Nuix has released version 6.0 of the Nuix Engine and its core products. This update adds many new data formats to Nuix’s repertoire, including semi-structured and structured data, as well as new languages for the Workbench interface, support for new operating systems and powerful new ways to group and filter important data types.
“Customers are using Nuix to solve one problem such as investigation or eDiscovery but finding they can apply the same tools and skills to a host of other enterprise data challenges,” said Eddie Sheehy, CEO of Nuix. “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.”For cybersecurity incident response investigations, Nuix has added the ability to search and query live Microsoft SQL Server databases and semi-structured data steams including web and FTP server and Windows event logs and network packet capture (PCAP) files.
Powerful new Document Navigator filters help to locate relevant information faster by grouping and interrogating important types of data across multiple sources. Filters include browser history, browser cache, cloud storage, instant messages, phone calls, USB devices, user accounts, network information and logs.
A patent pending “custom processing” option makes it possible to rapidly search vast volumes of data without indexing, dramatically reducing the required storage footprint. The Nuix Engine can also selectively index and extract “named entities” from specified file types.
Nuix has responded to customer requests for software that runs on Mac OS, which is common in law enforcement environments, and Linux-based cloud infrastructure. The Nuix Engine, Nuix Workbench and Nuix Management Server now run natively on Mac OS and Linux. Nuix 6.0 can also process Mac OS Parallels virtual disk images and Pages, Numbers and Keynote files.
To cater for Nuix’s expanding global customer base, customers can now use the Nuix Workbench interface in Arabic, Korean, Portuguese (Brazil) and Spanish (Latin America), adding to the existing Chinese, Dutch, English, German and Japanese language versions.
“Whoever you are, wherever you work and whatever you’re trying to achieve, Nuix makes data speak your language,” said Sheehy.
