Tech Data Partners with Deep Instinct to Provide Deep Learning that Thwarts Cyberattacks

Deep Learning Cybersecurity Solution Provides 100 Percent Prevention
Rate When a New Virus or Malware Code is Released

CLEARWATER, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tech
Data
(Nasdaq:TECD) today announced it has partnered with Deep
Instinct
, the first company to apply an end-to-end, deep learning
framework purpose-built for cybersecurity. The deep learning
cybersecurity platform provides enhanced protection by accurately
predicting harmful known and unknown cyberattacks, terminating execution
and preventing any possible damage. Through this partnership, Tech Data
will offer Deep Instinct’s product line to customers in the U.S., Canada
and Latin America.

“We believe artificial-intelligence (AI)-based deep learning tools are
the next wave in advanced cyber protection,” said Alex Ryals, vice
president of security solutions, Americas, at Tech Data. “Because these
tools are autonomous and constantly learning, not only do they require
fewer updates — but, unlike typical machine learning tools, they also
require no additional human intervention and feature engineering, which
helps lower support and management costs. Providing options like Deep
Instinct to our customers allows them to be on the cutting edge of
security, while enabling them to concentrate on growing their
businesses.”

Deep learning methods are based on the layers used in artificial neural
networks and are modeled after how the human brain learns. Deep
Instinct’s deep neural network learns to predict and prevent all types
of cyber threats, both file-based and file-less, and its prediction
capabilities become instinctive. As a result, both known and first-seen
malware and advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks are predicted and
prevented in zero time. The deep-learning-based model also achieves a
much higher detection rate and lower false positive rate for new files,
when compared with the best machine learning solutions available.

Deep Instinct is delivered with unmatched accuracy and speed anywhere in
an enterprise ecosystem, leveraging the power of deep learning’s
predictive capabilities to offer multi-layer protection across all
endpoints, servers, mobile devices and operating systems (Windows,
macOS, Android and ChromeOS). According to tests
conducted by SE
Labs
, Deep Instinct had a 100 percent prevention and interception
rate when a new virus or malware code was released, without interfering
with system performance.

“Deep Instinct prevents cyber threats that others can’t find, and our
deep-learning-based solutions are the only way security teams can
prepare for both known and unknown cyber threats,” said Guy Caspi, CEO,
at Deep Instinct. “As we embark on new routes to our market through this
partnership, we trust Tech Data’s knowledge and ability to expand the
reach of our offerings to security teams across the globe.”

Deep Instinct works with currently deployed products without
interruption and is self-contained on endpoints so that it doesn’t need
a network connection or human intervention to work. The solution also
comes with a dashboard that allows technical teams to review and manage
forensic events that have been prevented.

“We are excited by the prospect of Tech Data bringing AI-based deep
learning tools to support security,” said Yuda Saydun, president of CyVent,
an AI-driven solution provider and Tech Data channel partner. “Our
customers are always looking for the best, most advanced solutions to
support their security needs and based on what we have seen from Deep
Instinct, our customers are going to appreciate the value this solution
will bring to their organizations.”

About Deep Instinct

Deep Instinct is the first company to apply deep learning to
cybersecurity. Deep learning is inspired by the brain’s ability to
learn. Once a brain learns to identify an object, its identification
becomes second nature. Similarly, as Deep Instinct’s artificial deep
neural network brain learns to prevent any type of cyber threat, its
prediction capabilities become instinctive. As a result, any kind of
malware, known and new, first-seen malware, zero-days, ransomware and
APT attacks from any kind are predicted and prevented in zero time with
unmatched accuracy and speed anywhere in the enterprise — Network, EPP,
Mobile — enabling a multi-layered protection. To learn more, visit: http://www.deepinstinct.com.
