Cemal Dikmen Awarded for Network Intelligence Innovations for Cyber Security Applications

MILPITAS, Calif., Aug. 31, 2017SS8, the network intelligence company, today announced that the company’s chief technology officer, Cemal Dikmen, has won the SC Media Reboot Leadership Award for his significant technical contributions to the security industry.

According to SC Media, “Cemal Dikmen knows that intelligence is the key to keeping an organization safe from hackers and has spent a considerable amount of time and effort developing the tools needed to do this job.”

Dikmen joined SS8 in April 2002, after spending time in the telecommunications industry, and has since been the driving force behind several technological innovations centered on gathering information, many of which are now being used by several national-level intelligence agencies.

These advances include the ability to extract previously inaccessible levels of security intelligence from massive volumes network traffic at scale and then this information can be fed into his patented inventions that decode communications flows at gigabit speeds and perform deep packet inspection to gather application level intelligence like To/From information and attachment details in email traffic.

“By focusing on the network and developing innovations that allow companies and governments to ‘see’ deeper into packets than ever possible before, Cemal has provided the industry new ways to extract the intelligence needed to detect and respond to breaches before it’s too late,” said John Campagna, president of Chenega Corporation, an SS8 partner. “His contributions are making our critical infrastructures safer, helping companies discover and prevent damages associated with data breaches, and providing the intelligence needed to maintain our national security.”
