DALLAS, Tex., Jan. 25 – HAWK Network Defense, the manufacturer of “EyeCon,” a revolutionary new SIEM Technology Platform, has joined Sourcefire’s Technology Partner Program. Through integration with Sourcefire’s eStreamer API, EyeCon can deliver rich security content to protect against advanced persistent threats. EyeCon will leverage all of Sourcefire’s context-rich data set, including event data from the Sourcefire Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS), Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) and FireAMP advanced malware protection.
The ability to collect, aggregate and correlate this information in real-time is a challenge for many SIEM vendors on the market today. EyeCon’s revolutionary grid architecture with distributed correlation engines has the ability to handle big data with ease. EyeCon’s intelligent learning algorithms and logic, along with its onion-layered scoring system, delivers accurate, actionable security intelligence to security practitioners of all levels.
“The ability to leverage Sourcefire’s eStreamer API to deliver more robust security analytics into EyeCon’s intelligent logic will deliver true actionable intelligence on network threats while providing deep forensics capability,” said David Harris, CEO of HAWK
“We’re excited to welcome HAWK into our Technology Partner Program,” said Douglas Hurd, director of technical alliances for Sourcefire. “Their next-generation SEIM technology offers advanced correlation capabilities and scalability, making them a real asset for our large enterprise customers and service provider partners that are seeking to address the security challenges big data and multi-tenancy present.”
HAWK Network Defense is rapidly becoming the SIEM vendor to watch. Our revolutionary architecture and intelligent logic is rapidly becoming the envy of the industry. HAWK’S EyeCon SIEM PLATFORM ability to collect, manage and correlate BIG DATA delivers the visibility, insight and situational awareness needed for cyber threat defense, detection and response, compliance automation and assurance, and operational intelligence and optimization. EyeCon’s patent pending onion layered scoring system coupled with its intelligent learning logic analyzes and manages network, host, file and user activity data in a highly scalable, integrated solution. HAWK’S EyeCon solution detects the previously undetectable, delivers powerful forensics and provides actionable intelligence.

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
