Security startup records a year’s network data
A security startup has developed a platform that gives security professionals a much larger picture of what has happened on their network, even if they might have missed the initial signs of an intrusion.
It comes from ProtectWise, a 30-person company based in Denver, which is revealing more information on its technology after lying low since its founding in April 2013.
ProtectWise’s broad aims are to consolidate many threat detection functions for which companies use a variety of products, said Scott Chasin, the company’s CEO, who was McAfee’s CTO from 2009 through 2012.
The company has developed what it calls the ProtectWise Cloud Network DVR, which is compromised of a cluster of lightweight sensors that are deployed at points on a network.
