The solution’s continual source of product and services for the channel make it attractive to channel providers and end user organizations everywhere.
guardDog.ai’s cloud-based software service and companion device work together to simplify network security by exposing invisible threats on networks in “edge territory.” The solution’s patented technology addresses and prevents cybersecurity threats before they compromise network environments, using a cloud-based Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered database to see and thwart these attempted exploits before they can enter the network and succeed in planting viruses, phishware or ransomware attempts.
The solution is designed to make advanced cybersecurity accessible for small, mid-market, and distributed organizations without complexity. It can be easily deployed on hardware, in virtualized environments, embedded systems, and more, offering automatic protection at the network level.
Additionally, management of the service, incident and severity level reporting, and access to additional advanced features are accessed through a cloud-based security operations dashboard.
“We’re thrilled to stand among the winners circle in the 2022 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards. For the first time, we’re providing the world with a cybersecurity system that is accessible to virtually everyone. It can see the risks device management solutions don’t cover and can typically thwart any attempted exploit it detects in milliseconds,” said Peter Bookman, guardDog.ai ‘s CEO. “The landscape of cybersecurity has been altered dramatically by a collision of forces and the attack surface has grown exponentially. Traditional solutions are no longer adequate so we will continue to rethink our approach to cybersecurity – making sure it’s intelligent, capable, automatic and simplified.”
