Cybraics’ nLighten platform is the first advanced security analytics and artificial intelligence platform purpose built for cyber security and it is delivered as a fully managed service. The platform finds unknown, advanced and insider threats that other approaches miss and dramatically increases the efficiency of security operations center teams. The capabilities and sophistication of the nLighten platform have been unattainable for all but the very largest of organizations, costing tens of millions of dollars of investment per year to implement and maintain. Cybraics is making these capabilities available to organizations at a fraction of that cost and revolutionizing the way organizations approach cybersecurity, through the unique innovations included in the nLighten platform.

“The nLighten platform is a combination of innovations from across artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, big data analytics and cloud technologies,” said Jamie Dos Santos, CEO of Cybraics. “Georgia has a history of technology innovation, and TAG has been a great facilitator of collaboration between organizations, individuals, and companies in all industries. We are excited to be recognized as one of the leaders in this dynamic community and look forward to joining everyone at the Georgia Technology Summit.”

Fort Lauderdale, FL, Atlanta, GA, Arlington, VA, 2/16/2017- Today, Cybraics is announcing the name of our extraordinary, new security platform: nLighten. nLighten combines cyber security analytics and artificial intelligence into an as-a-service model to make the most advanced detection capabilities available to enterprises of all sizes.

Launched in late 2016, the nLighten platform is already supporting customers in healthcare, financial, energy and high-tech industries, as well as state and federal government. The platform has been delivering on its primary value proposition by finding previously unknown threats, including: APTs, targeted attacks and insider threats.

nLighten’s artificial intelligence engine has been learning and building knowledge for more than 12 months, which has dramatically reduced the volume of false positives that are common with other cyber security solutions, and driven the true-positive rate to over 95%.

The combination of cyber security analytics and artificial intelligence, delivered as an end-to-end service, removes the barrier to entry and radically increases the success rate of these technologies.

Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. – July 18, 2016

Cybraics is excited to introduce their new Artificial Intelligence Based Cyber Analytics Service. The Cyber Analytics-as-a-Service platform combines math, science and machine learning to provide a comprehensive end-to-end cyber hunting solution. “We have infused supervised, unsupervised and semi-supervised learning approaches to create the most advanced learning system the market has seen,” says Rich Heimann, Chief Data Scientist for Cybraics. “This service allows us to learn at the pace of our adversaries, rather than reactively after a security incident occurs like traditional solutions. With our analytic pluralist approach, we are able to collectively use multiple analytics to provide complete coverage of the threat space.”

Cybraics merges the efficiency of machines with human intuition to provide a full comprehensive threat intelligence platform. “Introducing artificial intelligence into the cyber security world is a revolutionary ideology that will soon shift the way we secure our networks,” states CEO Jamie Dos Santos. “We believe the current security paradigm is flawed, and the time for a modern approach is necessary in the fight against cyber adversaries. Our approach allows us to go far beyond traditional protection and detection tools that are based on rules and signatures. We can now identify, classify and prioritize unknown threats that other approaches miss and reduce investigation time by orders of magnitude.”
