DeepArmor and The Future of Cyber

After months of hard work, our machine learning anti-virus technology will finally be available for free to members of our beta program! Register now for a chance to become a member.

Modern-day antivirus has become the equivalent of the Windows 98 avatar Clippy—you see it all of the time, but you’re not really sure how it helps you. In fact, over 78% of security professionals no longer trust antivirus simply because it is not able to keep up with the state of the art in malware. Things like Domain Generated Algorithms and obfuscation have far surpassed the detection capabilities of the signature-based tools that we all use today. This is the bad news.

Even worse news is that cyber crime is growing. According to the Singapore Minister of Home Affairs, Law Shanmugam, an estimated $2 Trillion will be lost through cybercrime by 2019. This is a recipe for disaster, and the major reason why both state and federal governments are making cyber security the top priority.

To combat this growing problem and technological deficiency, SparkCognition is proud to release the first cognitive antivirus solution to the market, DeepArmor. DeepArmor takes a unique approach to endpoint protection by leveraging neural networks, advanced heuristics, and complex data science to find and remove malicious files. Instead of looking at static signatures, or even exploding files in a sandbox, DeepArmor looks at the DNA of every file to identify if any components are suspicious or malicious in nature. DeepArmor uses cognitive algorithms to constantly learn new malware behaviors and recognize how polymorphic files may try to attack in the future! This keeps every endpoint safe from malware that leverages domain-generated algorithms, obfuscation, packing, minor code tweaks, and many other modern tools. Better yet, this is the perfect defense against terrorizing Zero-Day threats, which can never be captured using existing tools.

DeepArmor is powered by cutting edge technology that is light-years ahead of those used for malware generation or propagation. Pulling from many patented, patent-pending, and proprietary SparkCognition automated model-building techniques, DeepArmor starts by looking at every un-scanned file on a user’s desktop or laptop. It breaks each file into thousands of different pieces for initial review. It then elevates the features using an advanced feature derivation algorithm known as SparkArtemis to turn those thousands of pieces into tens or even hundreds of thousands of individual components. All of these individual components are then run through cognitive and adaptive neural networks to find patterns that may be malicious in nature. Because these cognitive neural networks are trained on a bevy of threat types, from Worms to Ransomware, any threatening patterns present will be unearthed and called out immediately.

“DeepArmor is powered by cutting edge technology that is light-years ahead of those used for malware generation or propagation.”

DeepArmor has been tailored to operate seamlessly behind the scenes on each endpoint, and to only identify real threats without calling out false positives. This gives any user the freedom to do what they would like without the fear that their computer may become infected.

DeepArmor can protect networks at home, in the office, or even company-wide from new and never-before-seen threats that are trying to compromise the system. Best of all, DeepArmor is free! Sign up for a chance to become a member of our beta platform  here.

Be safe out there,
