ROMSEY, England, November 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Perception Virtual, a military-grade network security product, has been selected by a high profile UK metal manufacturer to protect its IT network from cyber-attacks.
Perception Virtual significantly reduces deployment times and will work alongside the manufacturer's existing security systems, giving them cost effective access to this machine-learning cyber threat identification tool. As the enterprise grows, the business can quickly add an additional security layer, without the overheads and disruption normally associated with physical software deployments and extra rack-mounted hardware.
Manufacturing is a significant target for cyber criminals, with network security breaches causing major disruption and impacting business profitability. However, the ability to comprehensively secure networks is often considered something that only large businesses can afford, allowing weaknesses to proliferate across the manufacturing supply chain. These network threats will only grow with the increasing digitisation of manufacturing equipment.
Daniel Driver, Head of Perception Cyber Security, said: "Perception is very quick to deploy and will provide our customer with a visibility of the network that they cannot get from other tools. It will also enable them to identify network security enhancements; audit the network to ensure that policies are being followed; and complete incident investigations far more efficiently."
Perception was originally developed by Chemring Technology Solutions for the UK Ministry of Defence and complements existing computer network security systems by identifying the potential threats that they cannot. The world's first machine-learning and AI-powered network security system, Perception can immediately detect major security flaws when it is first switched on. This allows users to rapidly identify the small changes they can make to greatly reduce the chances of a cyber security breach.
Daniel Driver, Head of Perception Cyber Security, concluded: "Installation costs have sometimes been a barrier to adding an additional layer to network security, but Perception Virtual requires a minimal installation overhead and delivers significantly enhanced network security. Network protection can now be approached proactively, through the identification of risks and vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by cyber criminals. As a business's network evolves, it can also understand better the changing threats to the network and maintain a greater level of security for the future."
