Microsoft has announced plans to release its Security Risk Detection product, formerly known as Project Springfield, later this summer. The cloud computing-based service uses artificial intelligence (AI) and fuzzing techniques to identify zero-day security vulnerabilities.
"The Microsoft Security Risk Detection service is unique in that it uses artificial intelligence to ask a series of 'what if' questions to try to root out what might trigger a crash and signal a security concern," the company said. "Each time it runs, it hones in on the areas that are most critical, looking for vulnerabilities that other tools that don’t take an intelligent approach might miss."
