Elastic Stack-based RockNSM Project Changes the Playing Field for
Cybersecurity Teams world-wide

WASHINGTON (BUSINESS WIRE) Elastic N.V. (NYSE: ESTC) (“Elastic”), the company behind Elasticsearch

and the Elastic Stack, announced that the Missouri National Guard

Cybersecurity (MOCYBER)-led RockNSM

project has won the 2018 Public Sector Innovation Award. The award, part

of 1105 Media’s Annual


recognizes outstanding innovation across

government in six categories including cybersecurity. RockNSM (Response

Operations Collections Network Kit, Network Security Monitoring) is a

network security monitoring program that identifies threat patterns in

communications traffic. It was built using the


and allows users to securely take data from any source and in

any format, and then search, analyze and visualize it in real time.

The 2018 Government Innovation Awards showcase the best examples of

discovery and innovation in government IT by highlighting the next

generation of transformative technologies that are truly reinventing

government at the federal, state and local levels. That potentially

mission-critical impact can stem from a new technology itself or from

the innovative ways established technology is being used to make

government function better.

Prior to the development of RockNSM, it took the MOCYBER team two full

days to collect the information necessary to respond to security

incidents. A team of weekend Reservists led by Captain Derek Ditch,

developed RockNSM to transform cyber operations from a defensive,

reactive situation to an offensive, predictive situation. It’s improved

their chances of predicting hacks and also dramatically improved

post-event forensics. The program has been so successful that it has

been adopted by military and government agencies and commercial entities

around the world.

“Traditional security approaches that leverage technologies like

firewalls, policies, and signatures by themselves, are no longer

effective against today’s threats. In addition to those tools, we need

to monitor the metadata of all our network traffic,” said Derek Ditch,

founder and core developer for RockNSM. “With RockNSM we can now

identify threats that have no signatures, based upon the behavior of the

actor. This is a total game changer. More importantly, we’re able to

collaborate with others in the open source community to constantly

improve our tactics and platform for detecting the most advanced


“The demands of cybersecurity teams have dramatically changed in the

past decade, and their organizations are faced with volume and speed of

network traffic never experienced before,” said George Young, Area Vice

President, Public Sector at Elastic. “Programs like RockNSM are to be

applauded not only for their effectiveness and ability to operate in

this environment but also for their ability to operate independently on

top of existing networks. This is a great example of the kind of

innovation that is happening across the government, where a group of

people who care about the mission leverage Elastic to do what otherwise

could not be done due to budget or performance limitations of existing

solutions. We applaud this group for their innovation as well as sharing

with the community at large to address the security of our most valued

national assets.”

MOCYBER and other award winners were honored last week at the Government

Innovation Awards ceremony at the Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner.
