Wow, almost March and my first post this year, need to care a bit more about this. Lot of things are happening around OSSIM, AlienVault and myself these months.
First, we finished a big funding round early this year which finally will enable us to consolidate OSSIM as a leader in the SIEM space (at least that’s the idea :-) ). We’re going to invest a lot into development but more importantly into community care, documentation and all those things that wrap around the product.
Another big thing will be the imminent release of 2.2, with tons of new features. Check out the documentation link above which will lead you to http://www.youtube.com/alienvaulttv.
More things related to this funding is the establishment of AlienVault USA. For a start I’ll be travelling a lot between Europe and the US, attending conferences, giving talks and scoping the market over there. San Francisco Bay Area is the chosen location for this move.
For a start we’ll be having a small booth at RSA 2010l, booth #553. I’m very excited about this, looks like this is one of the largest and most interesting security vendor conferences available, and we’ll be there. (Going to be there with our CEO and VP Sales). As a said note, in order not get too harassed by spam around me I’ll spend a couple of days midst week at the BSidesSF, where I hope I’ll be able to do a quick lightning talk :-)
That’s all for now, next time I’ll be writing from the sunny beach of Santa Cruz :)))
