Microsoft is bringing AI to security, and suddenly Skynet doesn’t seem so farfetched.
In a blog post, the company announced Security Copilot, a new tool that is purpose-built for security professionals. Microsoft says that this is the “first security product to enable defenders to move at the speed and scale of AI. Security Copilot combines this advanced large language model (LLM) with a security-specific model from Microsoft.”
Security Copilot is built using OpenAI’s GPT-4 generative AI, just like the Microsoft 365 Copilot that the company announced a couple of weeks ago when it revealed its new AI tools for Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and the rest of its productivity suite. This new copilot, however, uses a “security-specific model to deploy skills and queries that maximize the value of the latest large language model capabilities.”
