Products and Services

GuardiCore provides real-time threat detection and mitigation for software defined data centers. APT attacks are detected once inside the data center using software defined networking (SDN) technology. The technology works in three stages: Detection in real-time, based on traffic analysis within a hypervisor, Understanding via forensic analysis using Automated Semantic Analysis, and Reaction to mitigate spread of the threat. The company provides a component called “Active Honeypot?” which is designed to evade attacks by rerouting traffic to highly monitored “ambush” servers so that data centers can eliminate threats in their early stages.
