Gorilla Technology Launches Security Convergence Platform to Bridge Physical and Digital Security Gap

, a global provider of video intelligence and Internet of
Things (IoT) technology, today launches its Security Convergence
platform, a comprehensive amalgam of Gorilla’s core AI-based video big
data analytics, cyber and network security solutions. An industry first,
the platform leverages machine learning, facial recognition, network
intelligence, AI-powered edge computing and big data video analytics to
tap network traffic and multiple data streams — mobile, CCTV, IP, geo
and more — to improve overall physical and cyber security postures,
enabling law enforcement and businesses to better detect and proactively
predict suspicious activities before they occur.

Many cybercrimes incorporate a physical component, whether from a site
visitor, data center repair or even ATM maintenance. Once they have
physical access to connected network devices, they can install or
download drivers and other malicious code, introducing a vulnerability
that can be later exploited. Because of these factors, cameras ranging
from webcams in data centers to the KPN and ATMs must be investigated —
which most IT professionals do not fully understand – in context to
digital evidence related to cybercrimes.

“Cyber security is often focused on conventional threats, but new
Advanced Persistent Threats and malware attacks are becoming
unconventional, taking advantage of every new attack surface such as in
the physical domain,” said Dr. Spincer Koh, CEO and co-founder of
Gorilla Technology. “Monitoring this environment is becoming
increasingly complex as ever-larger quantities of video and IoT
sensor-related data need to be processed, analyzed and managed in
context to digital forensic evidence. However, this data often becomes
siloed limiting its analytic potential and value.”

The Gorilla Security Convergence platform encompasses five
fully-integrated solution modules that analyze, in a manner never before
possible, disparate data sources, including terabytes of unstructured
data from live video streams, network packets, semi-structured data
(open source intelligence) and structured data such as external
databases. These key components include:

  • Network Surveillance: Network data collection and analysis
  • Cyber Security: Detect, identify and respond to network threat
  • Open Source Intelligence (OSINT): Visualize network insights
  • Electronic Security: IVAR (Intelligent Video Analytics
    Recorder), iPlatform (viewing alerts and live streams), FVS (Fast
    Video Search), BAP (Biometric Authentication Provider)
  • TIBD: Threat Intelligence Big Data — Integration and management

The Security Convergence platform conducts real-time searches and
tracking of people, vehicles and devices or other objects, and can even
be remotely administered. It facilitates watch list creation to specify
both unusual activities that indicate criminal intent and individuals
known to pose a risk, thereby reducing manual effort and limiting human
error. Advanced intrusion detection capabilities identify suspects
quickly, and upon event occurrence, will alert designated personnel with
push notifications to keep security and relevant management aware of
situations occurring.

“Our goal is to bridge the gap between conventional and IT security. For
example, our platform’s robust facial recognition solution, using
advanced AI machine learning, geolocation and other solutions, was able
to foil a cross-national $60 million bank heist in just three days. It
was not only able to reveal the identities of both criminals, but it was
also able to clear the unfortunate owner of the IP address spoofed
during the heist. This is only one of many real-world scenarios that our
platform can play a fundamental role in resolving an investigation
successfully and quickly,” added Koh.

Gorilla Technology will demo its new Security Convergence platform at
ISC West 2018 in Las Vegas from April 11-13 on booth #31097.
