When it comes to advancements in cybersecurity, rule-based systems are holding the industry back. Relying on humans to constantly input and label rules in order to detect and stay ahead of threats is a bottleneck process that is setting security teams up for failure, especially with tools like SIEM, NDR, and NTA.
The predictive AI field of machine learning collects, analyzes, and tests data to predict future possibilities. AI’s neurological network is patterned on the human brain. But AI works on a scale that goes far beyond what is humanly possible. The top uses for predictive AI technologies to protect sensitive data and systems are in network detection and response (NDR), threat detection, and cybercrime prevention.
The very nature of data is its infinite capacity for growth. For security teams at large, highly integrated and complex enterprises like financial services institutions, that growth can quickly become unwieldy when the approach is to store, normalize and prepare all of this data in order to extract value.
MixMode creates a generative baseline. Unlike the historically-based baselines provided by add-on NTA solutions, a generative baseline is predictive, real-time, and accurate. MixMode provides anomaly detection and behavioral analytics and the ability to suppress false positives and surface true positives.
Since we determine everything on data here at MixMode, we went into our website data to see which of our Q2 articles got the most traffic over the past few months. Not surprisingly, the majority of our top articles covered topics on the advancement of AI in cybersecurity and network traffic analysis (NTA).
Real unsupervised AI spots security issues sooner and predicts future behavior more accurately than older first- and second-wave solutions. Self-supervised AI technology draws on an understanding of the fundamental nature of the network where it lives, an understanding that isn’t possible with supervised-AI.
Yann LeCun and Yoshua Bengio were recently interviewed by VentureBeat Magazine on the topics of self-supervised learning and human-level intelligence for AI. Our CTO Dr. Igor Mezic sat down with our team to discuss some of the most interesting pieces of the LeCun article, and offer a potential solution to a search for truly self-supervised …
The following is an excerpt from our recently published whitepaper, “Self-Supervised Learning – AI for Complex Network Security.” The author, Dr. Peter Stephenson, is a cybersecurity and digital forensics expert having practiced in the security, forensics and digital investigation fields for over 55 years. Section 4 – Why Training Matters – And How The Adversary …
Deep learning makes decisions based upon the data it sees and the data that it doesn’t see but infers from what it does see. This became useful in the AV industry when the adversary introduced polymorphic viruses. These are viruses that change their appearance on the fly and not always in the same way.
