Netography Emerges with $2.6M Funding from Andreessen Horowitz to Make Network Security Self Governing

Barrett Lyon Leads Team Includes Industry Luminaries in DDoS
Mitigation and Network Security

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#Algorithmslt;/agt;–Netography,
an autonomous network security platform that serves as an enterprise
security ‘Eye in the Sky,’ today launched with $2.6M in seed funding
from Andreessen Horowitz. The company aims to help security and network
teams work smarter, not harder, by leveraging the wealth of real-time
data produced by network devices to automatically detect and block
malicious traffic to defend networks.

Led by DDoS mitigation pioneer Barrett Lyon as co-founder and CEO, and
Dan Murphy as co-founder and CTO, the Netography team comprises some of
the seminal figures in anti-DDoS and network security. Lyon and team
founded Prolexic Inc.,, acquired by Akamai Technologies, Inc, technology
that now powers much of the industry’s DDoS protection. He subsequently
went on to found BitGravity (acquired by Tata Communications), XDN
(acquired by Fortinet), and (acquired by F5 Networks).

“No one understands networks, how they act, the information they
provide, and how to protect them better than Barrett and his team,” said
Martin Casado, General Partner at Andreessen Horowitz, and
software-defined networking pioneer. “They have been ahead of the curve
in securing evolving infrastructure for the past 20 years. Now they are
completely flipping the security model on its head. Netography is making
network devices once only managed by people smarter and capable of

Netography provides autonomous network security, harnessing an
enterprise’s existing network device data to stop threats that are
extremely difficult to detect by existing security tools. Leveraging the
wealth of data produced by network devices, combined with cloud
processing, software and algorithms created using the collective
knowledge of 20 years experience from top experts in DDoS and network
attacks, Netography’s patent-pending technology security teams to detect
early indicators of an attack, and automatically respond.

“After years of studying the evolving landscape, and building so many
platforms, we realized the answer was right in front of us,” said
Barrett Lyon, CEO of Netography. “Flying blind from both a network
operations and security perspective is almost criminal in this day and
age of so much information. The era of ‘capture everything’ is in the
past and now we can remotely solve these problems that first generation
network traffic analyzers, DLP, and SIEM tools have struggled to

General availability of the Netography platform will be released in the
second quarter of this year.

Lyon and select members of the Netography team will be in attendance at
the upcoming RSA Conference 2019, March 4-8 in San Francisco and will be
on hand for private first look demonstrations of the platform. To
