ELEVATE - Automated Detection & Response Control Access Network Security Platform to face the most sophisticated security threats

Project description

A complete, integrated, autonomous digital security solution

Cybersecurity is a priority for companies increasing business online. Corporate cybersecurity ensures that the computer and data network is secured from unauthorised access. In this context, the EU-funded ELEVATE project will bring to market a new technology based on network access control. It’s a complete, integrated, autonomous and software-defined digital security solution for corporate networks. It includes security automation and orchestration and managed detection and response capabilities. Its main benefits include full visibility and profiling in real time of all types of devices connected to the network. It also maximises the efficiency of limited IT staff, reducing costs by about 20 % and increasing productivity by 25 %. Overall, the cybersecurity coverage of an organisation increases up to 50 %.

Objective

Opencloud Factory brings to the market ELEVATE, a pioneering solution based on NAC (Network Access Control) technologies which intends to disrupt the digital cybersecurity market with a complete, integrated, autonomous and software-defined digital security solution for corporate networks. ELEVATE includes Security Automation and Orchestration (SA&O) and Managed Detection and Response (MDR) capabilities. Its main benefits stem from (1) obtaining 100% visibility and profiling in real-time of all kind of devices connected to the network, increasing visibility in 60% (2) reducing up to 35% on Mean Time To Detect (MTTD) and Mean Time To Respond (MTTR), (3) allow a higher degree in the orchestration and integration of the cybersecurity tools, attaining a global synergy of all infrastructure, resulting in an efficiency increase of 25%, (4) maximising the efficiency of limited IT staff, reducing costs (20%), an increasing the overall productivity (25%), (5) increasing up to 50% the cybersecurity coverage of organizations.To complement these benefits we propose three unprecedented features: (1) Automated Provisioning, (2) Automated Threat Response and Integration and (3) Advanced Analytics. The novelty of ELEVATE mostly lies in the modular architecture and it is autonomous in the detection and response, minimizing the need for human resources both in the analysis (threat detection and diagnostic) and in the execution of tasks (threat response). To ensure the viability of ELEVATE we will assess its technical, commercial and financial feasibility and the IPR exploitation, and define our Business Plan so as to achieve the market uptake in the targeted European countries in 2021. ELEVATE meets the Cybersecurity policy stated in the Digital Single Market strategy to further improve EU cyber resilience and response and is also aligned with the objectives of the GDPR, whose aim is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world.
