Artificial intelligence (AI) is an omnipresent topic these days, powering“ various products and online services. Great new feats were achieved thanks to this technology – for example AI helping researchers to see through walls – but it also has darker connotations, mostly predicting that AI could wipe out millions of jobs and render whole industries obsolete. “AI-powered” cyberattacks are becoming a trending topic in enterprises. According to the results of ESET’s survey, the vast majority of IT decision makers are concerned about future “AI-powered attacks” and the increased difficulty of detecting them.

Are we entering an era of AI-powered malware? Is this same technology going to protect organizations and are they already implementing it? ESET, as an established security vendor that has been fighting cybercriminals for decades, understands the upcoming challenges of potential malicious uses of ML algorithms and AI.

Find the answers to these questions as well as a peak under the hood of ESET’s machine learning engine Augur in our white paper. Discover also the limitations of this technology and how it works best in a multilayered solution in conjunction with other detection and prevention technologies. This white paper examines one of the most talked about topics in the cybersecurity and is essential reading for those in the industry as well those interested in learning about ML and AI.
