Agentless compromise and intrusion detection for Linux.

"Making Linux security simple, fast and effective.

Sandfly Security was started to address the need to have effective and fast intrusion detection for the Linux operating system. Linux is the dominant force running the backbone of the Internet, we want to make sure it is as secure and reliable as it can be.

Our company was founded by Craig Rowland. The last company Craig founded, Psionic Software, was sold to Cisco Systems. His company produced the world’s first automated agentless tool to reduce false positives from Intrusion Detection Systems. Before that, he was a developer that wrote network auditing software for WheelGroup Corp (also acquired by Cisco).

Craig also was an early stage consultant that worked with the CTO of TippingPoint Technologies on their intrusion prevention system that was acquired by 3Com Corp. He most recently has worked as a security researcher at Iovation (acquired by TransUnion) to help develop new ways to spot online fraud. He started his career working for the Chief of Naval Operations, U.S. Pentagon and is a published author on investing through John Wiley and Sons.
