Guided Interactive Conversation

Reinventing Cybersecurity Prevention with Deep Learning 

In last few years, the number of Infosec vendors increased dramatically. Though as you would expect the security landscape to improve, it is actually doing much worse than in the past.  Nearly two-thirds of enterprise players have been compromised in the past year by attacks which originated on the endpoint, according to a Ponemon Institute survey. The report says that figure is a 20% increase year-on-year.

Ponemon Institute showed that costs of a successful attack increased 42% year-over-year – with attacks on SMBs costing an average of $7,120,000 ($763 per endpoint), nearly two times the cost per endpoint for larger organizations ($440).  And, perhaps most astonishing, the survey showed that respondents estimated their current anti-virus platform is effective at blocking only 43% of attacks. This is because these solutions are only effective against known malware.

The report highlighted that the biggest threat to organizations are zero-day and fileless attacks.

The reasons for this may vary, but 2 main reasons are that over 350,000 machine-generated new malware is created daily which makes it almost impossible to have an effective solution against it and because many of these security vendors do not offer actual security. While they may offer data management solutions, BI suites, ways to analyze data, and different post-execution and post-infection management solutions, it is not what real security should be all about.

Deep Instinct is the first and only company to apply end-to-end deep learning to cybersecurity. Deep learning is inspired by the brain’s ability to learn. Once a brain learns to identify an object, its identification becomes second nature. Similarly, as Deep Instinct’s artificial deep neural network brain learns to prevent any type of cyber threat, its prediction capabilities become instinctive. As a result, any kind of malware, known and new, first-seen malware, zero-days, ransomware and APT attacks from any kind are predicted and prevented in zero-time with unmatched accuracy and speed anywhere in the enterprise – Network, EPP, Mobile – enabling a multi layered protection.

This Interacted Moderated Session will explore and discuss:

  • Machine Learning vs. Deep Learning
  • How Deep Learning works
  • The Deep Learning Checklist

About Deep Instinct

Dissatisfied with the available cyber security companies, Guy Caspi, Nadav Marman and Eli David (PhD) dedicated themselves to pursuing the uncharted territory of deep learning to find a security solution that would stop even the most sophisticated types of attacks. Together, they founded Deep Instinct, the world’s first and only deep learning cybersecurity company.

Taking this wildly innovative approach necessitated looking at things differently. Instead of looking for a cure, they looked to prevent. 

And through venturing into the depths of deep learning, they developed an artificial neural network brain that holds an instinctive ability to identify attacks in just milliseconds. Doing so, with the highest rate of detections and minimal false positives.  

Talk about business continuity! Organizations that have adopted Deep Instinct’s solution don’t even know they’ve been targeted! No stalling, no work interruptions, no expensive disasters.

At Deep Instinct, we prevent what others can’t find.

After years of working in the finest kitchens in Italy and the U.S., Chef Marc Vetri returned home to his native Philadelphia and took up residence in the intimate, historic townhouse that was once home to the lauded Le Bec-Fin. Together with his business partner, Jeff Benjamin, they opened Vetri Cucina’s doors in September of 1998.

Over the past two decades the restaurant has continued to offer outstanding rustic fare, handcrafted pastas, innovative flavor combinations and artful presentations inspired by Italian cuisine. Throughout this time, Marc and Jeff have been honored to give back to the city through their work with the Vetri Community Partnership.
