Entrepreneur set to disrupt cyber security industry with new platform
Today (December 5), Senseon, a sensory artificial intelligence company for cyber defence, has launched the Senseon platform - a new solution set to save time for CISOs and security professionals by making the detection of cyber threats more accurate.
The average Fortune 500 company utilises dozens and dozens of separate cyber security tools, each requiring the attention of security teams to monitor for alerts of potentially malicious activity.
Research has found the average enterprise receives 17,000 malware alerts a week, yet only 19 per cent of these are deemed reliable and four per cent are investigated. The Senseon platform will solve this issue by using sensory AI.
Senseon’s technology has both the intelligence and context to separate benign activity from genuine threats, meaning it is able to carry out automated investigations with accuracy.
This helps overstretched security teams to focus their efforts where they matter the most - investigating actual threats.
Senseon has enabled its system to autonomously converse, improving the accuracy of threat detection across the network, endpoint devices, cloud environments and Investigator Bots.
The new solution deploys simply into organisations’ environments. It follows the path of an attack across devices and networks, building an accurate picture of the threat, using the information gathered from its multiple senses.
Founder and CEO of Senseon, David Atkinson, said: “It is this combination of complete visibility and the accuracy of threat detection provided by the Senseon platform which is already giving CISOs the peace of mind they have always craved.”
Founded in 2017, Senseon was said to be the first ever cyber expert within the UK’s specialist military units.
David added: “Cyber attackers’ skills are constantly evolving, making it crucial that our cyber defence solutions learn and grow to stay ahead of them.
“This is why we have created an intelligent, sensory platform that not only protects businesses’ systems, but learns from the environment around it.
“I have been a client-side cyber security professional, I have had those sleepless nights where you worry about what is on the network, unable to keep up with all the alerts. My team and I wanted to build a product that solves this problem.
“The Senseon platform is a technology built by security professionals, to help security professionals.”
