Intrusion Detection System

Accurately and efficiently detect, triage and respond to threats including ransomware, fileless malware, and zero-day malware in real time.

BluVector Cortex is transforming how security teams detect, triage and respond to security events.

Born to leverage machine learning for advanced threat detection, BluVector has invested over nine years developing our next-generation IDS, BluVector Cortex.

Backed by Comcast, our solution empowers security teams to get real answers about real threats, allowing businesses and governments to operate with confidence that their data and systems are protected.
