INDIANAPOLIS--SPECIAL TO CEDIA EXPO 2021, Indiana Convention Center----(BUSINESS WIRE)--The first trade show appearance for Guard Dog Solutions, Inc., dba guardDog.ai, an emerging leader in cyber security protection for consumers and businesses, has resulted in Best of Show acknowledgment as the 2021 Grand Prize winner of CEDIA Expo’s TechStarter Five.
CEDIA Expo 2021, running September 1-3 at the Indiana Convention Center, has welcomed the return of the TechStarter Five program, which gives Launchpad (formerly known as Innovation Alley) exhibitors the opportunity to pitch their business models to VIP industry judges in a “Shark Tank” style competition.
At the event, the VIP Judges canvass the Launchpad exhibitors to identify new brands with strong and unique business models and an inspired vision for their product or service. From these candidates, they select the five brands they believe are the strongest contenders for industry impact and long-term success.
Additionally, the judges identify a grand prize winner within the TechStarter Five. The winner receives a prize package of $5,000 in benefits to propel the company forward and feedback from the industry judges on the ways they can optimize their business for widespread success.
“What an amazing opportunity it has been to see our company on the front page of the Expo’s magazine, to see the energy and excitement around our offering, and to be selected as the Grand Prize Winner of the TechStarter Five,” said Kelly Ryan, EVP of Business Development for guardDog.AI. “I give credit to our amazing team for this win – but I am also hugely gratified for the impact our product and technology are making in the battle to protect every consumer and every business in the growing war against cyberattacks. guardDog.ai’s protection is unique and scalable and is a technology that can make a critical difference for all.”
guardDog.ai uses AI-driven network overlay technology to find and protect attempted cyberattacks in less than two milliseconds by identifying the threats device and network management solutions can’t see and proactively halting potential exploits before they begin.
In wired and Wi-Fi networks, guardDog protects users from the threats in the edge territory that lies outside the perimeter of the network or on attached devices that other solutions can’t see, including the myriad of IoT devices such as digital doorbells, smart refrigerators, and game systems that are inherently vulnerable to the networks they join.
guardDog.ai uses patent-pending artificial intelligence to pre-emptively recognize, expose, and shut down cybersecurity threats before an attack can happen. The company uses the Fido “plug and protect” network overlay device to access guardDog.ai Protective Cloud Services (PCS). PCS combats threats with Autonomous Incident Response (AiR) technology, using artificial intelligence to detect cyber threats and instantly shuts attacks down before they compromise privacy and security. The service protects its users against the latest threats that arise in the form of ransomware, man-in-the-middle attacks, denial of service, and emerging novel threats, to protect networks and the devices attached to them.
Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, guardDog.ai has developed a cloud-based Autonomous Incident Response (AiR) cyber security software service with a companion device that work together to simplify network security. The solution provides protection and visibility as it exposes invisible threats on networks and the devices attached to them, with patented technology to address and prevent cybersecurity threats before they compromise network environments. Every business, government, healthcare institution, home consumer, or other organization, are grappling to find security solutions that are adapting to this changing world. guardDog.ai is pioneering new innovations designed to meet these challenges.
