The cyberattack scenario is rapid and is continuing to grow. Depending on the size of your enterprise, there are up to several hundred billion time-varying signals that need to be analyzed to accurately calculate risk.
Analyzing and monitoring cyber risks are not under human control anymore.
In response to this unprecedented challenge, Artificial Intelligence (AI) based tools for cybersecurity have emerged to help information security teams reduce breach risk and improve their security posture efficiently and effectively.
Prophaze AI security solution helps to protect organizations from cyber risks and malicious attacks by using its intelligent algorithm mechanism that detects any suspicious activity trying an entry into your IT infrastructure.
This article looks into the benefits of integrating AI with cybersecurity.
Let’s check them out:
1.AI has a self-learning Capability
As the name suggests, AI technology is smart, and it uses its ability to improve network security over time. It uses machine learning and deep learning to learn a business network’s behavior over time. It recognizes patterns on the network and clusters them. It then proceeds to detect any deviations or security incidents from the norm before responding to them.
The patterns that artificial neural networks learn over time can help to improve security in the future. Potential threats with similar traits to those recorded get blocked early enough. The fact that AI keeps learning makes it difficult for hackers to beat its intelligence.
2. Latest Threats Detection
A human being may not be able to identify all the threats a company faces. Every year, hackers launch hundreds of millions of attacks with different motives. Unknown threats can cause massive damage to a network. Worse still is the impact they can have before you detect, identify, and prevent them.
As attackers try new tactics from sophisticated social engineering to malware attacks, it is necessary to use modern solutions to prevent them. AI has proven to be one of the best technologies in mapping and stopping unknown threats from ravaging a company.
3. Ability to Handle a Large Amount of Data
A lot of activity happens on a company’s network. An average mid-sized company itself has huge traffic. That means there’s a lot of data transferred between customers and the business daily. This data needs protection from malicious people and software. But then, cybersecurity personnel cannot check all the traffic for possible threats.
AI is the best solution that will help you detect any threats masked as normal activity. Its automated nature allows it to skim through massive chunks of data and traffic. Technology that uses AI, such as a residential proxy, can help you to transfer data. It can also detect and identify any threats hidden in the sea of chaotic traffic.
4. Intelligent Vulnerability Management
Vulnerability management is key to securing a company’s network. As mentioned earlier, an average company deals with many threats daily. It needs to detect, identify and prevent them to be safe. Analyzing and assessing the existing security measures through AI research can help in vulnerability management.
AI helps you assess systems quicker than cybersecurity personnel, thereby increasing your problem-solving ability manifold. It identifies weak points in computer systems and business networks and helps businesses focus on important security tasks. That makes it possible to manage vulnerability and secure business systems in time.
5. Wholesome Security
The threats that business networks face change from time to time. Hackers change their tactics every day. That makes it difficult to prioritize security tasks at a company. You may have to deal with a phishing attack along with a denial-of-service attack or ransomware at a go.
These attacks have similar potential but you must know what to deal with first. Bigger threats that can make security a challenge are human error and negligence. The solution here is to deploy AI on your network to detect all types of attacks and help you prioritize and prevent them.
6. Speed up detection and block malicious traffic
Threat detection is the beginning of protecting your company’s network. It would be best if you detected things like untrusted data quickly. It will save you from irreversible damage to your network.
The best way to detect and respond to threats in time is by integrating AI with cybersecurity. AI scans your entire system and checks for any possible threats. Unlike humans, AI will identify threats extremely early and simplify your security tasks.
Keeping your data and network secured isn’t easy in today’s business environment. You can take a decisive step towards being safer by adopting AI to strengthen your security infrastructure. There are several benefits of using AI for business security and we anticipate that very soon artificial intelligence will become an integral part of business cybersecurity.
