NVIDIA has announced the release of its Morpheus framework that uses AI to detect and prevent security threats.
It can detect leaks of unencrypted sensitive data, phishing attacks, and malware. According to NVIDIA, the Morpheus framework can be used together with NVIDIA AI computing and NVIDIA BlueField-3 DPUs to provide end-to-end protection.
When used along with BlueField DPUs, it enables every compute node in a network to be used as a security sensor. This enables organizations to analyze every packet in the network without data replication. According to NVIDIA, traditional security tools only sample around five percent of network traffic data, which can lead to algorithms based on incomplete models.
Morpheus is optimized for running on NVIDIA-certified systems from manufacturers such as Atos, Dell, GIGABYTE, H3C, HPE, Inspur, Lenovo, QCT, and Supermicro.
“Zero-trust security models demand we monitor every transaction in the data center in real time. This poses a significant technical challenge – needing to sense intrusion within the server, detecting threats immediately, and operating at the data rate of modern data centers,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “NVIDIA Morpheus combines Mellanox in-server networking and NVIDIA AI to do real-time, all-packet inspection to anticipate threats and eliminate them as they arise.”
