INTRUSION’s New Cybersecurity Solution, Shield, Brings Government-Level Cybersecurity to Businesses

INTRUSION Inc. has announced that it is now taking pre-orders on its newest cybersecurity solution for the enterprise, INTRUSION Shield™. Shield takes an entirely new approach to protecting an organization’s network by not merely alerting to cyber threats but immediately neutralizing them, keeping businesses safe without the need for human intervention.

INTRUSION is opening pre-orders for the solution based on positive results seen in the preliminary stages of beta testing, where Shield was able to stop more than 400,000 threats to three companies in just the first three days of testing.

Shield combines plug-n-play hardware, software, global data and services, along with real-time artificial intelligence (AI), to deliver a new and unique layer of cyber defense for businesses. Unlike other solutions, which focus on keeping out malicious incoming traffic, Shield works on the premise that cybercriminals already exist within your network. This means Shield is constantly monitoring all incoming and outgoing traffic.

Shield employs the use of this real-time AI to analyze INTRUSION’s threat-enriched, Big Data Cloud – the world’s largest inventory of IP relationships. Using its Process-flow Technology™, the solution applies signatures and rules based on DNS, TCP, UDP – and the connections between DNS and IPV4 and IPV6 addresses – to learn the behavior and patterns of cybercrime activity. Shield then uses this intelligence while it continuously monitors incoming and outgoing traffic to identify new threats.

Finally, the solution goes beyond monitoring by instantly stopping traffic to and from any malicious sources, protecting companies from ransomware, viruses, malware, data theft and more. Whereas other cybersecurity solutions only identify possible threats and overwhelm network managers with alerts, Shield instantly blocks these threats. This is important as security personnel cannot begin to research the thousands of daily alerts they receive, thereby allowing most attacks to go unnoticed.

Until now, cybersecurity has failed to protect U.S. businesses, costing them billions of dollars. The average cost of a data breach in corporate America is $3.9 million, according to a study by IBM and the Ponemon Institute, and Cybersecurity Ventures estimates that more than 60% of small businesses hit by ransomware in 2019 went bankrupt.

“Cybercriminals know that they can hold businesses – and our economy – hostage through breaches, ransomware, denial of service attacks and more. This is cyberwarfare, and we need to shift our mindset around cybersecurity in order to protect against it,” said Jack B. Blount, president and CEO of INTRUSION. “We’ve seen firsthand the damage these criminals can inflict, so we are bringing our government-level cybersecurity solution to the commercial market to help defend businesses that keep our economy running.”

With Shield, companies benefit from the expertise and experience of cybersecurity experts without the need to hire experts or take time away from existing security staff. Shield requires only a simple, plug-n-play installation of a network appliance, and it delivers real-time and monthly reporting detailing the thousands of blocked threats in any given period of time.
