HEROIC.com Launches $41 Million ICO to Power Personal Cybersecurity Using AI and the Blockchain

HEROIC.com today launched the pre-sale of its HEROIC token to create the future of intelligent cybersecurity using blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI). The HEROIC.com ecosystem will provide a universal solution to protect against current and future cyber-attacks.

The HEROIC.com software not only intelligently protects against threats but also empowers and incentivizes users to help build the next generation of cybersecurity solutions through seamless contribution of anonymized threat data—the key component needed to fuel the advancement of threat detection and prevention with artificial intelligence and machine learning.

As cyber threats continue to grow in both frequency and sophistication, HEROIC.com will provide enterprise-level technology to individual users. Anyone who joins the network can both receive advanced threat protection and be compensated for their participation in the ecosystem.

“Our mission is to protect the world’s information—of all individuals—not just the biggest businesses,” said Chad Bennett, founder and CEO of HEROIC.com. “The reactive, centralized model of cybersecurity is completely outdated. The future of cybersecurity is decentralized and democratized—utilizing AI and the blockchain, which are better models to uncover threats and create the best possible solutions.”

The HEROIC.com ecosystem consists of the following components:

  • HEROIC Guardian™— a cloud-based, unified threat management system that utilizes threat data from Arc Reactor and combines it with artificial intelligence to predict and prevent cyber-attacks. It’s simple, online interface helps individual users, families and businesses manage all pieces of the cybersecurity puzzle. More than 1,000 paying customers are already using Guardian.
  • HEROIC Arc Reactor™— a decentralized cyber threat intelligence exchange powered by the blockchain. Arc Reactor collects, transforms and distributes threat data through an open, blockchain based marketplace.
  • Research and Development Environment— an environment for developers and organizations to visually and programmatically interact with Arc Reactor’s threat data and incentivize AI-powered cyber solutions.

“An early version of Guardian—HEROIC.com’s personal protection solution—is already being used by more than 1,000 paying customers to protect their information and technology,” Bennett said. “The HEROIC.com ecosystem will be openly available to developers and companies alike to build their own intelligent solutions. As more users join the network, the more secure everyone becomes. The combination of big data with artificial intelligence and the blockchain is a completely new paradigm for cyber protection.”

With its universal security solution, HEROIC.com is unveiling the world’s first Universal ICO. No matter a user’s home country, preferred contribution method or economic standard, all users will be able to participate in the ICO through various programs. Contributors may purchase Tokens using Ethereum, Bitcoin, and most popular cryptocurrencies/currencies. Users who own HEROIC Tokens may use them to purchase existing and future services directly from HEROIC.com or other partners of the ecosystem and can also exchange them for other cryptocurrencies and cash.

The HEROIC.com management and advisor team has a solid and strong combination of start-up and traditional management experience along with a group of advisors who are the most experienced in the blockchain industry. Bennett has already led two of his three prior companies to multiple Inc. 500 wins. Advisors to HEROIC.com include, among others, John McClurg, former CISO at Dell and current VP and Ambassador-at-Large at Cylance; David Bradford, former CEO of Fusion-io and executive at Novell; Tricia Schumann, CEO of BachHealth; Jeff Flamm, CEO of Infinite Mind; Ryan Lewis, founder of the BYU Blockchain Summit; and Garrett Gee, founder of Scan.me which was sold to Snapchat.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
As organizations shift towards IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. Commvault can ensure protection, access and E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise. In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Randy De Meno, Chief Technologist - Windows Products and Microsoft Part...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
