The NODE™ system uses data mining and machine learning technologies to provide a more advanced and adaptable computer network defense. The technology executes data mining and machine learning technologies and algorithms over the network hosts; i.e., over the entire computing fabric.
The ubiquity of computing systems and networks has vastly improved the speed and ease of gathering, storing, and disseminating information. Networking on a global scale, however, also gives rise to a significant disadvantage: network vulnerability. Securing data, particularly with respect to sensitive national security data and data transmissions, is a paramount concern, particularly given the increasing sophistication of computer terrorism.
