POINT ROBERTS, Wash. and DELTA, British Columbia, March 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Investorideas.com, a global investor news source covering security and Artificial Intelligence issues a special edition of The AI Eye, looking at how AI is playing a significant role in the future of security.
As AI technology is optimized and becomes more available, its implementation into both cyber and real-world security is fast becoming a necessity in staying ahead of future threats.
Comcast recently acquired BlueVector, the technology company spun off from defense contractor Northrop Grumman two years ago which uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide cybersecurity services to companies and government agencies.
This was shortly followed by Verizon announcing the addition of BlackBerry Cylance's AI-driven antivirus security solutions to its industry-leading Managed Security Services (MSS) portfolio.
Blackberry Cylance, a business unit of BlackBerry Limited (NYSE:BB) (TSX:BB), was recently recognized as a leader in five distinct categories at the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards: Best Cybersecurity Company, Most Innovative Cybersecurity Company, Endpoint Detection and Response, Endpoint Security and Best Cybersecurity Podcast.
"Businesses of all sizes are suffering alert-fatigue generated by other endpoint solutions. Many are turning to managed security services to gain holistic, expert-level management across their endpoints, gateways and networks on a round the clock basis," said Stuart McClure, co-founder of Cylance and President of BlackBerry Cylance. "By offering BlackBerry Cylance's AI-powered endpoint protection, Verizon's MSS customers will now have access to a powerful antivirus technology with the ability to prevent known and unknown threats, reducing the strain on other security controls, and alerts that must be tracked, processed and audited."
Cyberfort Software, Inc. (OTC: CYBF), a cyber security technology company, announced new features to its recently acquired Just Content App, including the imminent release of its integrated artificial intelligence (AI) solution.
Just Content leverages proprietary technologies to help safeguard families and businesses from online threats such as unsafe links, adult content, phishing sites and inflammatory hate speech found on the Internet. The recent upgrades ship with the highest security as default, a smooth onboarding experience and data usage features that provide the best protection for both new and experienced users.
“We have been working hard to leverage our expertise in machine learning and artificial intelligence to provide solutions for customer problems like spam SMSes and robo calls. We are delighted to say that our spam filtering solution is extremely close to release. At the same time, a content moderation platform for businesses and enterprises is currently under development,” shares Krishna Kumar, Senior Developer at Cyberfort Software and Founder of Just Content.
VIQ Solutions Inc. (TSXV: VQS), a global expert providing cyber-secure AI technology and services has also put some focus into “on the ground” security, having announced last year its acquisition of Net Transcripts, Inc., a leading provider of secure multi-speaker documentation services to law enforcement and criminal justice organizations.
“The acquisition of Net Transcripts, a market and trusted leader in law enforcement, is a substantial milestone in VIQ’s growth strategy to expand our portfolio of services, opening up a significant and growing market in the USA. This highly fragmented market is undergoing major disruption due to artificial intelligence, which is encouraging customers to look at innovative ways to unlock the value in their digital media,” said Sebastien Paré, VIQ President and CEO.
AI has many obvious uses in the world of cybersecurity but that doesn’t mean it can’t be applied to real world security situations just as well.
Quest Solution, Inc. (OTC: QUES), a provider of Supply Chain and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based Machine Vision solutions, announced that it was selected to install a state-of-the-art AI-based safety and security system on the campus of a Pre-K – 12 preparatory School in South Florida. This system will provide enhanced safety for students, faculty and visitors to the school. For safety reasons the name of the school is not disclosed.
The Quest Safe School System is based on technology from Quest’s recently acquired subsidiary HTS Image Processing and offers real-time, automated vehicle recognition via machine vision. In a school setting, the system is hosted on a cloud-based platform integrated with campus intelligence, tracking vehicles, students, staff, deliveries and campus visitors. The Safe School System has whitelist and blacklist capabilities to immediately identify vehicles upon arrival, allowing the admittance of authorized cars or a real-time alarm for any unauthorized and/or suspicious vehicle.
AI implementation is fast becoming a necessary security feature, as large tech firms such as Palo Alto Networks Inc. and Microsoft Corp. are showing, which is good news for customers and consumers as these new features allow for tireless protection in an age of information fatigue.
