NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Uplevel Security, an adaptive system of intelligence for security operations, will present at Morgan Stanley’s 18th Annual CTO Innovation Summit in Palo Alto, Calif. Every summer, Morgan Stanley’s technologists meet with cutting-edge firms and industry leaders to explore emerging trends and new products. Uplevel was selected out of hundreds of nominees to participate in this exclusive event. The presentation by founder and CEO Liz Maida will outline the company’s vision, market opportunity and patent-pending graph intelligence technology.
The process-driven approach to incident response has led security teams to use static rules to prioritize, investigate, and remediate threats. But, static rules can’t keep up with today’s dynamic security threats. Security teams are still overwhelmed with alerts and constantly concerned they are spending too much time focusing on the wrong ones and overlooking high-severity threats. Uplevel uses historical data, graph intelligence and machine learning to dynamically inform the handling of security threats. Teams can be confident they are focusing on the most critical alerts, resolve highest priority incidents faster and more effectively, and track patterns that can predict how attacks may manifest in the future.
Uplevel’s key differentiator is its ability to preserve the institutional knowledge regarding past attacks. The company is uniquely positioned to capture this historical context due to its graph creation and analysis algorithms. The graph provides the foundation upon which to overlay analysis techniques to extract deeper insights from current information and predict the likelihood that certain activity is malicious.
Earlier this year, Uplevel announced Work-Bench as a new investor, joining Aspect Ventures, First Round Capital, and Fitz Gate Ventures in a $2.5 million investment to kick off 2018. Uplevel has used this funding to heavily invest in product development and customer success, with the biggest priority being to make it easy for customers to adopt, use and engage with the Uplevel platform.
