Young scientists from the Cryptomage Inc. startup are developing a cutting-edge application that will take care of cybersecurity. Both large corporations and SMEs will benefit from using it. This project has attracted the interest of the National Centre for Research and Development, which has decided to support the initiative with funds totalling over 1 million euro.
The Cryptomage Cyber Eye™ system as developed by the experts will monitor behaviour at the web level (anomaly detection). It will allow the detection of cyberattacks, irrespective of the method used by the intruder. It will not matter whether a given attack method is unknown or has already been discovered and is known to the public at large.
The web attacks detected currently, especially the ones launched on governmental institutions, often use advanced web steganography methods. They consist of sending concealed information, with such methods used by Russian spies that have been arrested in the USA, for example. Cryptomage Cyber Eye™ is able to detect this type of communication.
The target solution comprises:
Cryptomage Cyber Eye™ will replace the cybersecurity department in small and medium enterprises
Another area of the project that is co-financed by the National Centre for Research and Development is ensuring access to the solution so that small and medium enterprises can be protected against cyberattacks.
Organizations that employ only a dozen or so employees cannot afford to create units responsible for security. In well-developed organizational structures, the departments ensuring security take care of both organizational and technical aspects.
The mechanism operating under Cryptomage Cyber Eye™ will analyze the infrastructure condition on a real-time basis and alert us to threats. It will also take the organizational level into account (selection of the appropriate security policy, procedures, physical security measures, password policies, and instructions for employees, etc.).
