Polyswarm is world’s first decentralized threat intelligence market backed by blockchain technology and Ethereum smart contracts. Polyswarm incentivizes accelerated innovation in the $8.5 billion/year anti-virus and automated cyber threat intelligence industry with economic incentives that reward accurate and prompt threat intelligence regarding URLs, network traffic and malintent of files. The platform offers a real-time threat identification ecosystem consisting of consumers, vendors, enterprises and geographically scattered security experts. Experts develop and improvise competing micro-engines that independently investigate the latest risks and threats to beat their competition. The platform already has its ICO underway, raising over $23.64 Million so far. Polyswarm is presently offering a 15% discount on the tokens, which is set to end in 15 days.
The Market & Its Challenges
In today’s $8.5 billion anti-virus market, around 70 percent of threats go undetected, resulting in cybercrimes and damages that are anticipated to reach $6 trillion by 2021. The anti-virus market is faced with monopoly, with few big names dominating the market, and duplication of cost. Today’s market has an irrelevant ability to detect esoteric threats and doesn’t recognize and embrace interoperability. It implies that no two antivirus software can be used at a time. Gartner anticipates cyber security cost to be doubled by 2021, with IT security jobs going unfulfilled.
