    Beyond the anomaly: evolving the intelligence from artificial intelligence

    Traditionally, cyber security solutions attempted to defend an organisation’s perimeter against threats. But without AI, these systems were inaccurate and inflexible, unable to keep pace with the volume and velocity of attacks or adapt to the dynamic nature of doing business. Even now, more advanced systems have significant failings. Single-point solutions are bolted together and the resulting jigsaw puzzle leaves blind spots between security applications that hackers can, and will, exploit.

    Even recent developments in machine learning technologies are unable to differentiate between behaviour that is anomalous and that which is truly malicious. This results in a high number of alerts, most of which are in fact false positives - wasting time and money. Organisations are increasingly ill-equipped to deal with the mounting volume of not only attacks, but alerts. Attackers and insider threat actors have the advantage, driven by accelerating complexity, the volume and variety of data and the cat-and-mouse game between the attacker and defender.
