Today, the Hortonworks Metron product management and engineering team are kicking off a multi-part blog series on Apache Metron, the next gen security analytics application that Hortonworks is building working with the Apache Community.

To understand Apache Metron, we have to first start with the origins of the project which emerged from the Cisco Project called OpenSoc. The below diagram highlights some of the key events in the history of Apache Metron starting with Cisco OpenSoc.
Given Hortonworks proven commitment to the Apache Software Foundation process and our track record for creating and leading robust communities, we feel uniquely qualified to bring this important technology and its capabilities to the broader open source community. Without Hortonworks, the Apache Metron project would not exist today!
