Innovative NXM autonomous security technology protects space infrastructure and IoT devices from cyber attacks

Next-generation zero-trust cybersecurity software eliminates network-wide device attacks and defends against critical IoT vulnerabilities

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California., June 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — NXM Labs, Inc., a leader in advanced cybersecurity software for connected devices, today introduced its NXM Autonomous Security™ platform that prevents hackers from gaining unauthorized access to commercial, industrial Internet of Things (IoT) , medical or consumer. ) devices. Tested in collaboration with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California Institute of Technology (Caltech), NXM successfully demonstrated the ability of its innovative technology to enable future Mars rovers to automatically defend and recover from cyber attacks. Caltech manages JPL on behalf of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

NXM engineers worked with JPL’s Artificial Intelligence, Analytics and Innovation Division, Information Technology and Solutions Directorate (ITSD), along with the Robotic Surface Mobility Group in Pasadena, Calif. to integrate the company’s software with the navigation and ground control systems of JPL’s Athena autonomous test vehicle. During testing, NXM software successfully detected unauthorized attempts to gain access to the rover’s autonomous navigation systems, automatically protecting the vehicle from damage in real time without affecting normal driving operations.

Testing showed that NXM’s platform was capable of securing millions of devices with virtually no impact on network latency and can operate up to 1,000 times faster than other decentralized platforms previously tested by the US Department of Defense under conditions simulated battlefield.

“NXM technology is changing the rules of the game,” said Lt. Gen. Harry D. Raduege, Jr., USAF (retired), former Director of the Defense Information Systems Agency and CIO of the North American Aerospace Defense Command and US Space Command “NXM provides a new layer of cybersecurity that enables a command and unified control as well as data interoperability, providing an unprecedented capability that we have long sought but not possible until now.” Lieutenant General Raduege serves as an advisor to NXM.

The Athena test rover was developed by JPL as part of NASA’s High Performance Spaceflight Computing (HPSC) program to develop new computing technologies with capabilities far beyond current spaceflight computers. JPL engineers harnessed the rover’s advanced computing power out of the box NVIDIA Supersonic Edge AI Platform to develop innovative machine learning-based applications for future Mars rovers. This includes artificial intelligence software that identifies objects of scientific interest as a vehicle traverses the Martian terrain, using vision-based navigation and route planning software to significantly increase driving distances for energy-limited rovers.

“We are delighted to have collaborated with NASA JPL to show how our security can protect critical assets in space as well as here on Earth,” he said. scott rankin, president and co-founder of NXM. “Our unique zero-touch, zero-trust security software is chip and cloud agnostic, enabling device manufacturers and their component suppliers to easily and cost-effectively develop the industry’s most trusted products that can be deploy quickly and remain secure throughout their operational life.”
