Using AI to Fight Malware

ai to fight malware

Technology companies are increasing security software capabilities to more effectively respond to the rapidly evolving threat landscape. Artificial intelligence (AI) and ML are at the heart of these efforts because they detect advanced and previously unknown malware faster than traditional antivirus solutions.

In February 2018, thousands of users were infected with the malware in USA, because a breach in existing antivirus software. Traditional security solutions are no longer a viable option, and adopting AI and ML-based solutions faster will only guarantee against persistent and awkward cyber attacks.

Microsoft was immediately alerted through cloud-based AV software. Available by default on all Windows 10 PCs, the software scans files using a lightweight machine learning (ML) model built into the client's system and finds the file suspicious.

The file is then sent to the antivirus cloud service, where the metadata-based ML classifier immediately identifies and blocks the file, while the deep learning ML model identifies the file as a variant of Trojan:Win32/Emotet, which is widely used, bank spying malware.

Business Owners Demand Faster Software Delivery

Business owners are losing patience on software projects. They see and feel that competitors are advancing their business. They are pushing on their IT departments harder, pressing for more and faster delivery of software that will keep their companies in the digital race. They like what IT is delivering, but the challenge for IT managers is to keep up with the speed of software delivery with as few bugs as possible.

software development speed

The latest survey of 310 IT executives, conducted by Forrester Consulting in partnership with Eggplant, finds that the majority of enterprise leaders, namely 70%, name the functional outcomes and software added value created by the software delivered as "good" or "excellent," . However, close to half feel things aren't just being delivered fast enough for their business. 46% of the respondents named the speed of testing as "average", "fair", or "poor", and 41% say the same about the speed of their overall custom application development. More than a third of all executives (36%) also rated the quality of code in development for testing as "average" or even worse.

But overall, C-suite executives are happy with the applications and solutions that come out of the pipeline. However, they are worried for the faster delivery of these apps.

Apple's emphasis was on "further extending its competitive differentiation over other consumer device OEMs with an emphasis on its software leadership," claimed JPMorgan's expert Samik Chatterjee. The software analyst highlighted privacy features in iOS 13 such as "Sign in With Apple," feature and the creation of brand new operating system for iPad, called iPadOS, shifting away from giving iPads "second hand features of the iPhone.". The latter news is a shocking one for developers.
