible to process Mac OS Parallels virtual disk images and Pages, Numbers and Keynote files.

Seeing that its global customer base is expanding, the company has now made it possible to use the Nuix Workbench interface in Arabic, Korean, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish (Latin America). Chinese, Dutch, English, German and Japanese language versions were already available.

“Whoever you are, wherever you work and whatever you’re trying to achieve, Nuix makes data speak your language,” Sheehy said.

Earlier in July, Nuix extended its eDiscovery product range to include Nuix Web Review & Analytics.
