IGI Cybersecurity Receives First Patent for Nodeware® Vulnerability Management Solution

The cybersecurity company has patented the key network scanning components of its Nodeware SaaS Solution 

PITTSFORD, NY / May 18, 2021—IGI Cybersecurity (OTC:IMCI) has received its first patent for its proprietary network assessment systems and methods used in its Nodeware Vulnerability Management solution.

Nodeware was created in 2016 by cybersecurity practitioners as a solution designed to continuously scan networks; identify and fingerprint any network assets; and identify and prioritize known vulnerabilities. Nodeware takes a unique approach to vulnerability management by combining asset inventory to provide vulnerability scans that can be performed during normal business hours when the workforce and their devices are online, no matter where they are working from. Nodeware has been recognized for its efficiency, having minimal to no network impact and an intuitive user interface simple enough for non-security professionals.

“Before creating Nodeware, our cybersecurity consultants and practitioners realized that point in time scans that run after hours were missing key assets and not keeping pace with today’s dynamic networks,” said Brian Drake, Director of Product Development at IGI. “We decided to take a different approach, focusing on continuous scanning without impact to critical systems and networks. By focusing on assets individually, Nodeware adapts to network changes in real time.”

Nodeware’s patented process automates and simplifies a traditionally manual process of vulnerability management and ensures the latest definitions are run at the time of scan. With Nodeware’s intelligent queueing, scanning can take place in the background throughout the workday when most assets are active. Nodeware also selects optimal times to scan always-on assets, meaning network performance is not impacted even with continuous scanning. This unique attribute of Nodeware provides the ability to scan for new devices on a continuous basis, improving the accuracy of the assets found on the network.

“We are incredibly proud of our team and what Nodeware is doing to vastly improve and simplify the process of vulnerability management for the small and mid-sized markets,” said Andrew Hoyen, President and COO. “We are filling a significant market gap through a cost effective, easy to use solution that has been ignored by the larger vendors in this space. Nodeware, and specifically the technology in this patent, is critical to protecting our intellectual property while keeping our clients and partners safe and aware as we see ransomware attacks continue to rise.”

This patent specifically protects Nodeware’s industry-changing technology, including the unique workflow of inventory, fingerprinting, and vulnerability scanning on a continuous basis; the queuing mechanism; and automatic updates of scan definitions.
