Companies to Provide NVIDIA AI-Accelerated Cybersecurity Platform and Services to Analyze Massive Amounts of Data and Detect Threats Faster
GTC—NVIDIA and Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) today announced an expanded collaboration to bring an AI-enabled, GPU-accelerated cybersecurity platform to customers in the public and private sectors.
The platform enables next-generation incident response systems that help customers identify cybersecurity threats. It is powered by NVIDIA GPU and NVIDIA Morpheusthe only open source, large-scale, GPU-accelerated AI cybersecurity processing framework.
To help customers respond quickly to threats, Booz Allen has developed Cyber Precog, based on the Morpheus platform. Cyber Precog is a GPU-accelerated software platform that provides mission-relevant, operationally-honed AI models and modular pipelines for rapid deployment at the edge. Cyber Precog provides the software paradigm needed to power the Cyber Precog Flyaway Kit, a GPU-powered edge server custom designed to support cyber operations in degraded and disconnected environments.
Cyber Precog enables NVIDIA GPU acceleration of kit data ingestion to 300x the speed of CPUs, while increasing AI training by 32x and AI inference by 24x. This enables Booz Allen customers to achieve single NVIDIA GPU node performance equivalent to 135 CPU-only server nodes.
Booz Allen and NVIDIA are also collaborating on next-generation solutions powered by the cybersecurity platform.
“Traffic moving through the modern data center continues to expand, fueled by innovations like AI and connected devices, and is increasingly susceptible to potential breaches and attacks,” said Justin Boitano, vice president of enterprise platforms at NVIDIA. . “NVIDIA Morpheus enables innovators to create zero-trust technologies that detect and eliminate threats as they arise.”
“Our customers operate in many environments with limited resources,” said Matt Tarascio, senior vice president of Booz Allen. “NVIDIA GPUs, coupled with the NVIDIA Morpheus framework, allow us to push enterprise to the limit so that the best AI, data processing and analytics can be delivered to the mission. The development of Cyber Precog is one example of the many ways we are working rapidly to unlock advanced commerce, develop unique capabilities, and implement scalable solutions, all of which integrate seamlessly into our customers’ missions to help them achieve a cyber advantage.
Morpheus is a GPU-accelerated software framework that gives cybersecurity developers, for the first time, the ability to inspect all network traffic in real time, flag anomalies, and provide insights to help quickly address threats. The latest version of Morpheus includes updates to pre-built workflows, including new viewing capabilities for digital fingerprints and sensitive information detection. New visualizations enable faster threat identification and remediation by security analysts.
The NVIDIA Morpheus Cybersecurity Processing Framework can be deployed in public clouds, hybrid clouds, or hosted on-premises and is available for download at NVIDIA NGC™ and GitHub.
