iViz Tech Solutions : AI based Hacking, ON Demand

Quite an interesting  concept of using AI to simulate Human hacker(s) to attack a system to detect vulnerabilities and fix them.

As per my understanding, its almost an impossible task to emulate even a lay man's brain. Then is it possible at all to think like a hacker?

Hackers hired to help companies discover internal security threats may soon be out of a job.

Just ask IDG Ventures India, which pumped $2.5 million into iViz Tech Solutions, an Indian startup that promises on-demand software that does penetration testing, or simulated attacks on systems, to detect network weaknesses much in the way a hacker would.

Incubated in one of India's top technology institutes in 2005, iViz develops artificial intelligence-based products that simulate an intelligent hacker to detect the security flaws in a system or network and suggest corresponding remedies.

Company co-founders Bikash Barai and Nilanjan De, graduates of the Indian Institute of Technology–Kharagpur, say that iViz uses an innovative technology that determines the threat in a network, finds the complex multi-stage attack paths that cannot be detected by normal tools and comes up with solutions for such attacks.
