VenuesWest adds Hyprfire’s Firebug to its Cyber Security Defences


VenuesWest has signed on Hyprfire’s Firebug next generation network security solution.
Hyprfire’s Firebug cyber security software solution is designed to defend against ransomware and other cyber-attacks on corporate networks. Firebug provides organisations with an “early warning system” on their internal computer networks and alerts to vulnerabilities and unauthorised activities before a ransom or other cyberattack happens. It provides a new level of protection for critical infrastructure providers.

Firebug is based on Hyprfire’s revolutionary Power AI platform, which uses powerful statistical techniques to distinguish malicious network traffic from normal traffic. The Power AI technology was originally developed at Curtin University, by Hyprfire’s Chief Technology Officer, Stefan Prandl, and the Curtin research team.

HyprFire’s Managing Director, Tim Jones, said “HyprFire’s Firebug is the new and better way of doing network security detection and response, and makes previous generation solutions look old, inaccurate and expensive. For the first time, Firebug provides organisations with an effective and affordable network security solution. Firebug fits nicely into common security stacks. We really believe that Firebug can help stop cyber attackers causing damage to governments and businesses.”

VenuesWest’s Chief Information Officer, Ian Millar, said “In today’s security environment organisations need to have better network visibility in order to find unknown threats. It’s no longer enough only to have perimeter and endpoint security systems. We’re excited about the ability to be able to find and hunt down unauthorised and malicious activity on our networks. Firebug has been successful in detecting activity unlike that of other solutions on the market. It’s great that this solution is being provided by a Western Australian group.”

Hyprfire has partnered with ES2 to deploy and manage Firebug in the VenuesWest network. ES2’s Managing Director, Frederic Drouin, said “The ES2 team is very excited about Firebug, because it addresses a major gap in cyber defences. We truly believe this is the missing link between perimeter and endpoint security solutions.”
