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

o K2’s unique, deterministic approach offers industry’s first true detection of zero day attacks, no need for prior attack knowledge with patent-pending OCFI technology
o Detailed attack telemetry, including targeted filename and line of code, pinpoints exact vulnerability location for quicker remediation
o Lightweight, non-intrusive approach to security that validates code execution

Brief Overview

K2 Cyber Security offers a revolutionary approach to web application security and the detection of zero day attacks. By focusing on the proper execution of the application itself, and not relying on prior attacks/behavior, K2 is the first in the industry to truly identify new zero day attacks and associated vulnerabilities.
K2’s Security Platform is based on a unique, patent-pending technology called Optimized Control Flow Integrity (OCFI). Rather than rely on more traditional technologies like signatures, heuristics, or ML/AI, which base their detection on the understanding of prior attacks, OCFI uses a deterministic approach to security. OCFI’s innovative design uniquely maps the DNA of each application at runtime. By fundamentally understanding the intention of the underlying code, K2’s Security Platform verifies that the code execution and API calls are functioning in the way the code was written and intended. Zero day exploits or other attacks are immediately identified as any deviation to the code’s correct execution.
K2 protects web applications running in production from zero day, OWASP Top 10, and memory- based attacks, while providing virtual patching for existing vulnerabilities. K2’s OCFI technology has 8 patents granted/pending.
