SOC Monkey - FREE and in the App Store now!

Blog Post created by socmonkey on Mar 16, 2012

The name’s Monkey.  SOC Monkey.


I’m here to provide you with a new free app for the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch that will search through infosec topics that are trending on the social web.  I’ll also rank them based on what the biggest news items and hottest topics are, so you can make sure to get your banana's worth. 


Now, I’m not going to just barrage you with links.  I’m going to use my incredibly advanced simian brain to curate these news items, so you can focus more on what you need to get done, instead of spending a huge chunk of time trying to sort through the noise of the social web to find the infosec gems underneath.  I’ll even go ahead and color code them to indicate how big the stories are, with red being the hottest, down through amber and yellow.


My amazing simian synapses aside, I can’t do this all alone.  I'm working with my pals The Pips: infosec experts who help me identify which stories are important, and then group and rate them and curate the stories into similar topics and levels of importance.


You can save or hide stories, as well as voting them up or down with a like or dislike.  You can even retweet directly from the app or start a whole new tweet.  Don't worry though, I promise not to monkey with your twitter account!


So what are you waiting for? It’s FREE and available in beta in the Apple App Store now so head over and start checking it out for yourself.  Search for "SOC Monkey" - what could be simpler!


If you’ve got more questions, feedback, or think you can hack it as one of my Pips, send me a message, and we’ll talk again soon.


Keep your SOCs on,
