Aryaka partnered up with CyLab, Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU’s) Security and Privacy Institute, to research new threat mitigation techniques and innovate enterprise networking and security solutions. Founded in 2003, CyLab is Carnegie Mellon University’s public/private collaborative computer security and privacy research institute. It is one of the largest cyber security research centers in the United States, with over 100 core and affiliated faculty and 100 graduate students. Aryaka’s collaboration with CyLab will include funding and industry expertise to aid in the research and development of sophisticated security techniques to address today’s most pressing threat issues.

Matt Carter, CEO of Aryaka commented, “We were drawn to CyLab not just because of Carnegie Mellon’s reputation of academic excellence, but because of the holistic reach and breadth of the program. CyLab’s research into AI and ML benefits multiple departments within CMU: humanities, engineering, business, psychology, and  even social sciences. And CMU’s work with government leaders has shaped public policy on security for many years.”

Aryaka is also a sponsor of CyLab’s Future Enterprise Security initiative, which takes a multidisciplinary approach to make complex security solutions accessible to all. Aryaka will use the sponsorship to connect with students, academics, and other key industry partners to make security more accessible and understandable to end-users.

Vyas Sekar, co-director of the Future Enterprise Security initiative commented, “We are thrilled to partner with a company focused on next-generation network connectivity and network security, serving many enterprise customers across many key market verticals.”

Aryaka will provide support at multiple levels throughout the program as a founding sponsor of this initiative. This includes directing research topics based on the most recent challenges and threats our customers are facing, providing industry expertise, data sets for learning and building AI models, feedback on the efficacy of various techniques, and providing students with practical experience through mentorship and internships.

Renuka Nadkarni, chief product officer at Aryaka commented, “Aryaka shares the future of enterprise security vision of CyLab. Together we will develop and innovate security techniques to defend against emerging and immediate risks and democratize it via open source to small and large enterprises. With the acute skills shortage in cybersecurity, most enterprises are faced with tremendous pressure and risk—when strong tools are available to everyone, we’re all more protected.”
