Next-generation data security will rely on silicon and artificial intelligence

Data security is at an inflection point. As the threats faced by consumers, businesses and countries continue to grow, the need for smart security solutions that incorporate silicon and software becomes even more important. Tackling today’s security threats means moving far beyond scanning files against a known list of threats. This reactive model has been displaced by real-time analysis, using complex models, behavior analysis and artificial intelligence (AI) to quickly discern between valid and malicious user activity. And behind these complex models is large scale, high performance computing comprised of CPUs, GPUs and dedicated security silicon. Security is an engineering challenge because to do it well the system must look at a number of factors, all of which rely on increasing levels of computation. Take the most basic form of…
