As cyberattacks continue to be a threat, artificial intelligence is giving iGaming operators more security

It’s doubtful that cyberattacks are going to disappear anytime soon, but new tools are constantly being developed that help mitigate the threat. Artificial intelligence (AI) has proven to be vital at thwarting attacks, using its superior data processing and analysis capabilities to stop attacks even before they start. The iGaming space, which has to ensure its operations are secure at all times, is incorporating AI-based anti-ransomware software created by NetWitness into their systems to give them greater defense.

NetWitness has created its Ransomware Defense Cloud Services, which monitors endpoints without the need for traditional deployment and software installation requirements. It uses AI to prevent attacks and includes advanced detection developed through innovative research and development and attack histories. It offers both prevention and preparedness to iGaming operators that are looking for a more robust solution and greater protection.

“The ransomware threat is becoming more persistent and sophisticated with every passing day. New ransomware variants, novel attacks, and ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) mean that no organization can ignore the potential for attack or delay taking proactive steps to prepare for when they happen,” said Dr. Zulfikar Ramzan, Chief Technology and Product Officer of NetWitness. “Preventing and limiting damages from these attacks require a mix of technology, research, analysis, and threat hunting. NetWitness Ransomware Defense Cloud Services combine various areas of NetWitness expertise to help enterprises avoid headline-making ransomware incidents and are delivered through the cloud for rapid deployment.”

Security teams must be able to receive forensic value from available technology solutions without worrying about additional hardware loads or the need for more manpower. NetWitness Ransomware Defense Cloud Services succinctly addresses these concerns, offering expert intelligence through a cloud solution that has been developed, in part, by ransomware specialists and experienced threat hunters, as well as continuous research and development.
