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

Increased efficiency
Experienced insights — a “second pair of eyes” — from some of the nation’s top defenders, applied via IronDefense’s Expert System to supplement limited cyber staff and to enable faster, more effective prioritization and mitigation/response. Advanced network behavioral analysis that leverages proven AI/ML and analytics used to defend highly secure networks, allowing the ability to scale up analysis to the largest enterprises.

Applied decision support
IronDefense optimizes the efficiency and effectiveness of security operators by putting the right information at their fingertips (such as vetted, rated alerts to reduce alert fatigue), along with a level of analysis and recommendations that help them assess and respond quickly and effectively to identified anomalies. It is why Gartner in their 2020 NDR Market Guide highlighted our strong hunt capability.

Real-time sharing across communities of defenders
IronDefense enables defenders to optimize their efforts by eliminating the need for each company to individually research, triage, investigate and respond to the same observed threats in their respective environments, driving faster decisions. Sharing identified network anomalies and cyber defender insights in real-time across a community of peers makes everyone more effective.

Brief Overview

IronDefense is the industry’s only Network Detection & Response and Collective Defense solution for hybrid cloud networks. IronDefense applies proprietary behavioral analytics based on machine learning and packet-level cyber hunt technology to detect sophisticated threats and attacks by nation state-level actors capable of evading traditional cybersecurity tools. The industry analyst Omdia describes this capability as a “potential game changer” based on “its ability to discern needle-moving insights from encrypted network traffic flows … without the heavy proprietary hardware required by Cisco’s competing Stealthwatch product.”

IronDefense scales from small companies to Fortune 100 companies to deliver advanced Network Detection & Response on-premise or in multi-cloud environments. As the former VP Security Operations Strategy and Architecture of IronNet customer Thomson Reuters validated, “As we look to defend our estate as it integrates with various cloud environments, we were impressed by IronNet’s capabilities, especially in side-by-side testing with other analytic and detection platforms in the market today.” IronDefense works with our IronDome Collective Defense platform to deliver the industry’s only real-time threat visibility, intelligence sharing, and collaboration solution that empowers security operations teams to defend as a unified force against targeted and unknown threats. IronDome features a real-time Correlation Detection Dashboard that also displays peer comments for faster mitigation and response. As Omdia points out, “There is no other solution like it on the market.”
