In a new paradigm of security, Intel has developed security software that monitors and adjusts to the way an individual uses the Internet, providing a new dynamic approach to detecting attacks and malicious activity that helps reduce false positives or missing some security breaches. The software is aimed at corporations that distribute laptops and mobile devices to employees, since IT departments typically install the same one-size-fits-all security software on all their hardware which is not very effecient.

Implications - The Proteus project has researchers developing several algorithms that can monitor a person's Internet use and create personalized traffic thresholds based on the gathered information.
