TerraEchos is a world leader in advanced security solutions employing streaming data analytics for advanced cyber-physical infrastructure protection. Embedding IBM’s InfoSphere Streams inside our tactical appliance, the Kairos™ Solution processes extreme volumes of variable data at line speeds to run an array of advanced analytics from an aggregated set of continuous and discrete data sources. Kairos provides an interoperable, extensible and scalable high performance compute environment for the most challenging, asymmetric security challenges facing governments and businesses today.
Developed for US Government and high-value civilian targets such as nuclear facilities, the Smart Grid, and mission critical data centers, Kairos is the world's first compute appliance capable of addressing streaming security threats to cyber-physical infrastructure. Our advanced Kairos analytical core combines the blazing processing speed of the Streams compute platform with analytical modules that can analyze and act on data from a wide variety of digital systems and sources (ICS, SCADA, sensors) instantaneously. The result is unmatched situational awareness across spatial and temporal boundaries, providing next-generation security against attacks designed to harm cyber and/or physical infrastructure. For example, a virus intended to overheat a core generator at a nuclear facility or take out communications at a command/control center.
Kairos is a rack mounted compute appliance customized to each client's specific location and needs. It taps directly into the backbone of any IT network — localized or cloud-based — and works like a central nervous system for security. Kairos offers an unparalleled range of benefits for securing cyber-physical infrastructure:
Kairos literally turns huge volumes of highly disparate, streaming data into security insight and enables our clients to act on it, instantly.

Award Winning Innovation:
TerraEchos has been working closely with IBM on the evolution of the InfoSphere Streams computer platform and was the world’s first commercial OEM licensee of the technology in December 2009. TerraEchos embedded the technology into the Adelos® S4 sensor system, and subsequently evolving the capability into the Kairos appliance after extensive work for the US Government. The TerraEchos Adelos S4 solution won the “IBM CTO Innovation Award” at the 2010 IBM Information On Demand (IOD) Conference in Las Vegas and was featured again at the 2011 IBM IOD Conference. In March 2012, the Kairos Solution won a Beacon Award for Innovation in Information Management and was a Beacon Finalist for Government Solution.
"Recipients of the 2012 IBM Beacon Award set the standard for business excellence, innovative solutions, ingenuity, and client transformation," said Mark Hennessy, general manager, IBM Global Business Partners and Midmarket. “We congratulate TerraEchos on winning the Beacon Award for Outstanding Information Management Innovation and demonstrating its ability to provide value by incorporating InfoSphere Streams within their Kairos solution.”
