AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CB Insights today named JASK, the provider of the industry’s first Autonomous Security Operations Center (ASOC) platform, to the third annual AI 100 ranking, showcasing the 100 most promising private artificial intelligence companies in the world.
Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights research team selected the AI 100 from over 3,000 companies based on several factors including patent activity, investor quality, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, partnerships, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies to help predict a company’s momentum.
“It is a true honor to be named to the AI 100 by CB Insights and be positioned with other companies that are challenging the status quo by leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning in their respective fields,” said Greg Martin, co-founder and CEO of JASK. “Our core mission at JASK is to give security analysts the automation needed to more effectively protect enterprise assets, and this recognition is further validation that we are executing on that mission.”
The JASK ASOC platform is an AI and machine learning-based SIEM technology. The cloud-native platform is designed to streamline security analyst workflows by automating many of the repetitive tasks that restrict productivity, freeing them for higher-value roles like threat hunting and vulnerability management, while addressing the escalating talent shortage.
The ASOC platform is powered by JASK’s Adaptive Signal Clustering, an AI-based engine that uses a machine learning approach and mimics the SOC analyst. The engine normalizes all attack data, alerts and anomalies into Signals, clusters them together into JASK InsightsTM and applies pattern matching for known threats and identifies threats they’ve never seen before. The JASK platform maintains a closed loop, keeping an analyst involved in the process all the time, allowing them to label and rank alerts and signals, as well as upvote or downvote their validity. In effect, SOC analysts crowdsource the training of the model, which allows the engine itself to become more intelligent over time.
“After being named to the AI 100 in 2018, last year’s honorees raised nearly $4.5B across 45 deals with 6 going on to be valued at $1 billion or more,” said Anand Sanwal, CEO of CB Insights. “The data we compiled on this year's nominees, ranging from their customers to their patents to their CB Insights' Mosaic scores, revealed 100 AI companies that are driving transformation across a number of industries and which are taking on a variety of large societal issues ranging from disaster management to cancer diagnosis to detecting fake news. We expect these companies will see similar levels of momentum and progress in 2019 and are excited to continue to track their progress.”
The AI 100 honor adds to JASK’s significant momentum over the past year. Recently, the company announced its new Momentum Global Partner Program to propel the JASK ASOC into the broader market.
In 2018, the company was recognized as a prestigious CNBC Upstart 100 award winner, announced the appointment of industry veteran Jessica Couto as its new channel chief, launched its Special Ops threat hunting service, and closed a $25 million Series B funding round.
JASK is modernizing security operations by delivering an advanced SIEM platform that provides better visibility, better automation and a better architecture. Built on cloud-native technologies, the JASK ASOC platform streamlines security analyst workflows by automating many of the repetitive tasks that restrict productivity, freeing them for higher-value roles like threat hunting and vulnerability management, while addressing the escalating talent shortage. www.jask.com
