5 Questions for Evaluating AI Driven Security Solutions


To effectively evaluate AI based security technologies, it is first important to understand the meaning of AI and machine learning in the context of cybersecurity:

  • AI is the broader concept of machines being able to carry out tasks in a way that humans consider intelligent
  • Machine learning is a more specific application of AI that is based upon the principle that machines can perform assigned tasks intelligently if they are given access to data sets and allowed to learn for themselves — this process is often referred to as “training”

  • These definitions may raise more questions than they answer when you begin to apply them to how technology vendors are incorporating these capabilities into their products.
