In 2017, researchers of Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering at the Polytechnic of Turin (PoliTO) understood that the great changes the Web was protagonist of were about to disrupt cyberattacks nature and the whole surrounding ecosystem as well. The perfect attack vector was the human being: from this intuition, Ermes was born.
We live in a world where 85% of successful cyber attacks leverage human interaction and hit targets within the first 21 hours of their creation. In a scenario like this, traditional protection systems adopting a reputational approach fail to effectively block short-living threats like these in time.
Thanks to its innovative architecture and patented AI algorithms, Ermes offers a dynamic protection against Web threats based not on the reputation of websites but on their real behavior.
Thanks to this behavioral approach, the window of exposure to threats is reduced from days to minutes, guaranteeing an overall real-time protection of 99% on the Web and increasing it by 25% compared to the main solutions on the market.
