The RSA® Conference took place from March 4-7 at the Moscone Convention Center.  A reported 42,000 people from around the world attended the event.  There were 31 keynote presentations, 740 speakers and 621 sessions.  More than 700 exhibiting companies were at the conference.  The TOYO teams from Japan and the United States staffed our booth (#2265) at the conference.  Have a look at our photo gallery which consists of 81 pictures taken throughout the RSA event.  https://youtu.be/olOZAviT6i0

At the TOYO Booth, we showcased our SYNESIS packet capture appliance.  This powerful appliance has the unique capability to record every single data frame from a network segment ranging from GbE line rate all the way to 100GbE line rates. No other competing product comes close. We just released a new informative video espousing the reason why you need to capture all data frames in order to perform comprehensive network forensics and analysis.  I encourage you to check out the video.  It’s only 2 minutes long. https://youtu.be/tam-43ucUzg

We even created a Japanese language version.  https://youtu.be/FFqpzSlF7eU.

During the show, we also unwrapped an incubation product called OmniX, a portable cybersecurity solution that provides unified security analysis and forensics.  It has a myriad of powerful features including the ability to provide comprehensive risk, threat and vulnerability management, and policy-based forensic data recording utilizing a patent pending indexing architecture.  I’ll post more on the blog about this product as we home in on a launch and release date.  In the meantime, if you need any additional information feel free to drop us an email at info@toyotechus.com.

Perhaps one of the biggest highlights for us was the CFI (Cyber Forensic Investigation) Challenge we staged.  A cybercrime had just taken place at the Moscone Center and we asked visitors to our booth to help us solve the crime.  For those who were willing to take up the challenge, TOYO provided them with a clue.  They were then asked to visit our partners, Flowmon and Logz.io to gather additional clues.  Once they received all 3 clues, they should have had enough information to identify the perpetrator.  We had over 45 submissions.  Thank you for all your participation.  Thank you to our partners Garland, Flowmon and Logz.io for taking part in the challenge.

I reviewed all the submissions and over 95% of you got the correct answer which was the “Wannacry” ransomware.  Personally, I had anticipated about 50% of the submissions to be correct so I was absolutely blown away.  We held the drawing last week in our offices and picked the winners.  The grand prizes winners were Mel Lee ($300 Amazon gift card) and Joe Wei ($150 Amazon card).  There were also 9 other winners and they each will receive a $40 Amazon card.  Here’s a video of the raffle draw.  https://youtu.be/M2orSuzlpKI

Congratulations to everyone.  And a special thank you to our CEO, Masaru Gomi, for helping us out with the raffle drawing.  He is the gentleman in the white checkered shirt.

We’d like to thank everyone that dropped by the booths to learn more about SYNESIS and OmniX. We had an amazing time engaging with the cybersecurity community at the RSA conference and we will definitely be back next year.  We hope to see everyone again then if not sooner.
