Virtual Team

Virtual Team supports field consultants as a background resource and with their in-depth knowledge on a number of topics they have experience.

Picture Bio
Joachim Viide jukke.png Joachim - if that's his real name - was born in a town. Time passed. During this time he got older and a degree. Joachim co-founded Clarified Networks. As of this writing it is some time after that.
Marko Laakso Marko is a loony Finn with UNIX & network background, gained from administrating the network of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Oulu. Security advisories from summer 1996 pushed him beyond point of no return by raising the question "More of this same kind, again?". Ever since he has been pestering vendors with vulnerability reports too long to be read and helping to bootstrap both academic research and commercial ventures to address the poor software quality and growing complexity. He is also co-founder of OUSPG research group, co-founder of Codenomicon and co-founder of Clarified Networks. Marko's specialities are infosec, vulnerabilities, security, critical infrastructure protection and computer networks.

"With Clarified Networks we had true situational awareness, real collaboration and the ability to steer the process during the whole audit.

This way we received better return than ever before and the possibility to fix critical problems at the moment they were discovered instead of waiting for formal reporting and reiterating then reiterating slow and costly process.

We also found very valuable the possibility to adjust specific plans during the process. Thus the knowledge acquired from previous stage was leveraged right away. Also re-planning because of environment changes went very smoothly.

The fact that we worked with distributed team did not harm the communication. Similar agility is very seldom achieved even with teams working in the same room."

Clarified Analyzer


"The analyzer has been used in helping us analyzing attempted SQL injection and Remote File Inclusion attacks upon our servers. The tool has also been used to good effect whilst penetrating botnet command and control sites.

It allowed us to automaticly trace the links involved in a SQL injection attempts, work that was previously done manually, thereby saving time and allowing us to start getting the numerous sites involved closed down in a more timely manner."

NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence

The aim of the Baltic Cyber Shield is to increase understanding of the international cyber environment and to enhance international cooperation for handling technical incidents. During the exercise, six teams from Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden and NATO headquarters (NCIRC) will attempt to defend virtual computer networks against hostile attacks ... The organisers of the exercise would like to thank Clarified Networks for their support in organising the exercise. Read full story from the original page.


The panOULU (public access network OULU) network provides wireless broadband Internet access to everybody in its coverage area . The panOULU network is provided in cooperation by the City of Oulu, the University of Oulu, the Oulu University of Applied Sciences, the Pulmonary Association Heli, the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, DNA Oy, Elisa Oyj, and Netplaza Oy.

The panOULU network is accessed by over 15 000 unique devices per month. We have built an extremely cost-efficient wireless network which covers the city centrum, the airport, public libraries, schools, buses and even a ferry. To avoid complexity and to enable seamless roaming, panOULU is a single large L2-network. While this approach has many advantages, it has one disadvantage: failures in certain parts of the network can propagate to affect all users. We have tackled this problem by using Clarified Analyzer to quickly detect and debug network problems. With the time travel feature we are also able to debug sporadic failures that we could not otherwise debug while the failure was ongoing.
