Artificial intelligence is capable of analyzing more data more rapidly than conventional alternatives

Artificial intelligence (AI), as a set of predictive and self-learning techniques, is helping to improve cybersecurity. It does this by continuously calibrating algorithms as they are exposed to new information. In an effort to provide yet another tool to protect platforms in the iGaming industry, Fortinet has unveiled FortiNDR, a new network detection and response offering that leverages powerful AI to make threat detection and response fully optimized process.

Fortinet said the introduction of this new application is expected to enable iGaming operators and their cybersecurity teams to have on hand a tool capable of automatically detecting and responding to abnormal network activity to thwart security incidents. The full suite of detection and response offerings enables the various security teams to move from a reactive to a proactive security posture.

Sometimes cyberattacks go undetected in time, making the consequences catastrophic, especially in an industry like iGaming. FortiNDR intends to make this a thing of the past, functioning as a shield capable of preventing and alarming a possible threat to systems long before they even have a negative impact.

Traditional techniques that rely on identity or the use of indicators of compromise can be enhanced, closing security gaps by managing and interpreting behavioral indicators. FortiNDR can also identify anomalous behavior that signals cyber-attack activity even before vulnerability patches are available.

The AI of this new system helps to automatically classify information by its level of criticality in the face of different regulations. This implies savings compared to the efforts currently made manually, avoiding the risks involved.
