NAVWAR Enterprise Places FireEye First in Artificial Intelligence Challenge

FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), an intelligence-led security company, has announced that the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR) enterprise named FireEye® Endpoint Security as the USD 100,000 first place winner of the Artificial Intelligence Applications to Autonomous Cybersecurity Challenge (AI ATAC), the company said.

The challenge found FireEye Endpoint Security to deliver the best performance based on the criteria and cost-benefit framework. This includes accuracy metrics, time to detection in terms of costs lost due to malware and the monetary cost for setup, triage and incident response. The malware collection used also spanned categories likely to be seen in the real-world to produce the most effective evaluation.

Managed by Program Executive Office (PEO) for Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) and Space System´s Cyber Security Program Office (PMW 130), AI ATAC explored the capability for endpoint security products to incorporate machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) models to detect and defeat indicators of compromise from various advanced malware strains.
