In September, Hortonworks partnered with ManTech and B23 to foster a vibrant open community to accelerate the development of OpenSOC. In December we additionally partnered with Rackspace Managed Security and submitted OpenSOC to the Apache Incubator as a podling under the name of Apache Metron. A decision to rename the project was made to represent the new direction and the new community. Now the process of graduating Metron to a top-level project (TLP) has begun. Given our proven commitment to the Apache Software Foundation process, we feel uniquely qualified to bring this important technology and its capabilities to the broader open source community. Metron integrates a variety of open source big data technologies in order to offer a centralized tool for security monitoring and analysis.
