New Orleans’ nMeta, LSU Seek National Cyber Security Solutions

NEW ORLEANS – Kent Laursen, former Chief Technology Officer of No Magic Inc., an industry leading modeling tool vendor for both private industry and defense, and Christopher Galliano, former U.S. Navy Communications and Information Systems Officer, have joined forces to launch nMeta, in New Orleans.

         nMeta is focused on solutions that enhance the nation’s commerce, cyber security and national defense capabilities by leveraging powerful, model oriented practices. nMeta is developing research projects in partnership with the Louisiana State University Transformation Technology and Cyber Research Center, and has been working with its Director, Jeff Moulton, as well as with other high level stake holders to initiate several cyber security projects.

         nMeta will work closely with the LSU TTCRC, contributing Modeling and Simulation expertise to design a group of innovative and powerful technologies that can enhance cyber security for the United States and its interests.

         “We’re committed to model based solutions to better defend our nation’s mission critical networks and systems, having spent considerable time discussing the model-based approach to engineering and enhancing our defense systems,” said nMeta Co-founder, Christopher Galliano. “Kent and I see that merging the disciplines of model based engineering and cyber security within the framework of OMG standards is an approach whose time has come.”

         nMeta’s integrated approach to cyber security provides both a top down and bottom up orientation to assessment, analysis and risk reduction that is able to help protect against the multiphase attack vectors of modern cyber attackers. “The simultaneous manifestation of top down and bottom up cyber protection empowers holistic, traceable analytics and monitoring capabilities, producing findings that are not obtainable from one direction,” said nMeta Co-founder, Kent Laursen. “This bidirectional approach enables targeted prevention, monitoring and mediation where the scope of cyber threat prevention can be accurately prioritized by risk, architectural context and operational importance. This targeting allows for more efficient and cost effective cyber security enabling lower TCO with higher ROI.”

         nMeta is expanding to introduce models into all facets of the technology industry and partnering with major companies to incorporate models into their businesses. nMeta is offering unique research opportunities to the Air Force Research Labs, Office of Naval Research, the DoD Rapid Innovation Fund, other agencies and Louisiana to develop powerful and innovative capacities in the cyber and C4ISR domains. “We also want to work with manufacturers to introduce model driven approaches to locking down the IP based systems that are on the road, in the air and at sea,” said Galliano. “The security solutions in nMeta’s roadmap can be greatly beneficial to securing these mission and safety critical systems.”
