Enterprise security is every employee’s lookout with cyberattacks increasing. Is Artificial intelligence well suited to stem the tide of attacks?
Did you know more than half of large companies receive 10,000 security alerts daily from the threat monitor software tools? And many security professionals expect an uptick in AI-assisted attacks?
According to AIMultiple, 90 per cent of InfoSec personnel in the US and Japan said they’re anticipating an increase in automated attack campaigns due to the public availability of AI research, which attackers are exploiting for their malicious purposes.
With the widespread IoT devices, Internet connectivity and processing capabilities have improved operating speed in relatively isolated machines. According to a Cisco report, there were 20 billion devices connected to the Internet in 2021, and the number is expected to jump to 29 billion by 2023. More employees are now working from home or in hybrid arrangements, meaning that there is now a spectrum of vulnerable devices that could serve as an entry point to corporate networks. Gartner recently named Machine Identity one of the top five growing cybersecurity and risk trends of the year.
The consequences can be dire when organisations fail to keep up with the volume and variety of machine identities they need. With cyberattacks increasing, AI is well suited to stem the tide of attacks. It can find patterns in vast amounts of data and analyse and correlate distinct characteristics of data to identify anomalies or potential breaches. This delivers faster and improved security insights, more efficient and automated operations, and human error or oversight reductions.
