Abstract:

Clear Hat Consulting is combining machine learning and virtualization technologies to detect deviant, low level system behavior patterns characteristic of sophisticated, stealthy malware. A number of factors are currently driving a demand for innovative technologies capable of detecting advanced cyber threats.
