3 Reasons Why Machine Learning is Not a Cybersecurity Pipe Dream

02 Dec 3 Reasons Why Machine Learning is Not a Cybersecurity Pipe Dream Despite much skepticism about machine learning’s role in security, customers can benefit from machine intelligence when combatting sophisticated attacks. While some believe that machine learning is the latest pipe dream for security, I think otherwise. It all depends on how machine learning is applied. Below, I’ll dive into a few ways that machine intelligence can make a difference and enable analysts to stop chasing ghosts. #1: Machine learning accurately detects anomalies, despite weak signals and intelligent attackers The signals for many advanced attacks are weak. Using machine learning to generate alerts on anything that may be an attack (i.e., all the weak signals) only exacerbates the “alert white noise” problem – i.e., the deluge of alerts that…
