Artificial Intelligence is a technological attempt to simulate the major aspects of human cognitive functions and deploy them to machines. This mainly suits enterprises that involve a lot of tasks not to be completely automated but require a bit of intelligence. AI particularly mimics three aspects of intelligence. The first one is Learning where the machine can turn vast swaths of data into actionable information. Reasoning capabilities for choosing the correct algorithm to attain the required output are the second quality. The final and most important one is Self-learning which allows smart devices and software programs like Siri and Alexa to give you behavioural responses to your wide range of questions.

of enterprises believe that AI will be required to respond to cyberattacks in the coming future.'
The type, impact, and complexity of attacks are rapidly changing in the modern enterprise environment. Cyber threats are becoming more sophisticated and the risk of hack and breach incidents against businesses is increasing exponentially. It is not that security measures are not evolving with time. Methods like Web Application Pentesting, vulnerability assessment, and cloud security measures have improved a lot. Still, there are instances of security breaches. This proves that attackers are having more advanced technology stacks and methodologies than the ones we use in our security.
Artificial Intelligence can be the best potential solution for this type of security problem. It can help computer systems to learn, reason, and act according to the vast data sets collected by their sensors. The major challenges in front of AI are:
There is a scarcity of skilled security professionals among most organizations. Also, the amount of data to process exceeds way beyond human potential. AI can solve most of the problems by automating these processes.
Deploying a self-learning, AI-based management system to regulate your cyber security posture can improve threat detection and respond more efficiently than traditional software-driven approaches. The following are the ways AI can add up to your security systems:
Using an AI-based security mechanism not only accelerates the processing of security functionalities. But also has the following positives on offer:
