NetImmune wins entrepreneurship award

NetImmune, Inc., a start-up company developed by ISR-affiliated Professor Mark Shayman (ECE), Mehdi Kalantari, a 2005 Ph.D. and current ECE assistant research scientist; and Mehdi Alasti, a 2001 ECE Ph.D.; was presented with the Award for Entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland's Invention of the Year awards. The entrepreneurship award is sponsored by the Maryland Technology Development Corp. (TEDCO).

NetImmune, located in Germantown, Md., develops products to protect internet networks by mimicking human immune system responses. Dr. Shayman is developing a high-speed prototype platform in a real network environment to detect and prevent Distributed Denial of Service and intrusion attacks. NetImmune's solution can identify a network attack within seconds to a few minutes; current systems can take more than a half hour. By detecting network attacks at early stages, NetImmune's technology can prevent substantial damage from occurring.

NetImmune is a past winner of the UM $50K Business Plan Competition (2004) and a MIPS funding recipient (2005).
