Moving Target Defense
NexiTech is a thought leader in moving target defense
The static nature of many modern-day computing systems makes them easy to attack and hard to defend. Our adversaries have the time to study a system, identify its vulnerabilities, and then attack at the time and place of their choosing. This gives them an asymmetric advantage, which is unacceptable.
Moving Target Defense (MTD) is the concept of introducing controlled change across multiple system dimensions in order to increase uncertainty and apparent complexity for attackers. This reduces their window of opportunity and increases the costs of their probing and attack efforts, rendering their surveillance obsolete.
NexiTech has developed an innovative MTD solution that provides enhanced security for data-in-flight. With the use of storage virtualization, a type of software-defined storage that we have been pioneering for years, our patent-pending Moving Target Defense for Data Storage Devices has the ability to remove the asymmetric advantage from our adversaries and give it back to the defenders of our nation’s most critical data and weapon systems, where it rightly belongs.
Technical attributes of our MTD solution:
- Uses randomization
- Unpredictable by adversaries
- Gathers metrics and reports breaches
- Dynamic network configuration enabled by virtualization
- Available in a variety of hardware platforms and form factors
NexiTech is advancing the state of the art in the data storage industry by helping to accelerate the adoption of enhanced cyber security techniques used in conjunction with data storage devices and networks.
