Symantec adds machine learning to fortify endpoint security - Computer Business Review

#artificialintelligence

The new Endpoint Protection uses machine learning, cloud capabilities and memory exploit to neutralise threats. Symantec has introduced Endpoint Protection 14, based on machine learning, to defeat cyber threats at endpoint. With the innovative protection techniques, the security company claims that the solution can stop and give response to threats at the endpoint itself, no matter how the attack is launched. According to the company, Endpoint Protection 14 is the first solution to combine essential endpoint technologies with machine learning and memory exploit mitigation in a single agent. Symantec says that the new product is a light weight package and claims that it has 99.9% efficacy, lower rate of false positives and 70% reduced footprint compared to previous generations, thanks to cloud lookup capabilities.

IBM's new Watson-powered AI assistant helps corporate IT better manage endpoints - TechRepublic

#artificialintelligence

On Monday, at the 2017 IBM InterConnect conference in Las Vegas, IBM unveiled a new, cloud-based cognitive assistant that it said will better help IT professionals secure endpoints like smartphones, laptops, and IoT products. The assistant, which is powered by IBM Watson, is formally known as the MaaS360 Advisor and is part of IBM's MaaS360 unified endpoint management (UEM) platform offered through the IBM Cloud. According to an IBM press release, "The MaaS360 Advisor will use machine learning to analyze devices on the network and recommend policies, patches and customized best practices to better manage and protect them." Over 80% of companies are already using AI and cognitive solutions to more effectively insight the data collected from their endpoints, according to the IBM Mobile Vision 2020 Study, so it makes sense that they could be using similar tools to protect those same endpoints. In its release, IBM said that nearly half of employees are using three devices or more to get work done every week.
