NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Special to ISC East — Guard Dog Solutions, Inc., dba guardDog.ai, an emerging leader in cyber security protection for consumers, businesses, and government, has garnered multiple awards in the 2021 Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards program from AST (American Security Today) Homeland Security and AST Magazine.

“Today’s awards are a humbling acknowledgement of guardDog’s growing role in protecting private information in ‘edge territory’”
In wired and Wi-Fi networks, guardDog.ai protects against threats in edge territory – the locations outside the perimeter of the network or on attached devices that other solutions can’t see – including the many IoT devices that now occupy home, business, and government networks. The software service uses its Autonomous Incident Response (AIR) technology to automatically detect and respond to threats and recognize vulnerabilities that can be addressed before they can be exploited.
The Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program from AST Magazine is specifically designed to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end-users in a variety of government, homeland security, and public safety vertical markets. The preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, the ‘ASTORS’ Awards feature the most cutting-edge and forward-thinking security solutions coming onto the market, to ensure readers have the information they need to keep our Nation safe – one facility, street, and city at a time. Today’s 2021 event was headlined by a keynote address from Admiral TSA David Pekoske.
“Today’s awards are a humbling acknowledgement of guardDog’s growing role in protecting private information in ‘edge territory’,” said guardDog.ai founder and CEO Peter Bookman. “guardDog’s protection spans the myriad connections to the network that the network and its device management programs can’t see, and proactively shuts down suspicious activity before an exploit attempt can occur.
“The awards from AST represent the vast cyber security challenges our institutions are facing and the growing level and importance of technology solutions designed to address them,” he concluded.
guardDog.ai uses patent-pending technology powered by machine learning and AI to pre-emptively recognize, expose, and shut down cybersecurity threats before an attack can happen. The software cloud service works together with a companion network device to protect networks and the devices attached to them by stopping and mitigating ransomware, man-in-the-middle attacks, denial of service, and is constantly learning to engage with emerging novel threats. As organizations face increased risks due to the explosion of cyber-attacks, new regulations and compliance pressures, and the difficulty of finding and retaining cyber security resources, guardDog.ai is developing solutions that can autonomously detect and respond to threats and vulnerabilities.
