Intrusion Detection

Our AI-enabled IDS/IPS detects file-based and file-less malware. It uses supervised learning and patented algorithms to detect malware with an accuracy of 99% "out of the box."


  • AI-powered malware detection
  • Targetted logging for rapid event correlation
  • In situ learning
  • Open standards, API-based framework for rapid integration into security environment
  • Multiple analyzers, including BRO, YARA, Clam A/V
  • Supports open and proprietary threat intelligence feeds


  • Probability of detection of less than 1% s
  • In situ learning trains the algorithms for their specific environments
  • AI automates event correlation with rich analytics
  • Enables network perimeter defense against zero-day threats

Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
We provide onsite and online training. We offer detailed user guides that are tailored to the users use cases.
Service documentation
Documentation formats
  • HTML
  • PDF
End-of-contract data extraction
We support government clients who typically key the appliance (and their data) at the end of the contract.
End-of-contract process
Full use of the appliance, regular updates/patch (no additional cost). The training requirements are minimal and typically offered at no cost.

Using the service

Web browser interface
Using the web interface
Using API/REST(ful) API, we offer end users the ability to maek browser-based changes and set-ups.
Web interface accessibility standard
None or don’t know
How the web interface is accessible
The web interface is available through a server or desk top browser.
Web interface accessibility testing
Regretfully, none. But we would welcome an opportunity to do so.
What users can and can't do using the API
Service/service calls and configuration changes can be made through server or client based browsers.
API automation tools
  • Ansible
  • OpenStack
API documentation
API documentation formats
  • Open API (also known as Swagger)
  • ODF
  • PDF
Command line interface
Command line interface compatibility
Linux or Unix
Using the command line interface
Configuration and Integration services can be done through command line interface.


Scaling available
Independence of resources
We support on an aggregated throughput basis. We typically size our appliance as a function of sustained throughput. Our clients typically want 20-25% excess capacity available. If capacity starts approaching 90% of max throughput we would simply add another appliance (and load balancer) in the network. That process (to install another appliance for scaling purposes) typically takes 60 mins or less.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
Our SLAs are with the US government and they vary from client to client. We do guarantee "5 9's" availability and work with clients individually on their SLA requirements.
Approach to resilience
We do not operate a data center. Our appliance is deployed to our clients network or their virtual cloud.
Outage reporting
Thought all of the above - a central management function/GUI acts as a public dashboard. In case of outages, or warnings, APIs, emails, SMS are sent the appropriate people.
