In 2008, Doug Burks started working on Security Onion, a Linux distribution for intrusion detection, network security monitoring, and log management.
A few months later, the first version of Security Onion was released in 2009.
Over the years, folks began deploying Security Onion on production networks with more and more traffic. In 2012, Security Onion was rebuilt from the ground up, focusing on performance and scalability.
As the worldwide Security Onion community grew, Doug Burks began receiving more and more requests for training and professional services. In 2014, Doug started Security Onion Solutions LLC to help Security Onion users peel back the layers of their networks.
