A New Era is Emerging in Cybersecurity, but Only the Best Algorithms will Survive

From cysecurity.news

The industry identified that basic fingerprinting could not maintain up with the rate of these developments, and the requirement to be everywhere, at all times, pushed the acceptance of AI technology to deal with the scale and complexity of modern business security.

Since then, the AI defence market has become crowded with vendors promising data analytics, looking for “fuzzy matches”: close matches to previously encountered threats, and eventually using machine learning to detect similar attacks. While this is an advancement over basic signatures, using AI in this manner does not hide the fact that it is still reactive. It may be capable of recognizing attacks that are very similar to previous incidents, but it is unable to prevent new attack infrastructure and techniques that the system has never seen before.
