How AI can stop tomorrow’s malware threats today
The traditional approach of fighting malware has always been reactive. A new attack is released, it infects a few companies, and antivirus vendors race to issue an update. Some organizations may get the update before the malware makes its way in, but many will not. Obviously, this isn’t an ideal situation as the good guys are always chasing the bad guys.
If you were Marty McFly, you could fire up the old flux capacitor with 1.2 Gigawatts of power, jump ahead in time and bring updates back with you so you’re ready for WannaCry, Qakbot or, my favorite, Zeus. Fortunately, there’s another way to stop attacks before they impact anyone, and that’s to use artificial intelligence (AI) based systems.
