Google Threat Intelligence Will Use Gemini For Cybersecurity

Google Threat Intelligence Will Use Gemini For Cybersecurity

Date: May 08, 2024

Google Threat Intelligence is the latest introduction by Alphabet INC. and will function as the main cybersecurity layer for its service offerings.

Google has invested heavily in developing various AI-powered features, independent tools, and security layers across its service offerings. In its latest effort, Google is utilizing Gemini AI for cybersecurity protocols, and has launched a new security tech called Google Threat Intelligence. GTI is claimed to have the capability to reverse engineer the world’s most feared ransomware in just 34 seconds.

GTI combines the expertise of Manidant cybersecurity unit and VirusTotal threat intelligence framework to identify global security threats and provide preventive measures. In a recent test, Google Threat Intelligence used Gemini AI’s large language model to reverse engineer WannaCry, and identify a loophole to permanently shut it down. For those who don’t know, WannaCry was one of the biggest ransomware threats that impacted some of the largest organizations in the world.

Apart from identifying and reverse engineer global threats, GTI uses Gemini AI to summarize threat reports into a natural laymann language for enterprises to decode and analyze how the attacks might impact business. Google states that GTI has access to a large amount of network information to offer a bigger picture in the cybersecurity world. The vision-focused insights help businesses prioritize immediate steps to prevent attacks and their associated consequences.

The combination of GTI and Gemini gives Google access to both the intelligence and information by crawling freely on the internet to provide real-time information around various malwares, ransomwares, and other potential cyber attacks. It also categorizes online threats based on the organization’s online exposure with ways to counter them. 

Organizations are already preparing budgets to use Gemini AI on multiple fronts, including cybersecurity. The move has surfaced after Microsoft unveiled Co-Pilot for cybersecurity enhancement using its latest GPT-4 LLM. The tool is widely used to ask questions around cybersecurity, but the tool recommends consulting a cybersecurity expert before implementing its resolutions.
