Artificial Intelligence Is Key to Autonomous Cyber Security Future

Artificial Intelligence Is a Foundational Technology Being Deployed Today to Immediately and Accurately Identify Threats

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/03/16 -- DB Networks®, a leader in database cybersecurity, today announced that the latest in Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based security technologies, including machine learning and behavioral analysis offered in the DB Networks DBN-6300 and Layer 7 Database Sensor, is being deployed to intelligently combat modern cyber security database threats. This is leading to a trend over the next several years where individual AI-based security systems will be integrated into organizations' comprehensive autonomous cyber security architecture. Intelligent security sensors will be deployed throughout the network to not only immediately and accurately identify security events, but also to remediate them.

The entire IT security industry is seeing a major transformation from signature-based solutions (black lists and white lists) to highly intelligent security solutions based on AI. There are two primary forces driving this transformation:

First, security professionals know signature matching is no longer an effective means to identifying modern attacks. Cyber criminals easily obfuscate their attacks to be unrecognizable to signature matching security systems. Cyber criminals automate these attacks to continuously test endless combinations of obfuscated attacks, and with enough time eventually penetrate the perimeter.

Second, IT security teams are severely understaffed. There is presently a shortage of more than 200,000 security professionals in the U.S. alone. Security operation centers are deluged with alerts each day and are able to respond to only a small fraction of them.

These two dynamic forces are causing security teams across all industries to look to automation to alleviate the distress their organizations are facing today.

"AI-based cyber security is truly a sea change in the security industry," said DB Networks' Chairman and CEO Brett Helm. "AI enables us to quickly and accurately 'separate the wheat from the chaff' to identify cyber attacks in progress. In future generations of product, DB Networks will use the output from AI to drive autonomous cyber security technologies that not only block attacks but also automatically heal the vulnerabilities."

DB Networks is dedicated to protecting mission critical databases through its patented AI technologies based on machine learning and behavioral analysis. Operating non-intrusively at the database tier, directly in front of the database servers, the DBN-6300 and Layer 7 Database Sensor are in the optimal location to conduct deep analysis of database traffic. These products can immediately and automatically identify compromised database credentials, non-intrusively discover all databases (including the undocumented databases), pinpoint traffic to/from restricted segments, and detect advanced database attacks.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships. And when the cloud is combined with the power of cognitive computing, it drives innovation and transformation that achieves astounding competitive advantage.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
