“Data suggests that artificial intelligence was put to work in a cybersecurity capacity more than in any other area of service last year. With the use of deep learning algorithms, AI is leading the charge on a secure internet.
Specifically in detecting and deterring security intrusions, with 44 percent of all AI applications being used for that purpose.
Azure Sentinel, Microsoft’s cloud-based SIEM (security information and event management) tool is one such example of an artificial intelligence that doesn’t just automate security operations tasks but uses algorithms to learn from its actions. Like any AI, the more data it receives, the more accurate its decisions are in identifying threats and responding to them.”
