“We realized traditional approaches for cybersecurity that focus inward on understanding and addressing vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and configurations, while necessary, are insufficient to detect rapidly evolving internal or external threats.”

Nitro Solutions, a leading provider of machine-learning technology, today announced the availability of NitroDefender™, a next-generation cyber defense solution that applies unsupervised deep neural networks to cyber threat and behavior monitoring.
NitroDefender™ integrates with an organization’s network and, without interruption to existing information systems, passively observes all network traffic. It utilizes artificial intelligence, machine learning and unsupervised deep neural networks to observe data, learn behaviors and predict potential cyberattacks. NitroDefender™ provides analysis of detected threats by self-learning the network of people and devices, including IoT and industrial controls systems (ICS), to determine what is ‘normal’ behavior – providing a Cyber Immune Response™ modeled after the human immune response when anomalies are detected. NitroDefender™ detects indicators of zero-day exploits, malware, ransomware, phishing, malicious insider activity and other cyber threats in real time across physical, virtual and cloud-based networks.
“Our population’s dependence on complex technology continues to grow and, at the same time, the threat environment continues to grow and evolve in a uniquely dynamic and daunting way,” said Pete Slade, Nitro’s president and CTO. “We realized traditional approaches for cybersecurity that focus inward on understanding and addressing vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and configurations, while necessary, are insufficient to detect rapidly evolving internal or external threats.”
Concerned by this growing cyber threat, and feeling an obligation to contribute to a solution, Nitro began focusing efforts toward applying its machine learning and behavioral analysis experience to cyber defense. After sharing an early prototype, Nitro was encouraged to commercialize NitroDefender™ by members of the intelligence…
