Metaflows, Inc. is a California corporation founded by Livio Ricciulli, with significant help from Phillip Porras and Matt Jonkman. Livio and Phil collaborated at the Computer Science Laboratory of SRI International where intrusion detection was first developed back in 1983. Following recent compelling research results and prior commercial success, the founders were commissioned by the National Science Foundation and The Army Research Office to commercialize recent, significant results in network security research through the founding of Metaflows. The resulting product (The Metaflows Security System or MSS) has been growing organically since then thanks to its strong technical differentiations. Most of the team members at Metaflows have an engineering background and are exclusively focused on product development and customer support.
