Maxxian announces CounterStryx Release 7.0
Maxxian today announces the availability of CounterStryx 7.0.
CounterStryx 7.0 features historical data management and architectural changes to enable future product improvements and features.
With customer data retention and privacy being top of mind for most operators, Maxxian has raised the bar on CounterStryx historical data retention and deletion capabilities. “While we avoid personally identifiable information (PII) in CounterStryx, we want to ensure that our customers have the capability to meet all their regulatory and legal requirements for data deletion” says R.J. Juneau, CTO of Maxxian. The release features restructured historical data in seven separate categories, with each category having its own configurable retention period.
“Maxxian understands the regulatory rules applying to our customers”, says Juneau. Operators have data retention rights for troubleshooting, billing reconciliation and security and fraud analysis. “You can’t just do a blanket deletion”, says Juneau. “Our data retention capabilities protect both the consumer and the operator”.
Under the covers, the architectural changes enable future performance and feature improvements through upgrade of underlying infrastructure components. The release enables a gradual migration to the Python 3 feature set that offers improved parallelization and security.
“CounterStryx 6.0 provided major performance improvements through our Federated Architecture. That was a starting point”, says Juneau. “With IoT and 5G on the horizon, we anticipate that this will allow us to scale from CounterStryx 6.0’s 100 million plus device capacity to over a billion devices in future releases.”
