TOKYO, December 21, 2020: Cybernet (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan, President, and CEO: Reiko Yasue,) announced today the signing up of a partner agreement with Deep Instinct, K.K (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; Country Manager: Toshihiro Namiki), the Japanese subsidiary of Deep Instinct Ltd. (Headquarters: New York, USA; CEO: Guy Caspi) to distribute Deep Instinct, an endpoint security software solution that uses artificial intelligence (AI) deep learning technology.
In recent years, cyber attacks have become more sophisticated every day, with an increase in file-less attacks that exploit operating system (OS) tools, such as PowerShell, in addition to conventional software-based attacks using malware.
Now, there is a greater need than ever for security measures that can protect against attacks with a high degree of accuracy. There is a shortage of security engineers and the increase in telework has widened the surface area for attacks, making this a particularly challenging time for cybersecurity.
Deep Instinct is the first and only cybersecurity company to apply end-to-end deep learning to predict, identify, and prevent cyberattacks. Deep learning is an artificial intelligence technique that has made significant achievements in areas beyond cybersecurity, such as image recognition and automated car driving.
Other cybersecurity products use machine learning, but those require an expert to extract the characteristics of the malware and train the machine on data that contains those characteristics. Deep Instinct, on the other hand, trains on 100% of the raw data of millions of actual attack data files and harmless files to create a “prediction model” that can recognize a threat within milliseconds.
By distributing this prediction model as a lightweight agent on each endpoint, Deep Instinct is able to detect and identify attacks – even previously unknown attacks. In addition, since its detection accuracy is high and false positives are extremely low, security measures can be strengthened without increasing the burden on security personnel.
“It’s an exciting time for Deep Instinct to be forming this partnership with Cybernet. As we develop and deploy our expansion into Asia, Cybernet has been an invaluable strategic partner providing keen market knowledge, with significant experience in growing new business lines,” said Guy Caspi, CEO and co-founder of Deep Instinct. “Businesses need cybersecurity solutions that allow them to respond instantly before a breach becomes a problem, this collaboration will enable them to provide this proactive response easily and seamlessly”.
About Deep Instinct
Deep Instinct is the first and only company applying end-to-end deep learning to cybersecurity. Deep learning is inspired by the brain’s ability to learn. Once a brain learns to identify an object, its identification becomes second nature. Similarly, as Deep Instinct’s artificial deep neural network brain learns to prevent any type of cyber threat, its prediction capabilities become instinctive. As a result, any kind of malware, known and new, first-seen malware, zero-days, ransomware, and APT (advanced persistent threat) attacks from any kind are predicted and prevented in zero-time with unmatched accuracy and speed anywhere in the enterprise – network, endpoint, mobile – enabling multi-layered protection.
As a leading CAE technology services company, Cybernet Systems Co., Ltd. has provided software, training services, technical support, and consulting services to a wide variety of fields, including the research and development and design-related sectors of the manufacturing industry and the research institutions of universities and governments, for more than 30 years. Meanwhile, in the ICT sector, the company provides not only the most advanced security solutions but also IT asset management tools and IT operation and management tools that are essential for improving the security level of companies. In recent years, the company has also been proposing solutions that combine CAE with AR and VR in areas such as the IoT, digital twins, big data analysis, and AI.
Cybernet’s brand message is “Energy for your innovation” and it aims to be a company that customers turn to when faced with increasingly diverse and complex technological problems.
