Network Security Experts
Network Perception was launched in 2014 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Research Park. Founded by a team of experts on network security and critical infrastructure protection, Network Perception delivers a pioneering solution that enables corporate compliance and cyber security managers to gain a complete view of their network security and to immediately determine if its configuration is in alignment with best practices and regulatory standards.
History: Prof. David M. Nicol and Prof. William H. Sanders of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have co-led the development of the network access policy tool, NetAPT. The development of the technology was largely directed by the Ph.D. effort of Sankalp Singh, a graduate of the University of Illinois. Mouna Bamba directed the software development and the team was awarded a U.S. patent for the network analysis algorithm. The development was also guided by Edmond Rogers, who has extensive experience working in industry as well as working with the auditing process. Robin Berthier joined the team to lead the transfer of the technology towards commercialization, thanks to funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Science Foundation.
