Intuitive Labs Design Philosophy

We think good software follows a philosophy. We invite you to read some of our consideration upon which we build when we produce security software, that provides an ultra-low Time-to-Respond solution for security threats.

Intuition + Data + Algorithms is what makes a program today. We put a parallel to Niklaus Wirth's equations from seventies that placed an equation between Programs and Data + Algorithms. We think the shift from Data to Big Data needs to be compensated on the Algorithm side of the equation by something stronger: that is Algorithms specialised on looking for a needle in haystack. We think that is exactly what Intuition is. We create software that implements intuition and helps to find abnormal network conditions that are hard to find otherwise.

Open-source has been fueling innovation in the past two decades. Importantly for us, shift to cloud has created credible business models for open-source companies. See how we perceive the evolution of open-source business model in the past two decades. We keep using open-source for building our software and disclose source code publicly with our commercially licensed software, while keeping the primary focus on offering a complete and comprehensive cloud service.

Security has not been the part of the Internet architecture from early on. When it began to catch up, it changed many aspects of the Internet architecture. Today, Software-Defined-Networks and manageable security devices help to answer dynamically to security threats and reduce Time-To-Respond. See our view how middleboxes emerged. Our software architecture aims to be highly effective even in the age of cloud and encryption by correlating various sources of data and generating automated security response.
