U2opia, a consortium of technology and administrative executives with extensive experience in both industry and defense, has exclusively licensed Cybersecurity technologies from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory Resilience and Intelligence Division that offer new methods for advanced cybersecurity monitoring in real-time. Situ, a system for identifying and visualizing suspicious behavior from real-time cybersecurity data, and unconcealable signatures of malware will begin its public testing next week.
ORNL's technologies are integrated into U2opia's anomaly detection system to deliver advanced security capabilities with an Artificial Intelligence-informed visualization tool. The software can be deployed quickly with no added hardware and limited human engagement.
"Identifying and quickly responding to attempted cybersecurity attacks is an urgent need across government and industry," said Susan Hubbard, deputy for science and technology at ORNL.
"Cybersecurity is the most top-of-mind issue for many of the educational, healthcare, government, and financial leaders that we are already talking to. Vendors and partners of these institutions are prioritizing the improvement of their digital security constantly, so we are thrilled to team up with U2opia, to pull through some required testing together to see how it stands up in the public markets. The fact that we get to partner with another minority and women-owned firm, like U2opia, on an opportunity like this is just icing on the cake." - Lucy Howell
The Situ team led by John Goodall, includes Kelly Huffer, Joel Reed, and Dave Richardson is based on years of ORNL research and development in anomaly detection algorithms that are rooted in machine learning and probabilistic modeling. The technology was supported by funding through ORNL's Laboratory Directed Research and Development program, the Department of Defense, DOE, and DHS.
UT-Battelle manages ORNL for the Department of Energy's Office of Science, the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States. The Office of Science is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, visit energy.gov/science.
