This week the MetaFlows startup announced that its MetaFlows Security System (MSS) is being used to secure the network at the SC13 conference. Working with the Department of Energy’s security team, MetaFlows is providing intrusion detection and prevention services that are detecting corrupted posts to the network.
The MSS is a software-based solution that can divide traffic into multiple streams and process each of them on a separate CPU core to monitor up to 10 Gbps of sustained network throughput on standard, off-the-shelf servers. The MSS extends the capabilities of common hardware to do packet filtering and web filtering, providing effective protection against cyber threats.
The MetaFlows Security System can be deployed within minutes to secure any network, large or small,” said Livio Ricciulli, CEO and Chief Research Scientist of MetaFlows. “We are delighted to be providing the security for Supercomputing 2013.”
The MSS’s, real-time, browser-based security console ranks events using a new, revolutionary predictive global correlation system mathematically similar to Google’s page ranking algorithm. Important events show up at the top and users can prevent, quickly investigate and remediate security and usage policies issue before they become critical.
