Nozomi Networks Unveils AI-Powered Cybersecurity Analysis, Response Engine

AI (Artificial Intelligence) concept. Communication network.

Nozomi Networks has brought to market Vantage IQ, an artificial intelligence-based analysis and response engine designed to help organizations address security gaps and resource limitations in mission-critical operational infrastructure, according to the company.

Commenting on Vantage IQ, Andrea Carcano, Nozomi's co-founder, said:

"In the case of critical-infrastructure security, Vantage IQ is a game-changer, leveraging artificial intelligence to fundamentally change the way security professionals understand and respond to operational risk. We believe it's the way cybersecurity data will be queried, analyzed and acted on going forward."

How Nozomi Networks Vantage IQ Works

Vantage IQ uses AI and machine learning to transform threat detection and remediation, a Nozomi spokesperson told MSSP Alert. The engine provides AI-assisted data analysis to help security teams reduce cyber risk and speed up incident response.

Key features of Vantage IQ include:

  • AI-powered insights, along with an Insights Dashboard where alerts are automatically correlated, prioritized and supported with root-cause information and deep neural networks that identify activity patterns in network data
  • AI-based queries and analyses that allow users to leverage natural language queries and get answers to common questions about vulnerabilities, network assets and other environmental details
  • Advanced predictive monitoring, which provides early warnings about system behaviors that deviate from the norm
  • Time Series feature that augments the Vantage SaaS platform's ability to alert on network changes with an additional level of alerting on unusual changes in the bandwidth of activity going through sensors monitoring those networks

Vantage IQ will be available as an optional add-on to Nozomi's Vantage platform in the third quarter of 2023 from the company and its global network of channel partners. In the future, Vantage IQ will alert users about process variables as well, Nozomi said.

Accenture Security, IBM Security and Mandiant Join Nozomi Program

The Vantage IQ announcement comes after Accenture Security, IBM Security and Mandiant in April 2023 started working with Nozomi to deliver critical infrastructure tools and services. As members of Nozomi's Elite Cyber Defenders Program, these companies can use Nozomi's technologies to provide organizations with access to cybersecurity defense tools, expert-trained field resources and operational technology (OT) threat intelligence, according to a prepared statement.

Nozomi delivers products, services and solutions that provide organizations with network and asset visibility, threat detection and insights into operational technology and Internet of Things (IoT) environments. The company also provides a partner program for MSSPs.
