How Deep Neural Networks Built on AWS Can Help Predict and Prevent Security Threats

Deep learning is inspired by the human brain and once a brain learns to identify an object, its identification becomes second nature. Similarly, as Deep Instinct’s artificial neural network learns to detect more and more types of cyber threats, its prediction capabilities become instinctive. As a result, malware both known and new can be predicted and prevented in zero-time. Deep Instinct’s predictive threat prevention platform can be applied against known or unknown threats, whether it be a file or fileless attack.
