Deep Instinct Offers Data Storage Protection

Deep Instinct has brought to market its Deep Instinct Prevention for Storage (DPS) solution that "applies a prevention-first approach to storage protection, wherever data is stored," according to the company.

Available as part of the Deep Instinct Prevention Platform, DPS uses a deep learning framework to stop cyber threats from reaching an organization's data, the company said.

How Deep Instinct Prevention for Storage Works

DPS scans a file as soon as it is added to a storage environment or any time a file is modified, Deep Instinct stated. It then quarantines or deletes malicious files before they execute.

Furthermore, DPS natively integrates with the Dell EMC Common AntiVirus Agent (CAVA), NetApp Vscan antivirus scanning solution and other security tools, Deep Instinct noted. It can also be managed via a single console alongside the Deep Instinct for Endpoints (DPE) and Deep Instinct Prevention for Applications (DPA) solutions.

Deep Instinct Adds to Its Leadership Team

The DPS launch comes after Deep Instinct in June 2023 hired Jim Ortbals as its vice president of Americas channels and Ryan Vaupel as its vice president of operations.

Ortbals is focused on growing Deep Instinct's channel program, supporting its existing partners and building new partnerships, the company stated. Prior to joining Deep Instinct, Ortbals led the MSSP, global service provider and distribution routes to market for cloud security company Zscaler. He also has held global channel and field sales leadership companies at VMware, Cisco and other cybersecurity and technology companies over the past 20 years.  

Meanwhile, Vaupel is responsible for laying the "foundation of operational excellence," the company noted. Previously, Vaupel served as senior vice president of global operations at Zimperium, a mobile security platform provider. Vaupel has nearly two decades of technology, enterprise sales, leadership, transformation and operations experience.

Deep Instinct Helps Organizations Identify and Stop Threats

Organizations can use Deep Instinct's deep learning cybersecurity framework to predict and prevent known, unknown and zero day threats, the company said. This framework delivers greater than 99% accuracy and less than 0.1% false-positive rate for threat detections.

MSSPs, MSPs and other technology providers can join Deep Instinct's Stratosphere Partner Program. By doing so, they can integrate Deep Instinct's threat detection and prevention technologies into their portfolios.
