Balbix: Breach avoidance gets you ahead of the game

Balbix’s predictive breach risk platform is the industry’s first system to leverage predictive analytics and AI to provide enterprises with a comprehensive and continuous risk and resilience calculation visualized via a searchable and clickable heat map.

The platform was designed for CIOs, CISOs and IT security teams who wish to proactively understand their breach risk and cyber-resilience.

The Balbix system can predict critical breach scenarios, help users prioritize security operations and projects, and ultimately improve cyber-resilience.

For some context on Balbix see this overview with CISO and VP of Cyber Practice at Balbix Mukul Kumar:

Senrio: Know your environment

Senrio provides a new kind of security for IoT, industrial control, medical technology and all embedded devices.

From their website:

It is 2018 and chances are you still don\'t actually know what is on your network. The reality for most enterprises is their networks are suffering from major install-gaps and software licensing volume mismatches. Theyre also crawling with unmanaged and rogue devices. The devices you did not provision. The devices you did not buy. And as for the ones you did buy and provision, where are they now and what are they doing? Do you even know?

Until now, answering these questions has been harder than it should be.

PFP Cybersecurity: Providing iron-clad identity for any device and detecting any anomalous behavior

PFP Cyber does something so new and so positive it almost defies categorization. There is no Gartner magic quadrant or Forrester wave for what they do. The closest category of security solutions might be those of identity management, authentication and authorization but they are doing these things for hardware, not people. PFP can tell, by measuring details of power consumption, what a device is and if it is behaving normally. It can use this capability to identify counterfeit hardware. It can also identify when malicious code has been installed on devices because of changes to the power signature of the device. 

For an overview of how they do it, see:

The result: PFP cyber provides a device security platform solving some of the biggest challenges in security today. Solutions are proven to work for IoT, data center servers, PCs, routers, ICS and SCADA devices. Solutions can be used for operational systems and for also confirming products before they are brought into the enterprise. For example, see the brief demo below showing a supply chain assurance solution:
