Use Case: AI-Generated Attack Detection


As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to advance, there is a growing concern about the emergence of AI-generated attacks. Threat actors are harnessing the power of artificial intelligence to develop sophisticated attack techniques that can evade traditional security measures, making them highly elusive and difficult to detect using conventional methods. These AI-generated attacks can potentially cause substantial damage to organizations, compromising sensitive data, disrupting operations, and undermining trust.


MixMode’s patented self-learning AI platform identifies patterns and trends without predefined rules or training, customizing to the specific dynamics of individual networks, rather than relying on more generic machine learning models typically found among competitors.

MixMode AI was designed to identify and mitigate advanced attacks, including adversarial AI. An adversary would need to have a deep understanding of MixMode’s algorithms and processes to evade detection. However, in attempting to learn and replicate MixMode's AI, the adversary's behavior would likely be detected as anomalous by the platform, triggering an alert and preventing any further damage.


Use Case: SIEM Augmentation


Traditional Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions have been the go-to approach for organizations to collect, analyze, and manage security events and logs. However, SIEM solutions often struggle to keep pace with the rapidly evolving threat landscape and the complexity of modern cyber-attacks. They lack advanced threat detection capabilities, leaving organizations vulnerable to sophisticated threats that evade traditional signature-based detection methods. The size and complexity of big data have also made most SIEMs incapable of effectively collecting, analyzing, and correlating data from multiple sources. These limitations hinder timely incident response, increase the risk of undetected breaches, and weaken overall security effectiveness.


The MixMode Platform helps enhance a SIEM’s capabilities by ingesting and analyzing large volumes of data in real-time, automating the threat detection process to drastically reduce false positives and surface relevant threats. This enables analysts to do more with less and save time by focusing on the threats that matter.

The MixMode Platform helps enhance existing investments, maximizing ROI and delivering long-term value. By leveraging AI-driven detection alongside a SIEM, organizations can strengthen their cybersecurity posture, enhance threat detection and response capabilities, and stay ahead of rapidly evolving cyber threats.


Use Case: Ransomware


Ransomware attacks continue to pose a significant threat to organizations, causing financial losses, operational disruptions, and data breaches. Traditional security solutions struggle to detect emerging or sophisticated ransomware variants, especially those with no known signatures or patterns. This can lead to delayed or missed detection, allowing the ransomware to spread within the network.


The MixMode Platform helps organizations adopt a multi-layered approach to ransomware defense. MixMode AI creates an intelligent evolving baseline of your environment to actively monitor real-time data for any deviations or abnormal behavior.

The platform autonomously learns, adapts, and evolves without relying on rules, training, or tuning to detect threats missed by legacy detection methods in real-time.
