NYC Cybersecurity Startup Wins U.S. Cyber Command Competition

New York City-based cybersecurity startup Jazz Networks, announced that it placed first in a competition to detect insider threat attacks in real-time during a simulated U.S. Cyber Command battlefield.

DreamPort is a cyber innovation and collaboration center created by USCYBERCOM through a Partnership Intermediary Agreement awarded to the Maryland Innovation and Security Institute. Dreamport held The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing competition in Columbia, MD from January 29 – February 14. The event sought to identify user activity monitoring solutions that employed advanced, real-time analysis of multiple data sources for anomaly detection, specifically those that offered both predictive monitoring and policy-based monitoring features.

“The team was very impressed with the level of sophistication of the attacks organized by the team at Dreamport,” Jazz Networks VP, Federal, John Sparks said. “Being able to rigorously test and prove the Jazz Platform in these real-world scenarios was a great opportunity to show the Federal community what we can do.”
