AI-powered chatbot helps combat cyber attacks
The key to defeating cyber attacks lies in being able to make the correct response in a timely manner, but frontline security staff may lack the skills or resources to spot problems early.
Endpoint security company Endgame is launching an intelligent assistant built to automate security operations analyst actions and guide users of any skill level to detect and respond to advanced attacks.
Called Artemis, the software uses machine learning and natural language processing techniques that enable it to anticipate priorities for security teams and detect patterns in malicious behavior before the analyst knows to look for it. The company describes it as 'Siri for Security' and it can help inexperienced analysts craft query programs to sift through endpoint data without returning extraneous information.
Artemis also has the ability to launch investigations against all data collected from monitored endpoints, and deliver a simplified user experience through a conversational interface, allowing analysts to achieve results in fewer actions.
"Security teams are faced with two major challenges: insufficient resources to stop attacks in-progress and lack of automated solutions to uncover malicious behavior in time to prevent information theft," says Jamie Butler, CTO of Endgame. "Just as digital assistants like Siri or Alexa proved their ability to give time back to our day by tackling complex tasks, Artemis is an assistant that automatically combs through millions of data points to provide intelligent decisions for the security industry. Security teams, especially those that lack sufficient resources, will now have the analytic depth required to find malicious activity across all enterprise endpoints and eliminate threats in time to stop damage and loss."
