SAN FRANCISCO (February 14, 2017) – ProtectWise™, the enterprise security company that delivers pervasive visibility, automated threat detection and unlimited forensic exploration, today introduced Immersive SecuritySM — the next step in the evolution of security innovation. Building on its disruptive enterprise security platform, The ProtectWise Grid™, the company is evolving the security presentation layer made possible by the convergence of high-performance gaming engines, machine learning, virtual reality devices and its own advanced data set. ProtectWise also announced an early access program to this advanced user interface, called The Immersive GridSM, for which customers can sign up at www.immersivesecurity.com.

“The Immersive Grid presents a disruptive new way forward for our industry,” said Scott Chasin, co-founder and CEO of ProtectWise. “Immersive Security radically changes how security teams interact with petabytes of data across traditional enterprise, cloud and industrial control system environments. With this approach, analysts can become infinitely more effective at responding to incidents and detecting anomalies; and enterprises can bridge the talent gap by tapping into a new generation of analysts for whom sensory rich, immersive and virtual environments are second nature.”

Immersive Security generates a more capable, efficient and proactive analytical response to incidents by enabling threat analysts to visualize data in new ways through transforming their network into a virtual cityscape. Built on technologies familiar to the next generation of talent, The Immersive Grid is a powerful asset for overcoming the industry’s job gap and moving beyond the traditional tools that are insufficient in today’s complex threat landscape.

ProtectWise introduced The Immersive Grid as a proof of concept at RSA Conference 2017 and expects to release it into the market by the end of 2017. Learn more or take part in the early access program at www.immersivesecurity.com.
