Envisioning AI to Be Your Delegate on Identification and Resolution of Endpoint Vulnerabilities

Malwarebytes, a global leader in real-time cyber protection, has officially announced the launch of a new powerful AI functionality for its industry-leading Security Advisor. According to certain reports, the stated functionality will try, in practice, and transform Malwarebytes’ Security Advisor into a dynamic experience. Once achieved, this experience will enable customers to use simple natural language requests to search for information about their environment, ask for recommendations on how to optimize their security posture, automatically implement updates, and do a whole lot more. Now, when one has such a setup in place, they should be able to quickly mitigate threats, reduce risk, and boost efficiency. Talk about the whole value proposition on a slightly deeper level, we begin from the functionality’s promise of eliminating threats through AI-powered search. Here, the core idea is rooted in using NLP (natural language processing) and generative AI to help Security Advisor understand the context of a query and quickly identify relevant information. Hence, it will empower ThreatDown administrators to identify threats they might have missed with, let’s say, a traditional keyword-based search. Not just that, these administrators will also avoid any obligations to download, filter, and sort through search results. To give you an example of the same, if an admin inquires regarding any unprotected endpoints, the AI will search for endpoints that are missing security patches or have weak configurations before quickly returning with concise and easy-to-understand results.

Next up, we must discuss the new solution’s approach of improving IT and security team efficiency to get a better hold on costs. You see, by streamlining the process for ThreatDown administrators to access crucial information, the functionality basically ensures that one can pinpoint and mitigate potential security threats right as they emerge. Such an arrangement, like you can guess, does plenty to save time and resources.

“Today’s IT teams want an immediate view into their security posture with actionable recommendations,” said Michael Suby, Research Vice President of Security and Trust at IDC. “ThreatDown’s Security Advisor is already a powerful differentiator for Malwarebytes and adding the power of AI will even further help resource-constrained IT teams deal quickly and effectively with today’s threats.”

Having touched on the functionality’s ability to assist in you identify vulnerable endpoints, we must offer a few details on the way it can soon help you remedy those gaps as well. In future versions, after the system has returned with a lowdown on your security weaklings, you can ask the AI in play to implement neccesary measures across the entire environment and automatically update your organization’s overall security posture.

Resetting our focus on what will be available at launch, though; Malwarebytes’ latest brainchild will allow users to engage directly with Security Advisor to ask conversational questions on endpoints, detections, vulnerabilities pages in Nebula, and moew

“Our latest AI functionality will provide a dynamic user experience for our customers,” said Motil Jayakar, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Malwarebytes. “Now, ThreatDown users can interact with their endpoints and environments in a completely new way. The AI-powered Security Advisor enables customers to surface insights, recommendations, and even remediation options within seconds, resulting in risk reduction and efficiency gains that won’t break the bank.”
