ProtectedBy.AI has launched a patented technology to keep software supply chains safe from malware attacks.

CodeLock by ProtectedBy.AI provides organizations with a virtually impenetrable network of security sensors to secure server-side applications. From a technical standpoint, CodeLock's algorithm injects custom digital signatures into a company's software at predetermined points or locations. Containers of code are then sealed, signed, and linked together.

This way, CodeLock maximizes protection for each line of code, from small utility functions to multimillion-character operating systems.

"Cyberattacks like the recent events with SolarWinds, Colonial Pipeline, and JBS have devastated thousands of organizations globally – including multiple U.S. government agencies; attacks that would have been stopped in their tracks by CodeLock," said ProtectedBy.AI.

There are two parts to ProtectedBy.AI's CodeLock: an alert monitor and a developer interface.

The‌ ‌developer‌ ‌interface‌ ‌requires‌ ‌programmers‌ ‌to‌ ‌verify their identities via multi-factor authentication, tiered passwords, ‌digital‌ ‌footprinting,‌ ‌and‌ ‌biometrics. The alert monitor, tailored for non-tech executives, serves as an early warning system configured to send emails, texts, and pre-recorded calls to anyone in an organization's chain of command.

A language-agnostic toolkit, CodeLock integrates seamlessly into any software development workflow‌, ‌including‌ ‌agile,‌ scrum, and waterfall. Among the major repositories connected to and accommodated by the platform are Git, GitHub, BitBucket, AWS, and Azure.

"Malware, ransomware, and creative new forms of cyberattacks are becoming more common around the world," said Brian Gallagher, president and co-founder of ProtectedBy.AI. 

"We've developed the only defense technology which automates the process of detecting an attack once it has gotten past your perimeter. CodeLock is being recognized as a critical component to keeping organizations cybersafe."

As of June 2021, CodeLock by ProtectedBy.AI is available as a subscription-based service that starts at $15,000 per year.
