This is one of the broader terms in security, but still highly important and constantly evolving. AI isn’t a single tool or product. It’s really more of a method where an application can learn, adapt, and act. This is often seen in machine learning or behavioral analysis, but there are many different tools that fall under AI. Here is an example of how AI keeps you safe.
Artificial Intelligence in an Antivirus solution looks at an email file and determines that when opened it will access sensitive documents and erase them. Even though the code in the file has never been seen before, the AI knows this action is malicious and determines it should block it, notify you, and then submit the code to the cloud for further analysis.« Back to Glossary Index
