20 Hottest Cybersecurity Products At RSAC 2023
At RSA Conference 2023 this week, vendors are showcasing new products in categories including XDR, email security, vulnerability management and application security.
Google Cloud Security AI Workbench
In another generative AI announcement on Day One of RSAC 2023, Google Cloud unveiled its Security AI Workbench offering that’s powered by a new, security-specific large language model known as Sec-PaLM. The model utilizes Google Cloud’s security intelligence via Google’s broad visibility into threat data and Mandiant’s esteemed threat intel around vulnerabilities and malware, as well as threat actors and threat indicators, according to Google Cloud.
“We have a unique opportunity in Google where we actually have both the infrastructure to cost-effectively deliver next-generation AI, but also to infuse it with threat intel, and a lot of data to train our own large language model,” said Sunil Potti, vice president and general manager for Google Cloud’s security business. “So rather than just say we’re using a Google version of the large language model, we’ve actually built a new security LLM.” While Sec-PaLM is based on Google’s LLM, “it’s customized and purpose-built—custom-trained—using security-related data coming from all of our sources that we have currently,” Potti told CRN.
The Google Cloud Security AI Workbench is aimed at helping to reduce the overload from threat data and the large number of security tools in use, the company said. Customers will be able to provide their private data to the Security AI Workbench platform only at inference time to enhance privacy, Google Cloud said.
The first place Google Cloud will be implementing Security AI Workbench is with a new offering, VirusTotal Code Insight, that uses the technology to analyze potentially malicious scripts and explain their behavior, ultimately helping to improve the detection of which scripts are a real threat, Google Cloud said. The offering is now in preview. Other offerings using Security AI Workbench “will be available in preview more broadly this summer,” the company said in a post.
