In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

1. THE MOST ROBUST TRUE HARDWARE ROOT-OF-TRUST
While the phrase "Hardware Root-of-Trust" has reached buzzword status in the cybersecurity industry, actual implementations fall short of maintaining the chain of trust down to the root hardware. All existing implementations eventually hand off the chain of trust to software at which point the trust can be compromised. Axiado's patent-pending technology maintains the hardware root-of-trust, providing the most secure protection in the industry.

2. INDUSTRY'S FIRST HARDWARE AI-BASED THREAT MITIGATION
Traditional rule-based threat mitigation can only defend against known attacks. By the time another attack is identified, and the rules are updated, the damage by such an attack may already have been done. Axiado offers the market's first hardware AI-based threat evaluation and mitigation. This technology "learns" the normal behaviors on one's platform and identifies anomalies that may indicate the presence of an attack that the rules miss. This AI is used to detect aberrations in I/Os such as network and peripheral traffic as well as physical side-channel attacks against devices on the platform such as voltage, clock and temperature irregularities.

3. TECHNOLOGY PORTABLE TO ALL DEVICES IN ALL MARKETS
Axiado's roadmap implements these technologies in a wide range of silicon offerings to address all markets that require cyberthreat protection. While network servers immediately come to mind, personal devices such as laptops, cell phones and tablets are susceptible to such attacks. Cellular network base stations, Industrial IoT systems and network appliances such as cable set-top boxes are also open to attacks. This list can keep growing and Axiado's roadmap grows with it, offering different form factors, feature sets and power profiles to meet the needs of each of these markets.
