How Two Decades of Security Research Ultimately Spawned a Silicon Valley Startup

In academia, it can require perseverance and patience to see your research gaining real-world traction. In this presentation Dr. Robin Sommer will recap the journey that turned the open source network security monitor Zeek (formerly Bro) from a little known research platform into a powerful operational security tool that’s now helping protect some of the largest, most sensitive organizations. Over a period of more than two decades, Zeek went through a series of quite distinct phases (as well as a couple of near-death experiences) that, in hindsight, all proved critical to exploit the full potential of the original technology. Today, the Zeek project is thriving more than ever: An active open source community continues to extend the system’s capabilities, while a venture-backed startup founded by its creators provides turn-key products to large enterprises and government organizations.
