Hsinchu, Taiwan - Apr 7, 2024 - Lionic, a pioneer in cybersecurity, has announced the creation and integration of an advanced AI(Artificial Intelligence) AV(Anti-Virus) Engine into its anti-virus query cloud. This innovative technology is designed to tackle the growing issue of zero-day viruses, providing enhanced protection for users.

Traditionally, AV companies collect suspicious files and then human security analysts manually examined to determine if they are malware. However, the high volume of suspicious files often exceeds the capacity of human experts, leading to the adoption of sandboxes. Also, files from trusted virus exchange sources are automatically flagged as viruses. The remaining files are manually reviewed.

Most Anti-Virus engines depend on recognizing features from previously identified viruses to detect threats, for example, specific byte sequence, SHA1 hash or something similar. However, the above methods can fail when encountering zero-day viruses, which are new and unknown, causing them to pass these threats undetected. To address this issue, Lionic has developed an AI Anti-Virus Engine that simulates human security analysts for detecting zero-day viruses.

The development of Lionic AI AV engine involved extracting crucial attributes from executable files and training a machine learning model using a comprehensive dataset of both malicious and clean files. Lionic’s vast repository of virus and clean files was used to train the machine learning model, resulting in a highly effective AI Anti-Virus Engine with a practical and accurate detection rate while minimizing false positives.

Eric Lu, CEO of Lionic, stated, “Our AI Anti-Virus Engine is a testament to our commitment to staying ahead of the evolving cyber threat landscape. We understand the critical nature of Zero-Day threats and have tailored our solution to provide our customers with the most effective defense possible.”

The integration of AI technology into Lionic’s anti-virus query cloud allows for real-time detection and response to zero-day viruses, offering a significant advantage in the ongoing battle against sophisticated malware. As a result, Lionic’s customers can now enjoy unparalleled security, ensuring their systems remain protected in an increasingly digital world.
