Arlington, VA – (July 2, 2012) – Lookingglass Cyber Solutions, a cyber security company whose revolutionary appliance-based platform delivers global visibility for Over-The-Horizon Cyber Threat Suppression, announced today that it is now a top tier Diamond Sponsor of Black Hat USA 2012.
“Lookingglass has grown tremendously over the past year due to innovative product advancements and our unique approach to securing networks as well as our recent funding by investors that are veterans in the cyber security arena. As part of this growth, we are excited to play a key role in one of the world’s most influential security industry events,” said Derek Gabbard, CEO of Lookingglass. “The Black Hat Conference stays on the leading edge of emerging security trends and this sponsorship highlights our commitment to industry innovation and our foothold on threat suppression.”
Lookingglass’ sponsorship of Black Hat USA 2012 builds on the momentum from other major company events this year, including the company’s recent launch of ScoutVision CyberHUD, a key component of Lookingglass’ flagship product – ScoutVisionTM. The CyberHUD enables customers to continuously monitor their external networks, such as those of partners, suppliers, customers and peers, for the presence of malicious cyber activity. In addition, earlier this year the company announced that it raised $5 million in funding from Alsop Louie Partners to bring its next generation of cyber intelligence tools to market.
Black Hat USA 2012 will feature the smartest and most disruptive cyber security professionals revealing research and vulnerabilities that threaten national critical infrastructure and identify flaws in popular consumer devices. During the conference, speakers will deliver presentations that point out key security vulnerabilities in global and national infrastructure, with nine concurrent tracks every day, mixing workshops, roundtables and cutting edge presentations by top security experts. Deep technical training will take place July 21-24, while the open briefings will run from July 25-26. Lookingglass will be running live product demonstrations at their Booth #501 during the 2 days of the expo on July 25 & 26 beginning at 8am daily.
