Challenge

Mobile viruses are emerging as a new class of threats. Is it possible to predict how fast a virus is going to spread, and can one design reliable, cost-effective countermeasures?

Approach

Icosystem built an agent-based model of subscriber behavior and interactions and of virus behavior and propagation.

Outcome

Accurate quantitative prediction based on limited data and virus definition. Designed effective interventions to slow virus propagation drastically.
