With the threats targeted at cloud systems such as Advanced Persistent Threats, hacked APIs, compromised credentials, broken authentication, DoS attacks and data breaches, there's never been a better time to protect your business. In a cyber-security context, AI (Artificial Intelligence) is a technique that perceives its environment well enough to identify events and take action against a predefined purpose. AI is particularly good at recognizing patterns and anomalies within them, which makes it an excellent strategy to detect threats. Machine learning is often used with AI. It is software that can "learn" on its own based on human input and results of actions taken. Together with AI, machine learning can become a tool to predict outcomes based on past events.
