Ontinue ION IQ

Effective SecOps requires more than knowledge of the threats: it also demands a deep understanding of the environment being protected. Most MSSPs/MDR providers have threat expertise, but don’t understand you . . . until now.

ION IQ makes everybody smarter—your teams, our teams, even other AIs—by building a deep understanding of you, your environment, your people, your operations, and your risks.

SecOps Benefits

Reduce Your Operational Burden with Localized AI

A deep understanding of your environment and operations drives greater accuracy and conviction. Localized AI-powered insights mean less time sorting through things that don’t matter, or hunting down information. ION IQ puts more time back in your day.

Focus on What Matters Most

ION IQ learns and models your operations and centers attention on the threats that pose the greatest risk while simultaneously driving preventative recommendations that make the greatest difference.

Get Localized Answers, Fast

Combining our environmental AI models with the power of Azure OpenAI, ION IQ provides natural language, tailored responses with localized insight securely drawn from your data.

Operate with More Conviction

Don’t waste time second guessing the incidents and alerts you face on a daily basis. You can rest easier knowing that when we surface an alert, it’s real.

How It Works

Intelligence Drawn from Your Environment

ION IQ provides actionable insights because it learns your environment and operations. First, it draws rich data from your environment and factors in the behaviors of both your security team and our Cyber Defenders. Next, these Contextual Sources inform and enable ION IQ’s abilities as they’re ingested into the Data Mesh infrastructure where the data is processed and curated. Then, the resulting refined information provides the tools for building, sequencing, and using AI Models. ION IQ uses a combination of our own proprietary AI models as well as third-party AI models such as Azure OpenAI, which are then applied to two categories of AI Skills.

Throughout the process, the security and integrity of the data is paramount. Customer data never flows into any third-party model; it remains safely within Ontinue.

Data Science Team

AI Generated by Years of Experience

Ontinue’s dedicated Data Science team comprises PhD data scientists and software and automation engineers, with many combined decades of experience in researching and building AI and machine learning models. Over the last several years, this team has added robust machine learning techniques to our service. We’ve trained AI models to continuously optimize processes and seek opportunities for automation and efficiency gains in our MXDR service.

ION was built on this foundation. And it’s how we’re now able to offer true AI capabilities to our customers with ION IQ.
