RedOwl said joining Forcepoint would accelerate its ability to deliver security capabilities to customers.
RedOwl brings an analytics platform to Forcepoint's human-centric cybersecurity system and will be integrated across the company's portfolio, as well as with customers' existing technologies (e.g., SIEM).
In addition, the combination of RedOwl's UEBA technology, Forcepoint DLP and Forcepoint Insider Threat will provide a solution for understanding and responding to the behaviors and intent of people.
Mounted on a robot manufactured by iRobot that has been successfully deployed in combat situations in Afghanistan and Iraq, REDOWL will help troops eliminate second-guessing a sniper's location, especially in urban settings.
The ADF, which functions as the head of REDOWL, is the product of BioMimetic Systems and professors at BU and based on our biological hearing system.
REDOWL mounted on a robot was tested recently during a field trial at an army rifle range.
Other capabilities of REDOWL include early warning, surveillance, and targeting, making it ideal for night surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
