Machine Learning and Anti-Malware

It has been an exciting month at CrowdStrike, especially for the Data Science Team as we released our anti-malware engine to Google’s VirusTotal service last week—the first fully machine learning-based engine to be integrated on VirusTotal. The engine shared is part of the larger Falcon Host product; the main intent is to provide a pre-execution static analysis capability.

I’ve posted some technical details to the CrowdStrike blog, and CrowdStrike’s CEO George Kurtz shared his thoughts on this milestone as well.
