Redlands, CA, March 24, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- MetaFlows, Inc., a startup developing next-generation network security monitoring solutions sponsored by leading Government agencies, has just released a parallel processing implementation of BotHunter that runs on off-the-shelf hardware. What this means to network security executives and managed security solutions providers is that, now, without having to purchase expensive, proprietary hardware, they can easily and affordably scale the benefits of BotHunter, one of the industry’s most popular botnet detection tools, to monitor most any size network they can imagine.
BotHunter, which uses SRI’s revolutionary dialog correlation technology to detect botnets on a network, is one of the most advanced botnet detection tools in the industry, but larger organizations have been hoping for performance (speed) and usability improvements since its inception. Integrated into MetaFlows’ innovative NSM product, BotHunter can now scale to enterprise-level performance by load balancing flow analysis across multiple cores. Better still, through an easy-to-use forensic interface, MetaFlows NSM embeds BotHunter’s analysis within a rich set of contextual information, which includes flow analysis, IP/signature reputation, OS/service fingerprinting and log management. What’s more, thanks to MetaFlows inventive use of an award-winning predictive algorithm, MetaFlows NSM’s security console ranks security events for significantly truer positives and less false positive clutter, letting analysts get straight to the events that matter most and helping to steer them clear of wasting time/effort.
“What we have here, now, is an enterprise-ready version of BotHunter that’s integrated into a complete, scalable network security monitoring solution capable of using commodity hardware; but the proof is in the pudding, I invite anyone to try it for free and see for themselves,” said Livio Ricciulli, Founder and Chief Scientist of MetaFlows.
You can try MetaFlows NSM for free, or purchase a very affordable and scalable subscription (starting at $99/sensor/month), at www.MetaFlows.com
. Configuration support is free of charge and MSSP partnership inquiries are warmly welcomed.
MetaFlows, Inc. is a California-based corporation bringing the world’s first fully and securely SaaS-based IDS management solution to market, a solution so revolutionary in infrastructure and intelligence that it will unavoidably slash the costs and complexity of network security monitoring while actually improving upon event analysis and remediation response time(s). MetaFlows is partially funded by the National Science Foundation and the Department of Defense and is led by a team of experienced entrepreneurs with a track record of success in network security ventures.
