MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Acuity Solutions, provider of BluVector®, a next-generation machine-learning malware detection and cyber hunting solution, today announced that after a rigorous application and due diligence process the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) granted BluVector a DHS SAFETY Act Designation.
The “Support Anti-Terrorism By Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002” (SAFETY Act) Designation was issued by DHS after close review of BluVector’s processes and technology. The designation provides liability protections for the manufacturers, sellers, and users of qualified anti-terrorism technologies, but only after satisfying specific technical and economic criteria.
“BluVector is honored to receive the SAFETY Act Designation from the DHS,” said Kris Lovejoy, president and chief executive of Acuity Solutions, provider of BluVector. “Designation is another accomplishment that I believe further validates BluVector’s position as a new leader in the cyber defense movement.”
“Obtaining Designation under the DHS Safety Act is rare in the security market, and it is rarer still to see any cyber security product outside anti-virus tested by a third party validation for efficacy,” said Adrian Sanabria, Senior Security Analyst at 451 Research. “BluVector is one of only five cyber security products to have achieved some level of attestation with the Safety Act in a market with hundreds of vendors.”
