Should I use AI with cybersecurity tools? What are the benefits?

AI can help with automating security and making your processes more seamless and more automated.

Some of the things you see AI doing now and will continue doing:

  • Analysis of logs and events for anomalies - especially in systems with a large volume and velocity.
  • Orchestration and automation of security controls and processes (such as patch management) according to efficiency, performance and security needs.
  • Response to security events according to your infrastructure.
  • "Smart" decision making according to vulnerabilities and the current environment deployment.

It is important to know though, that AI should be used as a supplemental system rather than a replacement for humans. While AI can help improve the overall efficiency and effectiveness of cybersecurity efforts,  it is still important for security personnel to interpret the results, make decisions and review decisions made.
