Santa Clara, CA. (PRUnderground) February 9th, 2016

Barrier1®, the integrated cyber security firm based in Minneapolis, is proud to be selected as a member of the on-site team for the Super Bowl 50, providing threat assessment, real-time protection and cyberattack expertise for threats most football fans will never see at the most technologically advanced stadium ever to host the game.

Led by the FBI’s San Francisco Division and several federal agencies, and teams from Norwich University’s computer security program and the Northern California Regional Intelligence Center, Barrier1 experts will help identify hackers and cyberattacks for everything from stealing personal information to controlling Wi-Fi and internet access, to all the computer systems that keep the game and its production on schedule.

Apart from other companies providing security threat products, Barrier1 brings its patented ability to analyze traffic on all seven OSI layers to identify the known and unknown threats, and fends off probes and potential attacks at the point of impact, all in real-time.

“We were brought in because of our accuracy in discovering never-before-seen cyber threats ahead of others”, said James Libersky, President of The Barrier Group. “By incorporating Barrier1 patented real-time Intelligent Threat Management® (ITM), we are able to not only identify and stop all forms of cyberattacks in real-time, but also learn from them so we are ready for the variants that will follow.”

In addition to Mr. Libersky’s expertise, other members of the Barrier1 team include Robert Demopoulos, Senior Vice President of technology and inventor of the patented Real-time ITM technology.

“Our state-of-the-art technology is well ahead of the rest of the industry, and continues to demonstrate its accuracy in finding the threats other have missed,” says Demopoulos. “Because of its effectiveness we consistently disable serious threats and minimize breaches for those we work with ensuring their security profile is always immediately current and protecting the network environment.”

Members of the Barrier1 team will remain on-site throughout the Super Bowl 50 and help ensure the game and all those attending will remain cyber safe and the fan experience for the event exceeds expectations.
