In wired and Wi-Fi networks, guardDog.ai protects against threats in Edge Territory – the locations outside the perimeter of the network or on attached devices that other solutions can’t see, including the many IoT devices that now occupy home and business networks such as digital doorbells, smart refrigerators, and game systems.
guardDog.ai uses patent-pending artificial intelligence to pre-emptively recognize, expose, and shut down cybersecurity threats before an attack can happen. The service protects its users against the latest threats that arise in the form of ransomware, man-n-the-middle attacks, denial of service, and emerging novel threats, to protect networks and the devices attached to them. As businesses and organizations face increased risks due to the explosion of cyber attacks, new regulations and compliance pressures, and the difficulty of finding and retaining cyber security resources, guardDog.ai is pioneering solutions that can autonomously detect and respond to threats and vulnerabilities.
