Industry expertise and prescriptive analytics
NPD Analytics Ltd is based in Athlone, Co. Westmeath, with offices in 27 cities across the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. The company offers data, industry expertise, and prescriptive analytics to help grow businesses in a changing world.
Innovation Partnership Project
In the first Nethealth Project (Innovation Partnership Project between COMAND TG & NPD) a full Risk Visualization of the NPD Network was produced.
AIT and NPD developed a proprietary tool which leverages Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence to analyze security anomalies, in real time.
Nethealth in production was developed for NPD and demonstrated live Network data
- 60 Million Netflows (internet connections) captured daily
- 15 Security ‘events of interest’ Identified & reviewed daily
- 700 IT Security related Incidents raised in 2019
- 70 Million Application and service log events collected daily
Nethealth was developed from scratch leveraging the Innovation Partnership Model with COMAND Technology Gateway. It is a unique innovation which has been successfully deployed in production, enhancing NPD’s global security posture by preventing costly intrusion events.

The NPD Data Analytics & COMAND Technology Gateway partnership
A non-rules based approach to anomaly detection, leveraging the proven success of the NetHealth project. Enables ‘item level’ anomaly detection.
- Analyzes all elements of each data set it is applied to
- Anomaly detection based on previously observed behaviour
- All variances monitored in all files
- Low maintenance – no need to add/remove checks
- Analysis runs as close to data receipt as possible, giving the maximum amount of time for investigation and remediation of an issue before data release
The current Nethealth #2 Project is the second Innovation Partnership project and develops Machine Learning (ML) for Risk assessment.
Innovation Partnership 2 evolves Nethealth to ‘Pandora’ where Incoming Retailer Data allows feeds of QC Pre-Emptive Anomaly Detection for Outlet and Retailer Data.
“Pandora” for Retailers data deploys proprietary analytical algorithms, developed for network traffic anomaly detection, to retailer feeds with both “Nethealth” & “Pandora” machine learning anomaly detection & visualization feeds.

The Technology Gateway Network delivers innovation expertise to industry across Ireland. It is run by Enterprise Ireland in partnership with the Institutes of Technology.
