Cienaga Systems’ DejaVu helps organizations mitigate risk from tomorrow’s cyber-attacks, today. Leveraging recent advances in machine learning, DejaVu continuously generates and evaluates new, innovative cyber-attacks and preemptively searches networks for indications of the same. Its threat-hunting-as-a-service model with turn-key deployment makes DejaVu the ideal solution for organizations to roll out world-class cyber threat management capabilities.


Cyber attacks today cost an estimated $400B worldwide and affect everyone, from payment processing systems in large enterprises to appliances in our kitchens and even devices in our children’s bedrooms.

At Cienaga Systems, our team of software engineers, cybersecurity and artificial intelligence experts is changing this dynamic, enabled by recent advances in machine learning.

Over the past few years, we have built our proprietary Genetically Engineered Cyber Security™ engine. This is an innovative technology that continuously runs scenarios on new and unknown cyber threat vectors. These simulated attack patterns are learned and then used on organizations’ networks. In other words, it looks for tomorrow’s attacks, today.

“The result is an ever-evolving threat hunting machine which leverages intelligence from billions of real and potential attack scenarios and helps organizations stay abreast of future malicious attacks.”

Our cloud-based threat-hunting-as-a-service solution is called DejaVu because its purpose is to alert when it recognizes a behavioral pattern that matches what has previously been imagined by the Genetically Engineered Cyber Security engine.

DejaVu is able to sift through enormous data volumes and analyze quantities of potential hypothetical outcomes at speeds and accuracy levels that are impossible for humans to match. The result is an ever-evolving threat hunting machine which leverages intelligence from billions of real and potential attack scenarios and helps organizations stay abreast of future malicious attacks.

Today, our solution is commercialized to organizations under 2,000 employees in the Americas and Europe, through Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Value-Add Resellers (VARs) and security


In 2015, Cienaga Systems was recognized as one of only a dozen of threat-management firms in Cybersecurity-500, a merit-based listing of the world’s hottest cyber-security companies. As we deepened our collaboration with strategic partners with a global footprint, we were awarded The Bronze Softshell Vendor Award further recognizing our expansion in European markets (2018).

Lockheed Martin day of Caring Orlando 2017
More than 1,000 Lockheed Martin employees, family, and friends volunteered at the YMCA of Central Florida’s Camp Wewa for the company’s annual Day of Caring event. In 2017, Lockheed Martin employees logged more than 1,000,000 volunteer hours in the Central Florida community and contributed more than $1.2 million to local charities.


Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company employing approximately 100,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration, and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products, and services.


With 60 years in Central Florida, Lockheed Martin’s Florida operations are primarily located in the Orlando area with additional sites in Lakeland, Ocala, the Space Coast, Ft. Walton Beach, Riviera Beach, Oldsmar and other locations throughout the state. When Lockheed Martin (then the Glenn L. Martin Co.) opened its first Orlando office in 1956, it began a long legacy of growth and community support to the region.

Today, Lockheed Martin is one of the largest industrial employers in Florida with more than 14,000 employees. Approximately 9,000 of the state’s Lockheed Martin employees live and work in Central Florida and continue that legacy of community support through various volunteer programs and
philanthropic initiatives. More than 7,000 of those employees are based at our two Orlando facilities.

Lockheed Martin DEPLOY3D_Transition
Lockheed Martin’s Deploy3D Simulator is a cutting-edge, mixed reality simulation solution, which reduces cost and space requirements while enabling immersive training.

International Screening Solutions – Solutions for Managing Global Risk

International Screening Solutions - office



International Screening Solutions world map

For decades in business, the measure of networking prowess was defined by the content of a spinning wheel of index cards. Could you imagine relying on a Rolodex of business cards and pencil scratches to manage your relationships today? Hardly. Now imagine a global risk business tool relying on manual updates to track millions of known terrorists, human traffickers, and money launderers.

Fortunately, the team at International Screening Solutions imagined a different solution. While the market was focused on watchlists created regionally, maintained manually, and updated sporadically, ISS co-founders Chuck Papageorgiou and Eric Beach envisioned an automated global risk information exchange (GRIX) that could locate, aggregate, curate, and deliver risk data directly from the source.

“As more countries and agencies identified money laundering, human trafficking, and terror financing, the manually-updated tools couldn’t keep pace with all the new information being shared,” said Papageorgiou. “The old tools were okay when the blacklist alerts streamed from a handful of sources, but today it is more like a river of risk data. When a money launder is sanctioned in one location, they will often resurface somewhere else.”

Businesses everywhere need “know your customer” (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) programs to protect against the growing global risk. According to the Financial Action Task Force, human trafficking alone generates $150 billion annually in black market revenue. From a recent FATF report:

“Money laundering is inextricably linked to the underlying criminal activity that generated it. Laundering enables criminal activity to continue.”

International Screening Solutions World Watch Plus FinCEN

Supported by customers including the world’s largest payroll and background screening companies, ISS developed GRIX to locate, aggregate, curate, and deliver information drawn from the “river of risk data” each day. ISS created a selective search engine to access validated information about individuals and businesses restricted from commercial activity because of their criminal activity. Algorithms dissected adverse information from structured and unstructured data, then indexed everything to accommodate customer-specific searches.

Delivery came in the form of WorldWatch Plus® – a customer-designed platform with case management, reporting, and custom filtering, available in a SaaS portal or integration with existing customer systems. Launched in 2015, utilization doubled each of the last three years, and ISS was named a Top 10 KYC Solution Provider by Banking CIO Outlook for 2017, and an Inc. 5000 entry for both 2016 and 2017.

ISS continues to build on four pillars of differentiation: casting a wider net, timely and relevant results, unmatched partnering and customer service, and a customer-friendly economic model. With customers on-boarding from around the world, the Rolodex at ISS is doing just fine.

Cyber Florida – at the University of South Florida

Cyber Florida - Cybersecurity Conference 2017
Cyber Florida - Cybersecurity Conference 2017
Cyber Florida - Logo-Horizontal_2018


The Florida Center for Cybersecurity, also known as Cyber Florida, is a statefunded organization dedicated to positioning Florida as a national leader in cybersecurity through education and workforce development; innovative, interdisciplinary research; and community outreach. Hosted at the University of South Florida, Cyber Florida works with all 12 State University System of Florida (SUS) institutions as well as industry, government and defense to build partnerships and develop programs that grow and strengthen Florida’s cybersecurity industry.


Cyber Florida was formally established as the Florida Center for Cybersecurity through Florida Statute 1004.444 in July 2014, hosted by the University of South Florida for the benefit of the entire SUS and the state. Led by Director Sri Sridharan, a seasoned expert and entrepreneur, the goals of the center are to assist in the creation of jobs, enhance the existing workforce, act as a cooperative facilitator between industry and higher education, seek out partnerships with major military installations, and attract cybersecurity companies to the state.

Guided by a nationally recognized Board of Advisors with former Director of National Intelligence Vice Adm. (Ret.) Mike McConnell as chair, Cyber Florida first focused on enhancing Florida’s cybersecurity talent pipeline to meet the overwhelming demand for cyber professionals. The center created a platform for collaboration among the 12 SUS institutions by establishing the SUS Cybersecurity Advisory Council and acts as a liaison with private industry to ensure academic programs align with industry needs. Additionally, Cyber Florida has invested more than $1.4 million to help fund 24 of these new programs through its Capacity Building Award Program. With Cyber Florida’s support, the SUS has expanded academic programs specific to cybersecurity from a handful in 2014 to more than 40 as of 2018, with several hundred graduates and thousands more enrolled.

Cyber Florida - the Florida Center for Cybersecurity

And because the hands-on-keyboard experience is such a vital component of a successful cybersecurity educational program, Cyber Florida launched the Florida CyberHub in January 2018. This virtuallearning lab provides a cyber range, secure sandbox, capture-the-flag, course catalog, and desktop-as-aservice to facilitate and enhance cyber education and research initiatives throughout the state.

The center also has laid the foundation for a robust research ecosystem in Florida through the Collaborative Seed Award Program, which funds research projects led by investigators from at least two SUS institutions. Cyber Florida has invested more than $2.3 million in 44 cybersecurity research projects led by 65 researchers so far, and these projects are highlighted at an annual Research Symposium where both scholars and practitioners can explore the cutting-edge research being done at Florida’s universities.

In tandem with these initiatives and others, Cyber Florida has continued to grow its signature event year after year, the annual conference. Each year, the Florida Cyber Conference connects hundreds of cybersecurity stakeholders from students, educators and policymakers to CISOs, hands-on practitioners, and members of the defense and law enforcement communities. Held in Tampa each October and coming up on its fifth year, Florida Cyber Conference has rapidly grown to become one of the most popular and valuable industry events for Florida’s cybersecurity community.

“Shown with fake data. View of Haystack Monitoring, showing an anomalous access (red link) and the context around it.”

Co-founded by tech entrepreneur Adrian Talapan and Dr. Bimal Desai, CMIO at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), Haystack Informatics started life by building a next-generation software platform that helps hospitals detect, investigate, and report patient privacy violations: Haystack Monitoring. By using multiple detection engines and multiple visualization lenses, our behavioral analytics software significantly reduces the time it takes to identify and manage insider threat risk, saving hospitals money and safeguarding their reputation.

From unintentional employee errors to the rogue employee, internal breaches have become a critical area of concern for hospital professionals as institutions extend their reach throughout their networks to include physician offices,outpatient clinics, and health information exchanges. Without the ability to apply constant surveillance to identify a potential insider threat before it happens, it’s nearly impossible to mitigate risks associated with protecting patient data – until it’s too late.

In addition, based on our understanding of employee behavior, we recently launched Haystack Intelligence, a new product that offers healthcare leaders the ability to monitor the operational performance of their domain continuously. This new solution delivers an objective diagnosis and determination of root causes of operational efficiencies and inefficiencies as they arise in the areasof EHR Workflow Optimization, Operational Improvements, Service CostManagement, and Patient Experience.

We are proud to be located in Philadelphia, as its rich history of healthcare innovation made experimenting and iterating on our solution set with actual customers not only possible but also highly efficient.

In addition to CHOP, the company is supported on its journey by anchors of the local entrepreneurial ecosystem: DreamIt Ventures, Rittenhouse Ventures, and Ben Franklin Technology Partners.
