An intriguing exhibitor at ISDEF 2019 is Rishon Lezion-based Cyber 2.0, founded by the current Chief Technology Officer, Erez Kaplan, in 2015.
With some 120 customers, mostly in Israel but with a steadily growing international clientele, the company provides what it claims to be unhackable cyber defence solutions. One high profile domestic user is the Jerusalem Post, which last year embedded the company’s solutions in a ‘top to bottom’ defence solution. The first two of several patents the company has applied for were approved last year.
The cyber world is based on biological models (hence the derivation of the terms ‘virus’ and ‘anti-virus’), which are inherently vulnerable to attacks from systems using a similar structural basis. The ‘secret sauce’ of the Cyber 2.0 approach is to use mathematically-based chaos models, such as its forthcoming Chaos SSL, to defeat traditional and emerging attack models.
The company’s immediate future (through the end of this year) would appear to be devoted to perfecting solutions for the automotive industry and finalising the Chaos SSL solution. After exposure in the fertile soil of ISDEF, however, who knows what direction development might take thereafter?
