MetaFlows Showcases a Novel Security-as-a-Service Approach at SC10 SCinet

Cloud Computing Concept Meets Supercharged Open-Source Network Security Tools at SC10

REDLANDS, CA, November 12, 2010 — MetaFlows, Inc., a startup focused on leveraging emerging cloud/virtualization technologies for the next generation of network security solutions, will debut an innovative network security monitoring system as part of the SC10 networking infrastructure called ?SCinet?. By monitoring SCinet?s diverse and high throughput network, MetaFlows aims to demonstrate that its new network security monitoring (?NSM?) system, the world?s first fully SaaS-based system, is ?ready for the big leagues.? If successful, it would also signal the realization of a new cost-cutting paradigm shift the network security industry -and its patrons- have been waiting for.

Founded upon battle-hardened, open-source resources (Emerging Threats signatures, Cyber-TA?s BotHunter dialog-based correlator, Sourcefire?s Snort VRT, etc.), MetaFlows? NSM reconciles and ranks IDS, flow, and active (local AND global) intelligence through a revolutionary predictive global correlation system based on Google?s page ranking algorithm, better revealing true positives while significantly cutting down on false-positive clutter. MetaFlows? NSM then delivers and unifies these results, along with log management, through the world?s first fully SaaS-based, real-time security console with easy-to-use forensic tools for deep event analysis. To cap it all off, MetaFlows? Open-Sensor Technology? helps NSM subscribers save thousands more dollars per year by granting them the ability to use almost any off-the-shelf sensor hardware they prefer or, via Linux/FreeBSD or virtual machines, use their preexisting hardware.

?At SC10, we expect to show the world that these technologies are now fully matured and able to handle the most demanding of environments,? said Livio Ricciulli, Founder and Chief Scientist of MetaFlows. ?The HPC community should find our fully SaaS-based security console and predictive global correlation technologies especially interesting, because they afford HPC admins and their MSSPs the levels of secure mobility and efficiency they?ve always needed but have never seen before.?

MetaFlows? NSM will be active throughout SC10, and MetaFlows Chief Scientist, Livio Ricciulli, will be available to answer any questions you might have about it, November 14th through the 19th.

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 (, to arrange a meeting.

About MetaFlows, Inc.

MetaFlows, Inc. is a California-based corporation currently working to bring the world?s first fully 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 SRI International and is led by a team of experienced entrepreneurs with a track record of success in network security ventures.
