Cybersecurity Glossary

To implement effective cybersecurity solutions built for the digital world, it’s important to understand common industry concepts and definitions. This glossary provides you with cybersecurity terms to be aware of as you look to protect your organization against cyber threats.

Natural Language Processing

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a field of computer science that uses Machine Learning to teach computers to process and understand human language. Natural Language Processing analyzes text and is used in cybersecurity to detect threats. NLP algorithms can identify the urgent language used in social engineering attempts, as well as the flag words and phrasing typically used in spear-phishing attacks, also known as business email compromise (BEC).

Network Vector Rendering (NVR)

Network vector rendering (NVR) is a type of remote browser isolation (RBI) that leverages Skia, the graphics library that works across many browsers, hardware, and software platforms. Unlike pixel pushing or DOM reconstruction, NVR streams Skia commands—rather than website code—to the user’s local device. While less costly than some pixel pushing solutions, NVR leaves the risk of exposure to cyberthreats as it uses partial web isolation.
