San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 02, 2015
CyberFlow Analytics, an emerging leader in in the Cyber Security market with its Security Behavior Analytics solution, today announced it is joining the San Diego Cyber Center of Excellence (CCOE) organization. The San Diego area is uniquely poised to become a national and international magnet for essential cybersecurity services, products and capabilities. Building out this industry can fuel both our regional and domestic economic engine for decades to come. Founded by a collection of world-class cyber companies with operations in San Diego, the CCOE organizations partner together to help drive initiatives that foster economic growth for the regional Cyber economy. CyberFlow Analytics joins a list of CCOE participants including Sentek Global, ESET, ViaSat, Qualcomm, FIS, FICO, Lockton, Morrison Foerster and the United States Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR).
“CCOE is working on a set of strategic initiatives that drive cooperation across the established Cyber Community” stated retired Rear Admiral Kenneth Slaght and current CCOE Co-Chair and President. “We are pleased to see emerging cyber security companies like CyberFlow Analytics join our list of members and help to invest in accelerating and creating new opportunities for business growth not only in San Diego but also in the western region of the US”.
San Diego is especially well-positioned to benefit from the growth of the Cyber Security market. The region is already home to large market leaders in cybersecurity solutions. For more than two decades, the region has been leader in data analytics and encryption technologies. San Diego has a strong cyber workforce and a strong workforce pipeline. The region is home to more than 40,000 IT workers. The region’s universities and colleges graduate several thousand computer scientists, computer engineers, and other IT workers with the skills to enhance cybersecurity.
Cyber is pervasive in the region.
There is a robust demand for cybersecurity solutions across many sectors and facets of San Diego’s economic ecosystem:
- Defense: The Department of Defense (DoD) recently proposed a five-year cybersecurity budget of more than $23 billion. San Diego’s strong military presence means many of these resources will be deployed regionally.
- Private Industry: Companies across all of San Diego’s sectors employ cybersecurity solutions; Firms such as Sempra Energy and Qualcomm have made significant investments to protect their customers.
- Industry Collaborations: Securing Our eCity has drawn attention to the ubiquitous nature of cyberthreats and the importance of every individual and business taking action to protect themselves. CyberTECH is another global organization based in San Diego and focused on IoT innovation and security of which CyberFlow Analytics President Tom Caldwell holds an advisory position. The Cyber Center of Excellence (CCOE) has also formed to help accelerate the region’s cyber innovation economy.
CyberFlow Analytics has spent years developing its flagship product FlowScape™ that enables Global 2000 companies and government organizations to better detect cyber threats, risks, and advanced persistent threats from inside the network uniquely using machine learning and advanced analytics. CyberFlow is an emerging pioneer for securing both the enterprise and the Industrial (IoT) market.
Tom Caldwell, President of CyberFlow Analytics said “We believe that by participating in the CCOE strategic programs we can drive the growth of more job opportunities and also help develop the San Diego region into a Cyber Mecca for industry security and Internet of Things (IoT) leadership. San Diego has a unique intersection of a strong military presence and a group of technology professionals that have migrated down from the Silicon Valley. We especially see an opportunity to hire veterans who are coming out of the military and look to leverage their Cyber Security skills in the commercial sector”.
An example of such success is the career of Bert Kellerman, a former Navy Seal who retired and went back to University of California San Diego (UCSD) to study Computer Science and Data Analytics. He joined CyberFlow Analytics in their internship program and is now one of the technical leaders for Security Analytics innovation partnered with Dr. William Wright, CyberFlow’s Chief Data Scientist. His recent leadership included the innovation and development of new technology for protocol analytics that detects new forms of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attack vectors such as DNS, SSH, and HTTPs protocol tunneling. This new security analytics innovation was recently released in their FlowScape version 2.0 announced during the RSA Security Conference.
