Palo Alto Networks
In April 2023, Palo Alto Networks began leveraging Generative AI in its security operations centre platform by utilising threat detection logs. The company’s CEO, Nikesh Arora, sees the adoption of Generative AI as a transformational opportunity for Palo Alto and the enterprise software industry as a whole. He believes that many organisations will struggle to grasp this opportunity correctly. Palo Alto’s Chief Product Officer, Lee Klarich, highlights the advantage of having a large data lake in the security industry, stating that companies with extensive data and a data-led strategy are well-positioned to benefit from the operational leverage of Generative AI.2
At the RSA Conference in April 2023, SentinelOne unveiled Generative AI features on its threat-hunting platform. The platform includes a large-language model (LLM) natural language interface and an embedded decision-making neural network. These AI tools enable threat researchers to ask complex questions about threats, receive detailed answers within seconds, identify attacks more easily and manage enterprise security through command execution.
SentinelOne’s Chief Product and Technology Officer, Ric Smith, states that hackers have been leveraging AI to execute attacks faster and more efficiently and that the company aims to empower security teams with the same technology for swift response and prevention.
SentinelOne’s platform aggregates and correlates data from various sources, providing actionable insights and recommendations in real-time. It utilises a combination of open-source and vendor-specific AI models, and while AI will continue to improve, human intervention remains crucial for training the model and enhancing its effectiveness.3
