The cybersecurity industry finds itself at a crossroads. The existing threat detection measures, once considered formidable, are struggling to keep up with the pace and complexity of modern cyber threats. Traditional approaches are often rigid, relying on static and stale mechanisms that attackers can easily bypass or manipulate.  

Maintaining security posture is extremely challenging, and attackers are still winning far too often. Geo-political borders add complexity to cybersecurity, with data traversing through different jurisdictions that have varying regulations and standards for data protection. Cyberthreats, however, are not confined to geographical borders; they are widespread and ubiquitous. New threat types almost always require new security content, and too often even require a new product release. This approach to security does not scale. More nimble and robust approaches are required, so that organizations don’t depend on release updates when new attack patterns emerge.  

AI is playing an instrumental role in navigating this intricate landscape by analyzing behavior patterns across diverse and global data flows, providing real-time threat detection that transcends boundaries. Accurate threat intelligence hinges on comprehensive data coverage and high-quality analytics. OpenText has invested decades in the development of precise machine learning (ML) models, making us a trusted leader in the field. 

Detecting and responding to threats faster  

The process of identifying threats is hypothesis-driven, involving finding a pattern of a potential threat and then looking for other similar instances. However, there are limitations that human operators face, such as the need for sleep or breaks. Compounded with increasing severity and sophistication of attacks and the shortage of skilled security personnel; detecting, and identifying threats is equivalent to finding a ‘needle in the haystack’.  

AI can automate this process, integrating data from various sources, synthesizing it, and engaging in a dialogue with experts to identify potential threats. By adding context, AI can help to streamline security measures, allowing users to focus and act confidently. 

In response to these challenges, OpenText is pioneering a revolutionary approach to cybersecurity that empowers organizations to effectively combat the dynamic threat landscape. At the heart of our cybersecurity portfolio is OpenText Cybersecurity Aviator™ — an evolutionary threat detection model that offers organizations a complete perspective of an attack with behavioral based threat hunting. This birds-eye view is critical for mitigation actions, especially to add context needed to detect and respond to those threats quickly.
