Security startup MetaFlows recently launched a software-as-a-service (SaaS) product designed to monitor network traffic, detect intrusions and analyze event logs.

"The MetaFlows Security System (MSS) is composed of local software agents that can run on inexpensive off-the-shelf hardware and a cloud-based service where the results are stored," writes Computerworld's Lucian Constantin.

"The local MSS sensors capture network events and transmit the corresponding data to the company's cloud system where they get analyzed and sorted by priority," Constantin writes. "Customers can inspect the results using a secure Web interface."
