Why Not All Artificial Intelligence is Created Equal

The 21st century marks the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities for mass consumption. A staggering surge of AI has been applied to a myriad of uses — from driving cars to curing cancer.

AI has only recently entered the world of cybersecurity, but it’s occurring just in time. According to Gartner Research, the total market for all security will surpass $100B in 2019.

Companies are looking to spend on innovation to secure against cyber threats.

As a result, more tech startups today tout AI to secure funding, and more established vendors now claim to embed AI in their product lines.

Yet the hype around AI — what it is and how it works — has created confusion in the marketplace.

Whether you’re a CxO, an IT administrator, or SecOps operator, how do you make sense of the claims? Can you test for yourself to know the truth?

BlackBerry Cylance is a pioneer in applying AI to cybersecurity. The company spearheaded an innovation revolution by replacing legacy antivirus software with preventative solutions and services that protect the endpoint — and the organization. It stops zero-day threats and the most sophisticated attacks, both known and unknown.

So, what makes BlackBerry Cylance AI stand out from the rest? BlackBerry Cylance works because it:

  • Achieves efficacy rates at or higher than 99.1%1 (compared to 50-60% with legacy AV).
  • Requires minimal system resources, has low CPU usage, and a small memory footprint -Prevents attacks with exceptional speed — in milliseconds.
  • Requires no cloud connection to prevent threats. Unlike human analysis or competitive offerings, BlackBerry Cylance AI operates with unparalleled precision, preventing 99.1%1 of existing and never-before-seen malware.
