PacketSled’s Board of Advisors to add Taner Halicioglu, Expert in Scalable Big Data Security Architecture.
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — PacketSled, Inc., an industry innovator in big data security analytics, today announced that Taner Halicioglu will join its board of advisors. He will help guide PacketSled’s technology direction, with a focus on practical deployment in big data environments.
PacketSled’s marquee product – “Toboggan” is a leading next generation, big data security analytics technology that captures, inspects, and stores a forensically accurate record of all network sessions through layer 7. Because the company’s technology identifies attacks in real-time, the performance of data capture, storage, and retrieval is a key differentiator in the market.
Today’s leading social networking, e-commerce, and cloud companies suffer from the problem of having too much security data to analyze. They operate large, high availability environments that require ongoing security monitoring. Because traditional full-packet security solutions cannot provide visibility much beyond 30 days without becoming cost prohibitive in these environments, these organizations are often left without an option for a forensic record of events beyond this timeframe. Toboggan, by PacketSled solves for these issues by combining rich security metadata with massively scalable data storage architecture.
“We believe that Toboggan can become the de-facto standard in acquiring and understanding rich security metadata being generated from big data environments. Taner’s thought leadership and practical experience will be instrumental as we deploy into larger and larger environments,” said Kurt Neumann, the company’s Chief Technology Officer.
