We started by investing in emerging IT infrastructure and security start-ups and advising market leaders to align market, product, and technology to enable them to enter new IT infrastructure markets while we figured out our next company.
Our efforts between 2011 - 2013 have contributed to the creation of a IT security unicorn, the re-focusing of the product market fit for a $1B+ acquisition, incubation of what is today, multiple $100M+ product lines at global IT infrastructure companies, and the shifting of countless infrastructure products to cloud and SaaS platforms for the worlds largest IT infrastructure companies.
In 2011, we developed one of the first commerical software-defined-networking (SDN) controllers designed to secure, control, & automate large cloud-scale data center and mobile networks and filed a bunch of patents in our spare time. By early 2013, we realized the future of SDN controllers was open source and halted development of the SDN controller.
In 2012, we incubated SDNCentral.com (now SDxCentral.com) which educated people on SDN which was spun out of Wiretap and now one of the fast growing B2B technology media companies.
In 2013, we shifted our focus to licensing our SDN software & intellectual property and investing in select early stage IT infrastructure & security companies.
