The world operates on data, and humans will never be able to keep track of or protect all of it. Artificial intelligence (AI)-enhanced Cybersecurity, when used wisely, may offer critical levels of safety to modern enterprise networks. According to Technavio, the AI-based Cybersecurity market would rise by $19 billion between 2021 and 2025. The rising complexity of enterprise networking architectures, which often comprise a mix of legacy, on-premises infrastructure, and cloud services that all need to be accessible remotely, is cited by the company.
Artificial intelligence technologies improve productivity and accuracy while also reducing the impact of the continuous labour scarcity in this industry. It’s only logical that as businesses become more comfortable with autonomous apps that assist expedite operations and eliminate human error, we’ll see more AI in cybersecurity adoption. Cybercriminals were already waiting to pounce on weaknesses exacerbated by the massive surge of insecure network connections when people throughout the world were sent home from their offices to work remotely in 2020 during the COVID-19 epidemic.
The same strategies have been used in the SecOps area, which has been coping with a skilled workforce scarcity for some years. (ISC)2 anticipates that the Cybersecurity sector will require around 3 million certified personnel by 2020, according to its 2020 Workforce Study. According to the report, 64 percent of professionals surveyed believe the Cybersecurity skills shortage is affecting their firm. Vulnerabilities naturally increase when SecOps teams are understaffed. Cybercriminals are well aware that no human being could keep up with every possible threat. In these scenarios, artificial intelligence (AI) plays a role. Attack patterns, suspicious email behaviour, and the most vulnerable network endpoints can all be identified using sophisticated AI-driven algorithms.
