A Match Made in Heaven?: Cloud-Based MetaFlows Inc. Partners with Cybersift for High-Performance Network Security Monitoring

Redlands, CA, November 12, 2010 --(PR.com)-- On the eve of the world’s premier supercomputing conference, SC10, MetaFlows Inc, a startup focused on leveraging emerging cloud/virtualization technologies for the next generation of network security solutions, and Cybersift, a manufacturer of high-performance network sensor hardware, announce their partnership for merging state-of-the-art software and hardware innovations into a very new kind of high-performance network security solution. The solution, to be displayed at SC10’s SCinet, promises to deliver industry-best performance at a fraction of the cost of today’s norm.

Both MetaFlows and Cybersift technologies were derived from years of leading-edge research sponsored by the National Science Foundation and several US Government agencies and are now available, together, as a formidable security package. MetaFlows has developed a network security monitoring system that features the world's first Software as a Service (SaaS) security console coupled with an innovative active security paradigm that discretely baits attackers into disclosing their targets and attacks methods. The MetaFlows system continuously mines the Internet for attack vectors and autonomously augments organizations’ traditional flow and IDS data (events, not packets) with up-to-the-minute threat intelligence. Then, it securely delivers these results to users through an easy-to-use browser-based security console that highlights severe threats and devalues false positives with unprecedented accuracy.

"Last year, we were able to make a significant contribution to SCinet's already world-class security monitoring capabilities,” said Livio Ricciulli, MetaFlows’ Founder and Chief Scientist. “At this year’s SCinet, we’ll have the pleasure of showcasing our production system in partnership with Cybersift. There’s a lot of smoke and mirrors in the computer security industry. Therefore, we intend to prove our solutions’ value to the market by taking on the security monitoring of one of the most challenging environments known to the industry: supercomputing networks."

"The 10GBps Sifter 10 we’ll be deploying at SCinet is unlike anything else out there in terms of processing power. Marrying the power of processing up to 28 Million Packets per Second with the sophistication of MetaFlows' local and global event correlation technology results in something out of this world, I think," said Cybersift Chairman Andy Craig, "We look forward to showcasing our match made in heaven at other prominent events for everyone to see: there’s no smoke and mirrors here, just real, high-performing network security monitoring."

If you are interested in a live demonstration of MetaFlows NSM while at SC10, Livio Ricciulli would be happy to personally demo the system and get your feedback. Simply RSVP with MetaFlows’ press contact, Jude Calvillo ([email protected]), to arrange a meeting.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...

After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by DevOps Summit Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists l...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
