NVIDIA and Booz Allen Hamilton have teamed up to offer to public and private sector clients a graphic processing unit-accelerated artificial intelligence cybersecurity platform called NVIDIA Morpheus.
Booz Allen has employed Morpheus to develop Cyber Precog, a GPU-accelerated software platform that supports the deployment of AI models and modular pipelines at the edge and facilitates data ingestion at 300 times the rate of a central processing unit while increasing AI training by 32 times and AI inference by 24 times, NVIDIA said Tuesday.
Morpheus is an AI-based software framework designed to help cybersecurity developers perform network traffic inspection in real time, detect anomalies and offer insights to quickly address cyberthreats.
“NVIDIA GPUs, along with NVIDIA’s Morpheus framework, allow us to bring enterprise capability to the edge, so that the best analytic, data processing and AI capability can be delivered to the mission,” said Matt Tarascio, a senior vice president leading Booz Allen’s analytics and AI business.
Tarascio added that developing Cyber Precog is an example of the company’s efforts to build unique capabilities and field scalable platforms meant to help customers meet their missions and achieve cyber advantage.
