Computer viruses and malware have long been a recurring problem in the IT industry.
For as long as computers and the Internet exist, viruses that spread to cause damage for personal gain and even for the joy of it sometimes cause billions in dollars of damages to affected individuals.
At the same time, the steps taken to stop viruses have also led to a booming growth in the multi-billion dollar cybersecurity industry. This is of course, due to the hundreds of antivirus services, malware protection suites, and other software available to users on the market.
Despite the emergence of many antivirus tools, the problems associated with malware and hacking only seem to become worse. Cyber attacks have overcome the technology of current security measures by adapting to changes extremely quick, just like a real virus.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel, however. The rising popularity of the blockchain and P2P networks this year shows there is a way to deal with cybersecurity and malware attacks that seem so stubborn to current practices.
With that being said, the biggest problem right now is the amount of time it takes for firms to develop a solution to cyber attacks.
Identifying threats are becoming harder and harder every day and by the time the knowledge or fix is distributed to the public, many other viruses would have popped up in the period between the discovery and the fix.
As a distributed system, LevelNet enables participants to share data about threats globally instantly which allows the entire system to become much smarter and faster than today’s cybersecurity measures.
The reason why this happens is that antivirus solutions are currently distributed among many independent products and suppliers. An analogy can be made with the human immune system; current antivirus measures are like each organ in the body having its own antivirus system.
LevelNet, however, integrates these products into a single, more efficient immune system which removes the boundaries and limits of having only one anti-virus product–taking protection to a whole new level.
LevelNet is led by a team of strong and highly experienced individuals including CEO and founder Pavel Shkliaev and CTO, Alex Bodiagin, both respected individuals in the scene.
LevelNet is based in Irvine, California and is already in business since 2016 which means the idea of LevelNet is proven and in demand.
As mentioned earlier, the LevelNet platform can integrate with any current cyber protection solutions for enhanced protection, hence allowing users to rapidly detect time-sensitive cyber threats for as long as they’re users of LevelNet.
There are main features in the LevelNet platform:
- An annual subscription to LevelNet for each device which ranges from $0.99 to $9.99
- The LevelNet Network & End-Point App. A feature that integrates users into a single universal cybersecurity network where users can exchange data about current threats on their devices in real time, hence making the LevelNet platform smarter every single second
- The LevelNet Cloud. The Cloud is a database of incidents in the platform which is updated in real-time as well as forming a reputation service for files and other
In case you haven’t noticed, all of these features allow LevelNet to defend against threats even when there are no antivirus measures in a system; the network defends against threats even if you don’t have any antivirus software on your PC, phone, or laptop!
How does this work?
Each user in the LevelNet network exchange information about security incidents and threats detected on their device with other users instantly when it happens. As the network receives the update, LevelNet will automatically learn to offer better protection to users.
Because of this, users no longer need to approach security measures separately or individually as they do not provide enough protection. With LevelNet, all of the necessary countermeasures you need are united under one app for your convenience and security.
LevelNet poses several advantages not found in other antivirus software:
- LevelNet users enjoy the benefit of blocking viruses, security threats, and hacks in real-time
- LevelNet works with existing antivirus software to enhance your protection so there’s no need for a complete revamp of your system
- Even if a threat is detected only in a single user’s system, the entire antivirus network updates almost instantly to safeguard other users
- Users exchange information with each other which allows for real-time threat detection and protection for everyone
- Your private and sensitive data is protected securely by the LevelNet blockchain
The LevelNet token sale will include two type of ERC-20 compliant tokens: LVL tokens and LVLS tokens.
LVL tokens are required for access to LevelNet’s features; token holders will have a membership status that provides access to the platform’s full suite of services and software.
On the other hand, LVLS token holders have a more active role compared to LVL token holders.
The LVLS token is a financial instrument that offers token holders access to the fund’s profits and register of fund shareholders, the opportunity to nominate a representative to the Board of Directors, as well as the right to call board meetings.
LVL token holders can exchange their LVL tokens for LVLS tokens once they pass a KYC/AML procedure to safeguard the ecosystem of the network.
