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.

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
"The Striim platform is a full end-to-end streaming integration and analytics platform that is middleware that covers a lot of different use cases," explained Steve Wilkes, Founder and CTO at Striim, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
"MobiDev is a Ukraine-based software development company. We do mobile development, and we're specialists in that. But we do full stack software development for entrepreneurs, for emerging companies, and for enterprise ventures," explained Alan Winters, U.S. Head of Business Development at MobiDev, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved.

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 ...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
