Powered by machine learning and AI algorithms developed by mathematics of the University of Cambridge, Enterprise Immune System technology iteratively learns a unique ‘pattern of life’ (‘self’) for every device and user on a network and correlates these insights in order to spot emerging threats that would otherwise go unnoticed. With a simple and fast installation, it detects and learns what’s normal about an infrastructure from a strategic point on the network, reacting to and warning of non-standard behavior. The process of detecting anomalies compares not only traffic behavior, but also the behavior of devices and networks compared to similar ones.
