Montreal company ARC4DIA Cyber Defense has put its proprietary platform, SNOW, to the test at two recent invite-only U.S. military exercises, Red Flag from July 11-29 at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, and Cyber Flag from June 20-30 at Suffolk, Virginia, resulting in the platform being obtained and used within a range of U.S. military agencies.
These two military exercises bring together the “best of the best” in the cyber security industry from across the U.S. and allied nations to participate in full spectrum simulated military training and operations.
“We are honoured to have been selected to participate in these large scale military events and to showcase the value of SNOW and its unique offerings,” says ARC4DIA CEO Pierre Roberge. “SNOW was well received at both events and delivered on all fronts. We are thrilled with the positive results, which we believe is a testament to the product, and its unparalleled ability to outperform the rest.”
Cyber attacks obviously occur at incredible speeds without any warning.
ARC4DIA’s proprietary heuristics platform works with the active oversight of the company’s experts, who have previous experience with global military, national security agencies, government, and academic institutions, to not only prevent or mitigate the attack, but also to provide insight into the attacker’s identity and motivations.
ARC4DIA can work with the client to craft misinformation flowing back to the attacker, and work to lure them into leaving a digital trail, exposing them to positive attribution and potential future prosecution.
Presented as a host-based managed hunt solution, SNOW combines a proprietary technology with security analysis, offering endpoint protection against Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).
Juniper Research projects that cybercriminal data breaches will cost businesses US$2.1 trillion globally by 2019, almost four times the estimated cost of breaches in 2015.
Privately held ARC4DIA Cyber Defense, founded in 2010, specializes in combating a sophisticated form of APT cyber attacks, and protects more than $40 billion dollars in assets globally for government agencies, as well as mid to large scale enterprises in a variety of sectors.
With headquarters in Montreal, ARC4DIA also has offices in Vilnius, New York and London.
In May, ARC4DIA presented at NATO’s 8th International Conference on Cyber Conflict (CyCon), to an audience consisting of more than 500 stakeholders in cyber defense industries, including prime ministers, heads of state, and national security teams, while also participating as experts on panel discussions.
