Security professionals must examine the classical defense mechanisms in place to determine if they can withstand an attack based on artificial intelligence. L7Defense is a pioneer in the ability to defend from attacks in real-time using unsupervised machine learning. The automatic spreading of malware represented the major route for automation and marked the first phase of fully automated DDoS attacks. If a DNS server can amplify requests to a factor of 200 a bad actor with bandwidth of 100Mbps using both amplification and reflection techniques can generate an attack of 200Gbps. Application attacks are heaven for bad actors. Supervised learning can help to a certain extent but in a world that is full of dynamic variables, you really need a system that can adapt to these changes and predict the unknown future that AI-based attacks will bring.
