Cyber attacks continually evolve at an ever-increasing pace, making them much more sophisticated and dangerous compared to just a few years ago. Protecting against these advanced attacks requires advanced technologies.

This paper explains how Check Point actively prevents today’s sophisticated Fifth Generation cyber attacks by leveraging artificial intelligence in its security solutions.

Traditional security solutions are based on a single detection engine, or a combination of several engines that are built on logic that uses signatures and rules-based analysis. While these methods are important for fast detection of many known threats – as well as some unknown ones – they are limited in scale and capability. The velocity of malware evolution, an increasing number of devices and technologies that need protection, and a huge amount of data to process all combine to make it impossible for human-created models to give comprehensive, up-to-date protection. Therefore, relying solely on traditional detection engines leaves organisations exposed to incredibly damaging attacks. Check Point overcomes this challenge by incorporating artificial intelligence into its unified, multi-layered security architecture. By doing so, the company provides an ever-improving, intelligent system that doesn’t just detect, but actively prevents complex, sophisticated attacks.
