Wallarm today announced it has joined the NVIDIA Inception program, which is designed to nurture startups revolutionizing industries with advancements in AI and data sciences.
Wallarm’s focus is on applying machine learning to protect modern web applications and APIs. As applications and attacks grow in complexity and sophistication, traditional protection methods become more cumbersome or break altogether. Wallarm’s approach is principally different and relies on AI to profile applications and to decide what’s normal within the application profile.
Automated application environment learning makes Wallarm a good fit for highly distributed Cloud infrastructures that change often. It also means that it can detect Zero-day threats in addition to threats that are known.
“Wallarm has used NVIDIA technology to run Reinforcement Learning algorithms, because the large amount of on-board RAM makes it a great fit for training Recurrent Neural Networks with a large number of layers and lots of data,” said Ivan Novikov, CEO of Wallarm. “We like the community aspect of the Inception program. As an AI early adopter, we look forward to sharing our experience, with younger startups looking to innovate.”
NVIDIA’s Inception program is a virtual accelerator program that helps startups during critical stages of product development, prototyping and deployment. Every Inception member gets a custom set of ongoing benefits, from hardware grants and marketing support to training with deep learning experts.
“It is great to see the diversity of Inception members growing in support of AI driven applications across the ecosystem. Advancing deep learning technologies through continued sharing via open source projects is very important,” said Arjun Dutt, director of Inception program at NVIDIA.
Wallarm is an innovative AI startup focused on web application and API security. With the help of machine learning, Wallarm reconstructs application context and API logic by looking at application requests and responses and uses this information to automatically create custom security protection rules for each application release, making it a great fit for CI/CD environments with frequent releases. Founded in 2013, Wallarm has already helped hundreds of SaaS and enterprise customers discover and fix critical vulnerabilities, automate web application and API runtime protection and prioritize security risks. Wallarm is a privately held company headquartered in Menlo Park, California and backed by Y-combinator, Partech Ventures, and other investors.
