Custodio Technologies, a Singapore-based cyber subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) ELTA, has won a project under Singapore’s national cybersecurity R&D programme, the Israeli company announced on 23 April.
Custodio will work alongside the Singapore Institute of Technology and the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) in a two-year project designated Smart Learning Analytics for Digital Crime (SLADE), which aims to research, design, develop and deploy a smart platform for the analysis, learning and investigation of digital crimes, helping investigators overcome the challenges of modern cybercrime investigation and digital evidence analysis.
The project will leverage Custodio’s locally-developed next-generation cyber analysis platform – CyVestiGO. Commercially available and operationally deployed, CyVestiGO assists cyber operators and analysts to reduce the time and effort required to investigate cyber-security incidents and identify the DNA of advanced persistent threats (APT). While successfully helping the commercial world tackle its increasing cyber-security challenges, CyVestiGo is also an integral part of IAI’s global offering of national-level cyber-security solutions and centres, deployed in IAI's projects around the world.
Director of R&D at Custodio, Alvin Cheng, stated “Our goal is to help law enforcement agencies around the word to effectively combat cybercrime and successfully prosecute those who choose to use technology against us and our communities.”
