LogRhythm Acquires MistNet
LogRhythm, a Boulder, Colo.-based company powering today’s security operations centers (SOCs), acquired MistNet, a cloud-based analytics platform that delivers vast network visibility and accurate threat detection. Founded in 2016 and led by Geoffrey Mattson, president and CEO, MistNet focuses on securing complex enterprise environments by developing technology using cloud-based distributed AI and mist computing technology to improve threat detection and reduce false positives. MistNet’s patent-pending TensorMist-AI™ technology also brings AI capabilities to LogRhythm by constructing a geo-distributed meshed data pipeline that combines scale-out data management with distributed processing analytics. This provides improved network visibility to increase detection and reduce the time to respond to advanced persistent threats (APTs) that are commonly able to bypass traditional perimeter defenses. LogRhythm enables security professionals at leading organizations NASA, Xcel Energy, and Temple University to promote visibility for their cybersecurity program and reduce risk to their organization each and every day.
