BluVector Awarded SAFETY Act Designation by the Department of Homeland Security

After a rigorous application and due diligence process the U.S. Department of Homeland Security granted BluVector a DHS SAFETY Act Designation in May 2016.

Deploying BluVector as part of an enterprise security ecosystem now includes a level of decreased risk due to this Designation, providing peace of mind relatively few security technologies can provide.

About the DHS SAFETY Act Designation

Post-September 11, Congress enacted the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies (SAFETY) Act in 2002 to reassure private companies that were reluctant to deploy security technologies and services in the private sector for fear the company’s technology would be impacted by an act of terrorism and be held responsible for damages.

The goal of the SAFETY Act is to encourage the development and deployment of effective anti-terrorism products and services by providing liability protections.

BluVector®, built with patented machine learning and cutting edge cyber hunting capabilities, provides enterprises with faster, more accurate malware detection and response capabilities, helping security analysts to detect, investigate and remediate advanced cyber threats to their networks in minutes (not hours, days or never).

BluVector easily integrates with organizations’ existing security solutions, including security information event management (SIEM), threat intelligence data feeds and portals, and post analyzers such as sandboxes to deliver game changing malware detection and alerting capabilities. BluVector delivers significantly improved speed, accuracy and cost-efficiency to enterprises, helping them to stay ahead of threats and can dramatically reduce both the number of successful attacks and the millions of dollars spent each year hunting and remediating security breaches.

BluVector Machine Learning Detection

Unlike traditional solutions which rely on signatures or rules to detect “known” threats, BluVector can detect “unknown” threats — such as zero-day malware and APTs — through its patented machine learning engine which distinguishes between benign and malicious code using 30 file-type classifiers. Operating at wire speed, BluVector scans 32- & 64-bit Windows, PDF, OSX, Linux, Office, APK as well as many common image and compressed file formats in milliseconds. Ground breaking new artificial intelligence on-premises evolves the classifiers for greater accuracy and lower false positives.
