When our chief scientist created Bro at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 1995, he never imagined it would be used worldwide more than 20 years later. For over 20 years the founders of Corelight have been building and improving the open source software, and now they've founded a company.
RSA Conference, San Francisco, Calif. (Booth #1043) – April 18, 2018 – Corelight, the most powerful network visibility solution provider for cybersecurity, today announced it has been named InfoSec Startup of the Year and a Leader in the Network Traffic Analysis category in CyberDefense Magazine’s annual InfoSec Awards at the RSA Conference this week.
Corelight Sensors provide deep, detailed data about network traffic applicable to a wide range of security challenges facing organizations today. Using Corelight technology, security teams are better able to diagnose and understand attacks faster, decrease the noise around security alerts by weeding out the false positives, uncover rogue applications and other threats to the network such as ransomware and other malware.
“Our goal is to help organizations get to the truth faster by providing them with a rich view of their network data, so they can better prioritize incident response all the way up the security stack,” said Greg Bell, CEO of Corelight. “We are honored to receive recognition from the CyberDefense team. It is further validation that the work we are doing and the technology behind Corelight is helping to make a difference for our customers.”
The CyberDefense Magazine InfoSec Awards is an annual review of the hottest, most innovative, best, market leaders, next-generation and cutting edge infosecurity companies offering incredible products and services.
Corelight delivers the most powerful network visibility solutions for information security professionals, helping them understand network traffic and defend their organizations more effectively.
