AI is quickly transforming the cybersecurity field in different ways imaginable. Some ways in which other security vendors are hoping to implement AI into their services, solutions, or business strategies include incident detection, incident response, and risk management.

Cloudbric recognizes that web attacks are constantly evolving so what better way to combat and detect modern cyberattacks than with a deep learning-powered universal security platform?

Enter VISION — Cloudbric’s deep learning engine that will form the basis for not only its security platform but also its decentralized cybersecurity ecosystem that boasts a user-powered security rewards system and a cybersecurity resource hub for developers, Cloudbric Labs.

How does VISION work?

Luckily, Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) arose as one of the leading deep learning architectures. VISION relies on a CNN learning model that is able to extract patterns of behavior using a diverse set of attack inputs and data.

What are the benefits of CNN? CNN is computationally efficient and can address every image related problem. More information about CNN can be found here.

How does VISION differ from other deep learning/AI-based engines?

Because Cloudbric needed to make sure the machine could accept all characters, including those derived from unique web attacks URLs and a variety of languages, the research and development came up with a new solution: a method to help “convert” cyber attacks in UTF-8 hexadecimal format by turning it into an image first and then feeding it back into to the deep learning machine. With this, the machine will be able to recognize web traffic.

Additionally, Cloudbric is experimenting with incremental learning in order to improve machine accuracy. Though still in its primitive stage, early testing has indicated a 85% accuracy rate increase compared to Cloudbric’s existing WAF, which already boasts one of the lowest false positive rates in the market.

Cloudbric’s has plans to patent this technology under the name VISION.

What is VISION’s goal?

Through its integration into Cloudbric’s existing and soon-to-be developed security solutions that comprise the universal security platform, VISION will lead the way in transforming the cybersecurity realm with its deep-learning capabilities.
