Packet Ninjas Announces the Formation of ShadowDragon To License Cyber Intelligence Investigative Tools
CHEYENNE, Wyo., Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Packet Ninjas, a niche cyber security consulting and services company, today announced the formation of a sister company named ShadowDragon.
ShadowDragon will license specialized cyber intelligence gathering and investigative tools that were developed by Packet Ninjas over the past ten years while investigating and analyzing complex security threats for international businesses, law enforcement and governments. Parent company, Packet Ninjas will continue to provide cyber security consulting services.
"Today organizations are struggling to identify, understand and stop the malicious actors and threats targeting them. We have been asked frequently by our customers if they could purchase the tools we use to investigate and analyze these threats," said Daniel Clemens, President and CEO of Packet Ninjas. "In order to meet this demand, we spent 2015 packaging our tools for sale under a separate company we named ShadowDragon."
ShadowDragon sells a suite of four cloud-based tools that can be purchased separately, with a fifth one to be released early in 2016.
Unlike many other Cyber Intelligence products on the market, the ShadowDragon Suite focuses on augmenting the existing skills and workflow of analysts providing correlation, attribution and real time situational awareness. "The tools we created give organizations greater context, enabling investigators to enhance the clues they have, turning them into supporting artifacts for success in a case, and even understand who may be behind the acts," Clemens said.
Accelerates Investigations and Identifies Both Physical and Cyber Threats
In addition, the ShadowDragon Suite offers other unique benefits that accelerate the investigation and cyber intelligence gathering process:
ShadowDragon Named After a Fierce Hunter
The company was named ShadowDragon after a type of dragonfly. The dragonfly is known by naturalists as the fiercest, most successful hunter in the wild. Clemens commented, "Like dragonflies, we have been successful hunters in the wild of the internet. ShadowDragon will give our customers the tools to achieve some of this success on their own when investigating and incident or person of interest."
