REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lastline Inc., the leader in advanced network-based malware protection, today released predictions and trends for the 2018 cyberthreat landscape. As in recent years, 2017 saw an increasing number of cyberattacks, and indications point to another tumultuous year in 2018. With companies storing more data in the cloud and the number of Internet-connected devices rapidly increasing, the appeal and opportunity for cybercrime continues to escalate.
However, technological advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have produced significant new products to combat cyberattacks, and these defense mechanisms are expected to continue to emerge throughout the new year. Lastline has issued a report on its 2018 predictions and trends, which can be viewed here.
“Cybercrime’s impact will be huge in 2018,” said Giovanni Vigna, Lastline co-founder and CTO. “The ever-increasing attack surface is already so large that the limited cybersecurity resources found in most organizations are unable to keep up with the onslaught. Fortunately, the cybersecurity industry is vigorously fighting back with advances in resiliency and automation technologies like ML and AI. During 2018, organizations will increasingly use these methods to defend themselves from cyberattacks.”
