6th June, 2023 – Singapore – Wedge Networks, an innovation leader in Real-Time Threat Prevention solutions, today announced the General Availability (GA) of WedgeIQ™ Nucleation Edition, an innovative, continuous machine-learning based Security Operations, Incident, and Event Management (SIEM) and analytics engine, at Asia Tech x Singapore, Asia’s premier tech event.
Developed as a licensable component of the advanced WedgeARP™ software platform, WedgeIQ™ Nucleation Edition offers a potent response to today’s pressing cybersecurity challenges, particularly the increasingly sophisticated, never-before-seen malware that outmaneuvers current defense systems where Wedge’s patented continuous AI engines are continuously learning to respond to such attacks.
Leveraging a scalable data analytics engine and cutting-edge AI/Machine Learning algorithms, WedgeIQ™ Nucleation Edition introduces a new level of actionable analytics and autonomous data capture to the cybersecurity landscape, pioneering the future of Intelligent Security Operations Centers.
Key features of WedgeIQ™ Nucleation Edition include:
- A continuous learning, patented threat intelligence harvesting process supporting real-time threat prevention.
- Data Fusion ability, offering a comprehensive view of the cyber threat landscape across all digital assets.
- Real-time security events overlay on geo-map, supported by multi-petabytes of distributed, multi-tenant databases.
- Automatic event correlation and alerts on unusual changes in Key Performance Indicator values
- A diverse set of security VNFs, including offensive cyber functions.
- Highly reliable deployments with built-in operational and data redundancy.
This successful launch is the product of comprehensive collaboration between Wedge Networks and esteemed R&D partners, including the University of Calgary, University of Alberta, NRC, Alberta Innovate, and Wedge’s leading commercial partners.
The innovation was tested through the Government of Canada’s Innovative Solutions Canada program’s military track. During this project, CENGN (Canada’s Centre of Excellence in Next Generation Networks) evaluated WedgeIQ on its real-time cyber threat prevention and the integration of AI and machine learning to autonomously produce decision analytics on incoming traffic.
“The importance of cybersecurity continues to grow as the world becomes more dependent on digital technologies, and operations become digitalized. In Canada alone cyber-attacks and data breaches cost Canadians collectively an estimated $3.12 billion a year,” said Alex Edwards, Business Engineering Manager at CENGN. “To see a promising Canadian cybersecurity company like Wedge effectively merge AI/ML and data fusion technologies to substantially enhance their cyber solution is exciting for our innovation community. After rigorously assessing WedgeIQ we confirmed the solution successfully demonstrated the functionality of its critical services and passed all test objectives.”
Dr. Hongwen Zhang, CEO & CTO and Co-founder of Wedge, expressed, “WedgeIQ™ is designed to automate the advanced machine learning process for large-scale security operations, information, and event management in both closed and open environments. We’re honored to have had the opportunity to test this innovation with Shared Services Canada through the Innovative Solutions Canada program.”
Dr. Husam Kinawi, Chief Scientist and Co-founder of Wedge, added, “We are very impressed by CENGN’s testing facilities, methodology, and rapid feedback to our product development team. This collaboration has resulted in a superior product that has been well received by Wedge’s customers, especially government departments.”
