SAN MATEO, Calif., November 4, 2014 – Norse, the leader in live attack intelligence, today announced that the Security Innovation Network (SINET) Showcase steering committee has named Norse to this year’s prestigious list of SINET 16 Innovators.  As a member of this select group, Norse will present its advanced threat intelligence solutions to representatives of some the world’s largest industry and government organizations at the SINET Showcase 2014 event on December 4 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

“We are honored to be among this impressive group of 16 innovative security companies chosen from a field of more than 100 nominees from around the world, and we look forward to presenting our live, actionable threat intelligence platform to the 350 builders, investors, researchers and buyers attending this event,” said Sam Glines, CEO at Norse.  “Norse has created a worldwide network of more than 5 million sensors – the Norse DarkMatter™ platform – that delivers continuously updated, unique Internet and darknet attack intelligence in real time to help organizations block the attacks that other systems miss.”

The SINET 16 Innovators chosen this year will present their technological solutions to representatives from venture capital, investment banking, system integration, academia, science, legal, policy, private industry and the federal government, including civilian, intelligence and military professionals – the ecosystem of the entrepreneur.

With millions of sensors deployed in more than 40 countries worldwide, the Norse network delivers unique visibility into attacks emanating from difficult-to-penetrate geographies and darknets that no other vendor can match. Norse’s staff of professional “fusion analysts” scrutinizes, refines and interprets the Norse network’s data with insight gleaned from years of experience in government, military intelligence and counterintelligence work.

Norse attack intelligence customers includes some of the largest companies in financial services, technology and government.  Norse intelligence can be accessed in a variety of ways, including via a 1U appliance (Norse DarkWatch™), a real-time data feed (Norse DarkList™) or from the powerful Norse contextual search and forensics portal (Norse DarkViking™).  Norse plug-ins are also available for popular SIEM, IPS or firewall products , enabling organizations to dramatically improve the performance, catch-rate and return-on-investment of their existing security infrastructure.

The SINET Showcase provides a platform to identify and highlight best-of-class security companies that are addressing industry and government’s most pressing needs and requirements. The Showcase event’s objective is to increase awareness of innovative solutions that may lead to an investment in, or the purchase of, advanced technologies that will help secure our nation’s critical infrastructure and command-and-control systems.
