Artificial Intelligence and Ransomware Detection

Some of 2018’s biggest technology buzzwords are cyber security, cyber attacks, and artificial intelligence (AI). New developments have proven that artificial intelligence can detect malware in your systems and significantly reduce your risk of attack.  Protecting your data from cyber threats, such as ransomware, should be a top priority. Ransomware is a type of malware that breaks into your systems and locks down your data. The hacker then demands money in exchange for a key that unlocks your data. Even if you can afford to pay the ransom, there is no guarantee that you will get your information back. Luckily for businesses, the cybersecurity industry is focused on ensuring that there is technology out there to prevent this from happening.

Artificial intelligence has proven that it can detect malware. Traditional antivirus solutions act as an armor around your systems that constantly test for infections. Artificial intelligence creates an immune system that identifies malware on the spot. The AI can recognize a file as being good or bad and detect the bad files in your system before they have chance to take any of your data.

The reality is that technology, both good and bad, evolves to be stronger. Traditional technologies are limited in responding to increasing cyber threats. Artificial intelligence can help businesses stay ahead of the game and far away from a devastating ransomware attack.
