About our engine

Inspired By Human Medicine

inlyse has developed a new and innovative method for detecting malware. It is the result of years of extensive research on state-of-the-art technologies in the areas of IT-Security and Data Science. For this we have been inspired by methods that are also used in human medicine. The development of self-learning algorithms is well advanced everywhere where the analysis of images is concerned, be it x-rays, photos or video sequences. Deep learning systems are successfully used in radiology, ophthalmology and dermatology, among others. Deep neural networks are used to reliably detect lung diseases in computer tomography, breast cancer cells in histological sectional images or diabetic retinal changes, for example. It is precisely this procedure that we make use of. For this purpose we convert files into graphical representations, analyse them holistically, and recognize from these images if there is something in them that should not be there.

inlyse Core Technology

Better said than done. Our methodology required us to solve a multitude of difficult problems to convert any different file of a type, with respect to its individual attributes like its size, into expressive image representations, that can be classified using deep neural networks and our machine learning stack. For this purpose we’ve developed a universal preprocessing pipeline that disassembles any input data into its type specific segments, and encodes the containing correlating data structures in the best possible way to an expressive graphical representation of the specific segment. The combination of the different generated representations, provides us a holistic and expressive graphical projection of the input data that can be classified.

About Mail Security


General Description

Over 95% of all cyber attacks begin with an email to an unexpected victim. (Reference: SANS) Sometimes it seems easy to blame users for falling victim to phishing attacks, but campaigns are becoming increasingly sophisticated. It's often difficult to distinguish a malicious email from a regular one because attackers will tailor attacks to look as if they come from a trusted source, such as cloud service providers like Microsoft or Google, colleagues, or even the boss. Scanning incoming emails against known and unknown malicious content is essentially required to protect your company from becoming compromised. At this critical endpoint it is very meaningful to not rely on a single instance of security but to integrate several layers of security software.

No need to replace an existing solution

The inlyse Plugins are designed to integrate seamless into any kind of email infrastructure and work complementary to any other security solution.

Scan Emails where it makes sense for your business

We scan incoming emails exactly where you want to scan them no matter if its onside the Client Endpoint via our Outlook Plugins, onside the email Server (MS Exchange, Office365) or E-Mail Gateways like SMTP Proxies.

Define actions

No matter where you integrate our plugins, we provide a central administration dashboard where you can manage and monitor your Plugin endpoints or define global actions and rules which fits your specific needs

About Application Security


General Description

Modern technology is crucial to organisations, but at the same time, it also brings with IT security concerns. To add to this, the concept of a 'workplace' is no longer restricted to a cubicle, with employees working remotely occupying a significant part of the workforce. On the one hand, these factors are boosting productivity, but on the other, the question is how to ensure data security.

With our Plugins you can strike a balance between productivity and security. Our modular system architecture allows us to rapidly develop plugins for new tools to support you further boosting the productivity of your company.
