AI for web security

Advanced web-application security using artificial intelligence to detect and classify attack data, providing maintenance-free and continuous protection against web-injection attacks

Commissioned in 2013 by GCHQ and the UK Ministry of Defence, Cyberlytic applied artificial intelligence to combat the most sophisticated of web application threats, addressing the growing problem of high volumes of threat data. The company developed a unique risk-based approach and owns patents that relate to detection through real-time risk assessment and prioritisation of cyber-attacks.

Headquartered in London and with offices in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Cyberlytic works closely with the Centre for Secure IT (CSIT), part of Queen's University Belfast and is recognised as a GCHQ Cyber Academic Centre of Excellence.

Cyberlytic's executive team has extensive experience in cyber operations within highly secure government agencies, where national security is safeguarded.

View on wealth management

The wealth management industry is continuing to adapt to digitisation as people and businesses search for alternative ways to manage money. Technology has changed the way many wealth management businesses serve their customers, providing online services for more flexibility and a modern customer experience. With this come a rising challenge: cybersecurity.

Innovative wealth managers are focusing on driving digital programs to gain competitive advantage. This often means that technology teams do not have the appropriate skills or time to implement an effective information security defence. However, wealth managers are a perfect target for cyberattacks as they collect and process large amounts of valuable data. Web applications remain the hottest attack vector for hackers who can inject malicious code via a company’s website or ‘secure’ portal to extract data. If web applications are not adequately protected and customer data is breached, the implications will be devastating for their integrity and reputation of the brand.

Cyberlytic's revolutionary approach to detecting and preventing web-based attacks will classify attack data, identify threat patterns and detect anomalies. By analysing web server traffic in real-time incident response can be prioritised. Large security teams are not required to manage the software as it is easy to deploy via Cyberlytic's secure cloud and requires little training.
