THE SURE PROTECTION AGAINST CURRENT AND NEXT-GENERATION CYBER THREATS
In 2016, over 3.3 billion email addresses, usernames and passwords from more than 1,700 thousand data breaches were leaked on darknets. Once made public, hackers and other parties use these records to bully their way into the ecosystems of organizations to carry out targeted attacks.
As cyber threats grow exponentially, contemporary cybersecurity solutions seem outdated and ineffective. The cosmic bulk of threat data is controlled by large companies and governments, making next-gen solutions that improve protection difficult and expensive. Modern developments in artificial intelligence(AI) centered threat protection are promising but they are almost exclusively installed in large corporate applications, which places the technology out of the reach of the people who are most susceptible to attacks.
Much of our life fulcrums on trust in technology that it is estimated that by 2020, there will be more than 29 billion devices connected to the Internet. With the exponential growth in technology, malicious attacks are similarly on the rise. As our devices continue to become more intelligent and interconnected, they become more vulnerable to attacks since many important details of our lives are stored on these them and related cloud services. Private information, in the wrong hands, can have catastrophic consequences.
Modern solutions are not able to keep up with the cumulative number and intelligence of the threats attacking our systems. The signature-based threat detection systems commonly used nowadays fail to detect new, hitherto unseen threats. From self-driving cars to medical implants to general AI, malwares and intelligent systems will always want to attack the technology to which we entrust our lives.
A NEW APPROACH (HRO Token)
HEROIC.com is utilizing big data, artificial intelligence and the blockchain, combined with a decentralized peer-to-peer threat protection platform, to change cybersecurity and make next-gen solutions freely accessible to everyone. HEROIC.com determination is to empower and incentivise developers and enterprises to create next-gen cybersecurity through the HEROIC.com Ecosystem, which incorporates an open threat intelligence exchange (HEROIC Arc Reactor™), a unified security management platform (HEROIC Guardian™) and a Research and Development platform. The motivation for cooperation within this Ecosystem will be incentivized through the use of HEROIC.com’s cryptocurrency, the HRO (pronounced hero) and the blockchain.
A fixed supply of HRO tokens will be created, as a part of the token sale, with appropriate smart contracts and a blockchain-based ledger which will follow the ERC20 standard and provide a secure method for investors to hold and transfer HROs to other users. With the expectation that the HRO be the new standard that is used throughout the entire cybersecurity ecosystem and other industries, HEROIC.com is developing the initial software and smart contracts that powers the Ecosystem.
HEROIC.com is building a healthy market for threat data, powered by the HRO token which can be purchased using Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), popular cryptocurrencies or fiat currency from selected cryptocurrency marketplaces. Participants will each be provided with a protected wallet with which they can manage their tokens. Holders may use their tokens for the procurement of existing and future services directly from HEROIC.com or other partners of the Ecosystem.
The platform has been designed to provide multiple levels of access, significance and sustenance in order to inspire accelerated research, growth and incorporation of forward-thinking cybersecurity technologies and ensure the availability of these technologies. Incentives are managed through the use of the HRO tokens, allowing both purchases and payments between any combination of HEROIC.com participants, including end-users, developers, and organizations.
A user development fund will be executed to incentivize users to partake in the various aspects of the Ecosystem. HEROIC.com will incentivize and help facilitate the expansion of additional cybersecurity-related services that can be exchanged for HRO tokens.
