The popular cybersecurity company, Trend Micro, is introducing a new AI-powered security platform to combat widespread AI abuse.

The introduction of publicly accessible models like ChatGPT and Gemini helped spark AI usage across the world and has already contributed to many helpful cybersecurity projects and new technologies.

At the same time, hackers and other criminals use AI to make their attacks more complex and much harder to deal with. Attacks against companies and individuals are ramping up in number, putting pressure on governments and cybersecurity companies to take action.

To combat the rise of AI tools being used by threat actors, Trend Micro launched its Zero Trust Maturity Model (ZTMM) earlier this week. CEO Eva Chen initiated the push to increase its AI-based security models ahead of the 2024 RSA Conference where Trend Micro is expected to give a speech about AI threat intelligence.

The new features in Trend Vision One™ – Zero Trust Secure Access (ZTSA) include:

  • Defense against large language model attacks (LLM’s).
  • Government-compliant content filtering.
  • Centralized management systems for observing employee AI access and use.
  • Real-time inspections to prevent data breaches and exploits.

“Great advancements in technology always come with new cyber risk,” Chen said. “Like cloud and every other leap in technology we have secured, the promise of the AI era is only powerful if protected. Our latest platform updates deliver new efficiencies to security teams and provide critical guidelines for AI use.”

Trend Micro’s new platform is an important first step in cybersecurity, as it’s the first company to focus on making AI usage safer for users across the board.

“Security vendors like Trend Micro who have both a long history and experience working with AI, and a proven record of delivering solutions for monitoring and implementing network, web, and cloud controls are well positioned to help security teams enable the rapid adoption of AI to accelerate business objectives in a secure manner,” said Principal Analyst, Dave Gruber.
