Security Start-up Seeks to Spot, Solve Compromises

A new security start-up backed by the intellectual capital of perhaps the best-known security personality of the past five years is set to unveil its flagship solution at next week’s RSA Conference. Intrusic Inc. will be showing off its Zephon system, which is designed to pick up where today’s existing security technologies leave off.
