Security Stronghold

  1. 1. IT Pro-active Probabilistic Antivirus Smart UAC
  2. 2. Project Description • Traditional antivirus systems do not manage to update the databases in time, because thousands of new threats appear every day • Some antiviruses entrusts a decision-making process to the user – the weakest part in the security system • Smart UAC provides users with an antivirus solution that is finally able to prevent virus epidemic without waiting for database updates, and not putting the responsibility of decision-making to the user • Smart UAC is antivirus system of new generation combining best aspects of existing methods: static probabilistic analysis, cloud computing and signatures
  3. 3. The Market • Antivirus market (estimated at $17B) is very competitive. More than thousand companies produce antivirus solutions for the wide range of different consumers. 40% of the market consist of free security related products. • The world antivirus market grows at the rate of 10-15% each year. The Russian market grows 25% every year. • Popular traditional antiviruses are: Kaspersky Internet Security, Norton Antivirus, Avast Pro Antivirus, McAfee Antivirus and Eset Nod32 Antivirus. • There are no products that deliver unknown (totally new) viruses detection rate more than 15% as of now. This is why virus epidemics still thrive.
  4. 4. • Detects as much as 90% of all UNKNOWN and TOTALLY NEW viruses • Takes the user’s psychology into account • Is able to educate and spread knowledge across its cloud • Complex product offer: antivirus, cyber threats protection, Internet security, parental controls, content filtering, system fix and privacy controls Technology Advantages
  5. 5. • Cloud and Signature based scanning is completed • AI probabilistic static analysis and content filtering are in progress, 70% ready • In the near future: full completion of the functional of anti-virus system; release of Pro, Enterprise and Free versions; active patenting; carrying out the expanded PR campaign; active sales • Has got 2 patents (probabilistic antivirus analysis of objects), 1 patent application filed (the extraction device of the stable vectors of features). Current R&D Status
  6. 6. Current Technology Metrics • Artifical Intelligence module identifies TOTALLY NEW, UNKNOWN and PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN viruses with 74% True Positive rate and less than 1% False Positive rate. Post-processing system decreases False Positive rate to as low as 0,1%. Viruses doesn’t need to be executed to be detected – all analysis is static. • Cloud Scanning module already knows more than 7 million viruses and growing • Overall detection rate with 70% of known and 30% of unknown viruses in collection of 10% viruses and 90% legitimate programs is over 99,8%.
  7. 7. Team/Company • The team of 16 is led by Konstantin Artemyev, CEO. 8 years experience. Graduate from Astrakhan State Technical Univ. (ASTU), Automated Process Controlling Systems (APCS). • Valeriy Laptev, technology adviser, 20-years’ experience at ASTU. PhD, associate prof. of Automated systems of information control and processing chair. • Since May, 2009 Security Stronghold company is the official partner of Intel® corporation
  8. 8. • Experience in R&D and sales – 12 products in antimalware and data protection, over 1,6 million installations worldwide, over 14k clients worldwide Team/Company
  9. 9. Project Leader • Konstantin Artemyev – head of team, CEO and owner of Security Stronghold Company. Experience of international business activity - 8 years; • Scientifical activity: winner of the competition "Conference of Young Scientists on Information Search", Taganrog 2008; author of several scientific publications; • Role in team: CEO, marketing, advertizing, communications with partners, system architecture, design of technologies and processes, subsystems of artificial intelligence, the general project management. • Entrepreneur of the Year of 2011 and 2012 in Astrakhan region
  10. 10. Investment Opportunity • Seeking $1.55M structured as $1.2M of equity investment, $.33M Skolkovo grant and $.02M other funds to complete collective intelligence functionality; to release alpha, beta and commercial version of the product, start sales and scale up. • Invested to the point: $200k of internal funding • Financing period: 1 year • Start of international sales: early 2014 • Strategic partnerships as of now – over 10
