Business description: Sensory Networks is a provider of software pattern matching solutions that enable richer functionality and greater performance in network security applications. Typical target applications include Intrusion Prevention (IPS), Antivirus (AV) and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) systems. The Company’s HyperScan pattern matching software runs on a variety of processor architectures and operating systems, providing excellent scanning performance in an easy-to-integrate library.

Sensory Networks is headquartered in Mountain View, California, and has an R&D office in Sydney, Australia.
