  • We have all heard of Bot Nets , (and we will go into more detail in a future newsletter).  Bot Herders are powerful programs which handle/manage and control large numbers of compromised devices.  Who knows – your devices could already be under the control of a bot herder.   A Cloud of My Own identifies the patterns of Bot Herder communications and takes action to bring your devices back under your control.

  • Zeek is an extremely powerful IDS / Network monitoring tool created and enhanced over 15 years to create a power network security.   These tools – formerly called the Bro IDS – are used by universites and corporations that have access to very smart , deeply technical people.  A Cloud of My Own leverages the power of Zeek, but makes its functionality easy for the user to understand in non-technical terms.  We do the work, you are protected and everyone benefits.  

Thanks for subscribing to our newsletter.  Please forward a copy along to folk who you think might be interested.   

Security is our passion.
