In recent years, cybersecurity providers have been widely using Artificial Intelligence (AI) in their cybersecurity offerings. One of the latest advancements in this field is the integration of ChatGPT, a large conversational language model, into cybersecurity products.
ChatGPT, based on the GPT-3.5 architecture and trained by OpenAI, is a versatile language model that can understand natural language and generate contextual responses. With its advanced capabilities, ChatGPT has the potential to revolutionize the way cybersecurity products are designed and developed.
Some cybersecurity companies, including Orca, Armo, LogPoint, and AlertEnterprise, have announced the integration with ChatGPT to detect and prevent cyber threats. The companies are integrating with ChatGPT due to different reasons. Orca has integrated ChatGPT to enhance its cloud security remediation steps, Armo is using the bot to build security policies based on Open Policy Agent (OPA), and LogPoint is using it to investigate the potential use of SOAR playbooks with ChatGPT in cybersecurity. Additionally, AlertEnterprise has launched a chatbot powered by ChatGPT to provide quick information regarding physical access, identity access management, visitor management, door reader analytics, and security and safety reporting.
One of the main advantages of using ChatGPT in cybersecurity is its ability to understand the context of a message. This allows organizations to differentiate between legitimate and malicious content, making it more accurate in detecting threats. ChatGPT is also able to learn from its pattern & experiences and improve its performance over time. With frequent usage, it becomes more effective in detecting threats and preventing cyber-attacks.
However, ChatGPT’s capabilities have also been tested and found to be unreliable for code analysis by NCC Group, although some researchers have found practical use cases for it, such as HackerSploit, who used it for identifying software vulnerabilities and penetration testing. Overall, ChatGPT has the potential to bring benefits to defenders and attackers alike, and the cybersecurity industry is increasingly integrating the AI into its products and services.
Overall, the integration of ChatGPT into cybersecurity products is an exciting development in the field of AI and cybersecurity. As the industry continues to test and refine its capabilities, we can expect to see more advanced and effective cybersecurity products in the future.
