Like so many developments before it, the virtually all-encompassing digital networking of industrial production processes is both a blessing and a curse. Appropriate solutions are required at the right point to prevent malevolent forces such as industrial espionage and data theft from ultimately prevailing. Headquartered in Munich and with branches in both Pleasanton in the United States and Sydney in Australia, DriveLock SE has been one of the good guys for over 15 years. An internationally leading specialist in IT and data security, DriveLock has made a name for itself worldwide - above all with its Endpoint Protection Platform. At HANNOVER MESSE 2018, the Bavarian security experts are highlighting among other things how artificial intelligence can influence the eternal battle between good and evil in the future.

DriveLock Artificial Intelligence is the first Endpoint Protection Platform that faces up to the increasing complexity of ransomware attacks in the fight against cybercrime by continuously learning as it goes along. With concepts such as the predictive whitelisting method with application control, event assignment, anomaly detection & forensics and file content analysis, the measures used to ward off attacks sound almost as complex as the attacks themselves. Visitors with an interest in this field can obtain more details at the show. But in any event, it's good to know that DriveLock security software is a solution developed exclusively in Germany without any backdoor issues, is subject to tough German data protection directives and protects devices with a multi-layer security concept.
