Machine learning and artificial intelligence for email security.

If you stop to think about it, it’s impressive the number of cybercriminals scattered around the world developing new types of attacks and threats, such as new phishing, new ransomware, and other malware.

Millions of threats are launched every year and one of the best ways to fight them is called: artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).

Protection systems based simply on lists, signatures, and human-defined rules are no longer as effective as they used to be.

As you evolve, technologies evolve and invaders evolve as well. That’s why artificial intelligence and machine learning must be seen as an indispensable ally.

That's why here at Gatefy we use AI and ML for email protection.

A system that uses AI and ML has the ability to learn. Within this context, machine learning is the tool that, through the analysis of data and information, will allow the AI to develop and learn.

As you can see, there is a whole system of learning, which is complex, and this learning process can take place through human recurrent interference or not.

Now that the introduction has been made, let's look at the relationship between artificial intelligence, machine learning, email security, and Gatefy.

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and email protection

Here at Gatefy, we use AI and ML to separate the wheat from the chaff.

As we fight malicious emails, AI and ML are at the heart of our system to examine emails, separating what is legitimate from what isn’t.

The goal isn't only to analyze technical aspects, but also the behavior and the intent of an email.

We use advanced ML techniques, such as deep neural networks, logistic regression, and BERT, in the analysis of millions of emails to continue developing to the maximum the potential and the intelligence of our system.

We don’t stop. We’re always thinking about new machine learning algorithms.

Email protection for businesses

In practice, it means that AI and ML end up being one of the best ways to fight custom attacks and advanced threats, such as zero-day ones.

Combined with other protection and security mechanisms, the result is a more robust and powerful system to combat different types of attacks, such as:

The fact is that artificial intelligence and machine learning have already revolutionized the world of cybersecurity and will continue to revolutionize even more.
