The end of 2014 was a turning point for DefiniSec, as our team shifted its' focus from R&D to efforts aimed at converting findings into marketable product. This would consume the subsequent 6 months, culminating in our June 2015 Early Adopter Program announcement ironically time-aligned with public disclosure of Chinese success in breaching the US Govt Office of Budget and Mgmt.
Nonetheless, to mark that point of transition, our Founder, John Poffenbarger, submitted content to Spiceworks for consideration, specifically focused on host-based threats to intellectual property data stored in files. The resulting article, titled as noted above, can still be found here.
Many will quickly recognize that the term, "ephemeral" is mis-used, or at best, "judiciously interpreted". This is the unfortunate consequence of editing not identified as misaligned until after the piece's release. Because the spirit of our intent is straightforward, we chose to avoid the pains of requesting modification and instead rely on your better judgment in understanding our goals. This seems to have been reasonable well-received, as independent discourse has verified that our path and dialog align with the general nature of developing CyberSecurity dynamics at the time, without too much added confusion.
