Narus, Inc., a subsidiary of Boeing [NYSE:BA] and leader in big data analytics for cybersecurity solutions, today announced four new patents, continuing a commitment to innovation in the cybersecurity industry. With these new patents, Narus has received 51 awards overall and 10 this year.
Modern enterprise challenges are evolving as the threat landscape diversifies. Point solutions can no longer keep pace and protect an organization from costly data losses. Narus has been awarded patents across the entire security ecosystem – from zero-day malware protection and IP compression, protocol application engineering and the analysis of social and Web interactions, to the latest in fingerprint security technology.
One of the latest patents from Narus revolutionizes document security, bypassing traditional methods for a more modern approach using image codes as signature verification. Available immediately as a feature in Narus nSystem, this advancement helps solve a significant problem in enterprise security by better protecting sensitive data, and helping organizations act quickly to rapidly detect and quickly resolve breaches.
“Narus’ commitment to creating cutting-edge cybersecurity technology is a key element of our success,” said Antonio Nucci, chief technology officer at Narus. "Our holistic approach to cybersecurity keeps the company finely tuned to the needs of our customers and consistently on the brink of innovation. These patents are a testament to the impressive work done by Narus and participants in the Narus Fellows Program.”
