With over 25 years of experience in information security and embedded systems engineering, Martin Roesch was one of the first entrepreneurs to successfully commercialize open source software, in addition to creating the global standard for describing and detecting network-based attacks.
In 2001, he founded Sourcefire, serving as CEO/CTO, until its 2013 acquisition by Cisco for $2.7 billion. He then joined Cisco and led the Security Business Group as Chief Architect. Marty is the original author and lead developer of the Snort Intrusion Detection and Prevention System that formed the foundation for the Sourcefire product suit.
Today, Martin is the CEO of Netography, the security company for the atomized network, which recently secured $45 million in Series A funding for the company.
