What are APTs, and how can Antivirus AI help me?

APTs (Advanced Persistent Threats) are sophisticated cyber-attacks where an attacker gains unauthorized access to a target's network and maintains this access for an extended period, often undetected.

These attacks are usually highly targeted and motivated by specific goals such as intellectual property theft, espionage, or political influence.

Antivirus AI is a security solution that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms to detect and prevent APT attacks. It monitors network traffic and behavior patterns to identify potential threats and can quickly respond to them.

The solution also includes other security features, such as intrusion detection and prevention, malware vaccinations, and malware protection, to provide a comprehensive security solution. By using Antivirus AI, you can increase the security of your network and protect against APT attacks and other types of cyber threats.

Antivirus AI can detect Trojans from government organizations, including advanced persistent threats such as Pegasus and FinSpy. With over 5 million Android users, we have recorded 28,458 detections of these state-sponsored threats as of November 2022.

To explain to you in a picture what an APT is, here is a try:

An APT is like a sneaky thief who sneaks into a house and stays there for a long time, trying to steal essential things or spy on the people living there. But instead of a real home, the thief tries to get into a computer network and steal important information or cause harm.

The thief is very clever and knows how to hide, so it can be challenging to catch them. APTs can also be compared to a game of hide and seek, where the attacker is hiding and trying to find and steal valuable information while the defender (e.g., a security system) is trying to find the attacker and stop them.
