Senseon has announces the launch of Senseon Reflex. Built on the company’s award-winning AI Triangulation technology, Senseon Reflex acts autonomously, without human interaction, to halt cyber attacks in companies’ environments before they can spread and cause damage.
David Atkinson, Senseon Founder and CEO, said: "Senseon Reflex represents a huge leap forward in the capability and practical application of AI in cyber security. Many of us at Senseon have been on the other side of the fence and have experienced the pains of not being able to stop threats in a timely manner. We have harnessed AI to solve this problem. Senseon Reflex provides an enormous head-start for security teams while delivering peace of mind for our customers.”
In operation 24/7, Senseon Reflex’s ability to understand context and differentiate between unusual behaviour and malicious activity ensures that the platform is able to isolate genuine threats without needlessly impacting legitimate business operations.
Atkinson continued: “Existing autonomous response tools create added dangers. Without accuracy or context, these tools often misfire and stop legitimate business operations, which can have both financial and reputational implications for organizations. However, thanks to our unique AI Triangulation technology, Senseon Relex is able to accurately determine what is a true threat and can act decisively to stop malicious activity in its tracks.”
When it comes to attacks such as crypto ransomware, time is critical. In recent lab tests, Senseon detonated the infamous WannaCry ransomware attack. Within just one second, the Senseon platform accurately identified the in progress attack, and just eight seconds later Senseon Reflex stepped in to isolate the infected device stopping the attack from spreading across the network.
