There is a change underway in how the United States federal government operates, specifically the defense government, which is tasked with handling cybersecurity. Under the Biden administration, a landscape will be created for cybersecurity firms and technologies to come together and cooperate.
In May 2021, President Biden released an executive order stating that all federal agencies should adopt zero trust security. This means that all users inside or outside the organization can only get access to data or information after they have been authenticated and verified. The procedure must be followed whenever the user wants access to secured files and applications. The White House has proposed giving real-time situational awareness to the army and other federal agencies by giving them access to monitoring systems.
Wouldn’t it be great to detect a break-in attempt before it happens? It is possible through cyber anomalies! Cybersecurity anomaly detection is identifying the odd happenings or events in the system that may suggest a security breach, security mistakes, structural flaws, or fraud in processing data. Machines that learn to detect anomalies detect a lot of false anomalies ranging from excessive logins to sudden rises in logins from remote locations. The sudden increase in login traffic became a new problem during Covid.
Cybersecurity And Entanglement
The growing number of remote users was a challenge during the Covid outbreak, which led to an increase in cyber threats. The U.S. army looked to the private sector to find a solution to the problem. Army Analytics Group (AAG), under the direction of the secretary of the army, began searching for ways to prevent cyber anomaly bottlenecks. In June 2021, AAG’s director took an offer from Entanglement Inc to try their proprietary technology.
The new technology has a terminal display that could warn of a potential cyber attack. The Entanglement technology detected anomalies three times more efficiently than the previous methods. According to the AAG report, the technology uses Groq hardware and quantum-inspired software to detect anomalies. Due to the AAG efforts, 120,000 intrusions were detected per second. Groq and Entanglement’s fusion of quantum simulation achieved an anomaly detection rate of 72 million inferences per second. Entanglement has been able to achieve 100 million inferences per second.
During the pandemic, permissions were given by the white house to validate the Entanglement platform, which used a quantum simulator to distribute Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) throughout the US. There was a 90 percent improved performance in the technology. Entanglement applies the same method to develop a vaccine distribution and administration model, which may have solved the biggest problem of completing the vaccination process quickly and efficiently. However, it came to be adopted by the authorities.
Entanglement Inc. is an indicator of a larger picture of how things will converge and process in the future. Such companies are all working towards protecting data and securing networks in the future. Cybersecurity clients like the federal government and Pentagon are realizing that they should make arrangements before the security breach. Entanglement Inc. is one of those companies focusing on where the future of cyber security lies.
