The Patient Zero Myth

Posted by Greg Maudsley on Oct 26, 2016

In medical terms, Patient Zero is loosely defined as the first human infected by a new or recently discovered viral or bacterial outbreak.

Freedom, Exploration and Menlo Security

Posted by Greg Maudsley on Jul 13, 2016

T.S. Elliot once said, “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”  This quote rings true because, as humans, exploration is deeply rooted in our nature. From the time we are toddlers, we seek knowledge through discoveries in our immediate physical environment, one room at a time in our homes, in the backyard, at the park, all under the watchful eyes of our parents and caregivers.

Menlo Security CEO & Founder Honored at RSA’s Innovation Sandbox

Posted by Kowsik Guruswamy on Apr 21, 2015

Everyone - or at least everyone who cares about security - knows that the 2015 RSA Security Conference is being held this week in sunny San Francisco, CA. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the RSA Innovation Sandbox Award, which since 2005 has been granted to an emerging company seen as having "the potential to transform the information security industry." In 2010 the winning company was Altor Networks, a pioneer in virtualization security which was acquired by Juniper that same year. Menlo Security's founder, Amir Ben-Efraim, was also the founder of Altor and he was honored at the decennial anniversary event. We're thrilled about the recognition for Amir and his past work, but like him we're even more excited about the future and the transformational potential of a new model for security. More to come, soon...
