Ask Roman: A new AI Purpose-Built for Product Security

Ask Roman: A New AI Purpose-Built for Product Security

Last year’s exciting wave of new AI technologies has proven to be an incredible tool for cybersecurity teams, however, the lack of a product security focus towards AI has left medical, automotive, and industrial manufacturers in the dark– until now.

Addressing this gap, we’re announcing a product security-focused AI assistant, designed to help teams rapidly pull data, cut time spent searching across devices, and manage threats that are relative to their product’s specific system. 

Today, we are already seeing adversaries who are adeptly utilizing AI to scrutinize connected products, unearthing vulnerabilities for potentially substantial exploits. In contrast, product security teams grapple with the daunting task of vigilantly safeguarding devices. This encompasses the relentless identification of vulnerabilities, neutralization of threats, and adaptation to the perpetually shifting cyber threat landscape.

Named after our beloved VP of Research, Roman Kelser, ‘Ask Roman’ gives teams the ability to converse with their own personal product security researcher, right inside the Product Security Platform as a standard feature for all users.

How Ask Roman AI makes product security more efficient

One of the most daunting tasks for product security teams is pinpointing only the vulnerabilities that affect their product. Leveraging Cybellum’s vulnerability management engine, Ask Roman allows teams to quickly filter out irrelevant vulnerabilities, and pinpoint the ones that could actually have an impact on your products. Not only that, but you can also continue the conversation, asking the AI to provide more details about that specific query.

An example of how this can be helpful is in preparation for the next ‘Big One’, similar to Log4J. Then, few companies had a streamlined process for rapidly identifying exactly which components were impacted by this vulnerability. To avert such predicaments in the future the Ask Roman AI can provide information for you much quicker without needing to conduct manual queries.

 

Below are a few of what you can request from Ask Roman:

Identify Product Vulnerabilities

One of the most daunting tasks for product security teams is pinpointing only the vulnerabilities that affect their product. Leveraging Cybellum’s vulnerability management engine, Ask Roman allows teams to quickly filter out irrelevant vulnerabilities, and pinpoint the ones that could actually have an impact on your products. Not only that, but you can also continue the conversation, asking the AI to provide more details about that specific query.

Prompt: Give me a list of Linux CVEs affecting my products

Ask_Roman: Sure, here’s a list of Linux vulnerabilities that affect your specific products:
CVE 2022-33467
CVE 2021-32882
CVE 2023-22496

What would you like to do next?
Provide more details for each CVE>
Search for other vulnerabilities>

Get mitigation recommendations

Another struggle is finding the right mitigation strategy out of countless possible options. Ask Roman helps with that too, by providing detailed mitigation recommendations and helping you choose the right one. Then, it even allows you to open a ticket to developers.

Search for vulnerable products in post-production

Another useful use case is identifying new vulnerabilities in post-production/postmarket products by quickly asking Roman to search whether a new vulnerability exists in a deployed product. This is extremely helpful when needing to identify a vulnerability across all products, such as was needed with Log4J back in 2021 and is still necessary today.

Prompt: Which of my products are affected by Log4j?

Ask_Roman: here’s the list:
V900
BA 77
EComp 82

What would you like me to do next?
Start a PSIRT investigation>

Why AI is Indispensable in Securing Medical Devices, Vehicles, and Industrial Manufacturing Equipment

Securing Medical Devices with AI

Medical devices are mission-critical and often operate in facilities or households with numerous devices developed with varying levels of security. AI assists in monitoring and anomaly detection, which is crucial in preempting cyber attacks that could jeopardize patient safety. AI-driven analytics can swiftly identify and mitigate threats, ensuring the reliability and integrity of these life-saving technologies.

Enhancing Vehicle Security Through AI

Modern vehicles, brimming with connected technologies, are susceptible to cyber threats. AI plays an essential role in safeguarding these systems. It can predict and prevent potential exploits in-vehicle software, ensuring passenger safety and protecting sensitive data. Through continuous learning, AI can adapt to evolving threats.

AI in Industrial Manufacturing Security

Industrial manufacturing equipment, along with critical infrastructure ICS’ and devices, require robust defense mechanisms against cyber intrusions that can have a direct impact on large populations. AI aids in monitoring devices from development through the full product lifecycle, identifying vulnerabilities through the end of life.

The Imperative of AI in Product Security

The integration of AI in product security is not just a technological advancement but a strategic imperative. In securing medical devices, vehicles, and industrial manufacturing equipment, AI brings a proactive, adaptive, and intelligent approach to cybersecurity– allowing to reduce workloads by doing away with manual data extraction. 

It transcends traditional reactive methods, offering an anticipatory stance against cyber threats. This proactive approach is vital in a landscape where cyber adversaries are constantly evolving their tactics. By leveraging AI, product security teams are not just defending against known threats but are also preparing for the unknown, ensuring the safety and reliability of critical systems in our increasingly connected world.

For this reason, ‚Ask Roman‘ is not just a feature; it represents our dedication to empowering product security teams with the tools needed to navigate and triumph in the challenging cyber threat landscape. 

The era of AI in cybersecurity is not a distant future but a present reality. By enabling product security teams with advanced AI tools like ‚Ask Roman‘, we are not just equipping them with sophisticated technology; we are reshaping the way cybersecurity is approached.
