Hyderabad, May 10 (IANS) Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning cyber security tools developer BluSapphire on Thursday announced the opening of its Advanced Threat Research Centre (ATRC) and Security Operations Centre (SOC) here.
At the ATRC and SOC facility, BluSapphire will actively test the latest malware techniques used by attackers and develop defence techniques using advanced Machine Learning models.
The company also unveiled three new variants of its flagship multi-vector based malware and zero-day attack defence tool ‘BluSapphire’.
BluSapphire security software uses a combination of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics to detect, proactively respond and remediate threats in milliseconds.
BluSapphire’s experts have spent the last four years in researching complex malware behaviours and building advanced Machine Learning models that span multiple vectors enabling early detection of threats and a rapid response.
“With the opening of our new facility, we are firmly placed to consolidate our technological capabilities and building more Vertical based research teams that will augment our product development with Industry-specific solutions helping Defence, Finance, Manufacturing, Pharma, Education, and SMEs,” Kiran Vangaveti, Founder of BluSapphire, told reporters.
BluSapphire software does not require constant updating and also works in air-gapped networks. It is offered as a service and gives the client a discretion to deploy it on-premise or off-premises.
Venu Thotakura, BluSapphire Director-Sales and Operations, said the company witnessed 60 per cent YoY growth, and for FY18-19, it is targeting a 300 per cent growth. It expects to grow a headcount of 500 in Hyderabad over the next two years.
While the company is currently bootstrapped by Vangaveti and is profitable, it is partnering with strategic alliances to expand its operations into major markets in the European Union and the Middle East in the near future.
