Lewis Rhodes Labs (LRL) announced on Monday the launch of its new Cyber Microscope, which is based on an innovative breakthrough that allows the device to increase detection speeds and resolution precision by more than 100 times.
“The improved speed and accuracy of the LRL Cyber Microscope should allow us to dramatically reduce the false positive rate in our alert database, and we are collaboratively researching methods to use the temporal nature of the Neuromorphic processor to detect novel behavioral variants,” John Zepper, director of systems mission engineering at Sandia National Laboratories, said.
The revolutionary system that allows such enhanced capabilities is called the Cyber Optimized Neuromorphic Processor. In conjunction with the Cyber Optimized Neuromorphic Processor, LRL Cyber Microscopes also utilizes a PCIe-compatible interface card, driver and PCRE compiler integrated into Suricata, which allows the device to be produced in a more cost effective manner than similar products.
“LRL is addressing these issues with the revolutionary Cyber Microscope, which we offer at a disruptive price point,” David Follett, co-founder of Lewis Rhodes Labs, said.“LRL makes it affordable to deploy Cyber Microscopes virtually everywhere, and by doing so, can clearly identify and detect actionable threats. By using LRL’s Neuromorphic processor to drastically improving the resolution and speed of anomaly detection, we’re providing security analysts with unprecedented visibility into potential threats.”
The sheer amount of data being processed in laboratory experiments like the ones at LRL generates a large number of false positives, or data that is close enough to the desired result that it will often fool the existing level of technology. By utilizing the Cyber Microscope’s enhanced capabilities, the number of false positives can be greatly reduced.
“The process of extracting real threats from the typically high number of scanned anomalies is a never-ending challenge for security analysts using any intrusion detection system,” Sean Pike, program director of next-generation data security and eDiscovery and information governance at IDC, said. “Analysts need a cost-effective threat detection solution that provides them with the speed and accuracy to dramatically improve resolution and performance, and ultimately recognize real issues.”
