CISO Global Inc. (NASDAQ: CISO), an industry leader as a managed cybersecurity and compliance provider, is reporting the successful testing of its Argo Edge security solution. According to the announcement, the newly launched AI-powered security solution was tested by thousands of hackers under real-world conditions at DEF Con, the premier cybersecurity and hacker convention held in Las Vegas this month. According to the announcement, DEF Con is attended by hackers from across the globe who compete and show off their skills through hacking competitions. The venue provides an opportunity for security vendors to take advantage of the collective cyberhacking talent and test their products.
The announcement noted that, in its first external test, the Argo Edge cloud security platform was deployed by the CISO Global incident response team, Team Hades, on an Intel Nook computer with a standard operating system installed, connecting it to the public WiFi at the convention site Aug. 10–13, 2023. During that time, hackers attacked the platform more than 127,000 times, with none of the attacks being successful at impacting the device’s operating system. Attempts ranged from backdoor and adware attacks to data-stealing software, as well as numerous malware and ransomware types. In addition, Argo Edge’s capabilities allowed it to learn from each of the 127,000 attempts to continuously improve. “This successful real-world test validates our latest platform, which has been developed over the past two years,” said CISO Global CEO David Jemmett in the press release. “Argo Edge has demonstrated its ability to coordinate multiple, layered security solutions to maximize resiliency against an attack. This test at DEF CON shows that a properly integrated, managed and deployed set of security solutions offers real defense against today’s most aggressive threat actors.”
