In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

Fluency’s vision empowers decisions through a holistic view of the network, fusing the ability to monitor traffic with SIEM-like capability. The approach of SIEMs today is outdated; believing that all the data needed to respond is in the events of security alerts. Fluency leverages big data & packet monitoring to provide more information, not less. Fluency is a new type of centralized management that integrates like/or with a SIEM utilizing Big Data to provide vision from packet-to-response:

-Time is your greatest asset: A big data infrastructure allows interactive search over an extremely large data set. While traditional SIEM technology is pressed to show fused attributes of a session, Fluency provides it in milliseconds. Fluency cuts the time from hours to seconds, improving response time while lowering analysis costs. This is not because Fluency is managing a smaller data set, just the opposite. Single node servers can handle a billion events a day & can be clustered to handle more.

-Integration empowers perspective: No man is an island; similarly no security product is either. Fluency implements a service bus. It is best described as making remote services object-oriented. It’s a bi-directional protocol exchange that enables clients to expose services to other authenticated nodes. A service bus implements messaging, REST and stream as its arguments, handling the process of the service flow by the service itself. The result is two fold: Faster integration to data sources & consistent service quality as the service object handles the process flow and error response instead of the client.

-Big Data Analytics: Data analytics is critical for reducing cost of security operations dramatically reducing noise & false alerts correlating high-priority alerts across activity providing the big picture.

In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category

Fluency Corp is reinventing security software, incorporating the newest technologies to make operations scale effectively. Based in the Washington DC area focused on generating true value for our customers.

Fluency Corp aims to make good security affordable and easy-to-use. Our founders took time in developing our product Fluency, but our company also. Knowledge is empowerment. As we engage customers through product, we also aim at giving better knowledge on events in your network and how your security posture actually operates. Fluency is open & integrates with existing security solutions protecting current investments.

Fluency is Next Generation Incident Response utilizing Big Data Analytics. Fluency provides the ability to take in network flow data as well as multiple log feeds from disparate security solutions. Fluency analyzes, fuses, cross correlates flow & log data. Fluency then further validates the alerts against reputation & validation engines.

The result is Fluency finds the events that did not create an alert through its big data analytics. Fluency provides security teams the insight to recover systems and plug holes before they become large or public. Fluency continues to monitor for further signs of threats and IOC’s.

Because Fluency is utilizing patent pending Big Data Analytics & incorporating Full Packet Capture it can provide immediate value, fast ROI & improves the security posture for organization. Fluency’s patent pending technology performs at speeds of 2,160x faster than pivots by SIEMs and 161x faster than the most popular big data solutions. This means a query that takes 20 minutes in a relational database (SIEM), will take 90 seconds in a big data solution whereas it only takes half a second in Fluency. By removing the penalty of time analysts can be interactive, ask and discover. Fast access to data means better security even for the most average of security tasks.

    Just an amazing approach to security by providing analytics and big data capabilities to threats. Truly innovative

  2. John Hudson on January 24, 2016

    Glad to see a company taking a unique and innovative approach to security

  3. Justin RIchards on January 25, 2016

    A fresh and pragmatic approach to security. Breaches happen; Fluency Corp gives you the tools to manage that breach, vs. selling you a false sense of security that the breach can be stopped with countless other point solution strategies.

  4. Brenda Stephens on January 25, 2016

    Fluency is the tool you need for security breaches!

  5. CJ Jordan on January 26, 2016

    Fluency provides a core need in any organization’s security strategy. Many companies talk about network vision, Fluency provides it.

  6. Spence on January 26, 2016

    Led by a team of experienced – and proven – cybersecurity engineers, Fluency provides a unique capability that helps organizations fight back against modern cyber crime. Fluency manages to provide nuanced, granular insight into network activity without sacrificing ease of use to help analysts root out and respond to emerging attack activity. In an industry riddled with snake oil and false promises, Fluency offers a product – and a team – you can count on to make an immediate impact on your organization’s security posture.

  7. Mike Fields on January 27, 2016

    Fluency leverages big data analytics on both a stand alone basis and also in cooperation with other security tools. The strength of the software is it’s ability to cull data, correlate findings and provide meaningful information to reduce legitimate risks. Now, the security analyst can focus on problem solving instead of looking for the “needle in the haystack”. Great value!

  8. Chuck Ayott on February 1, 2016

    Nothing like it. Best of breed.

  9. Agustin Zentay on February 1, 2016

    Finally a company that has made identifying breaches a lot more visible when you have limited resources.

  10. Bill Kegley on February 5, 2016

    Its refreshing to see a product that not only provides what it says it will provide but offers solutions if a problem occurs as well. This moves security to a new level that we have all needed for a long time now
