Trend Micro Predictive Machine Learning (PML) uses advanced machine learning technology to correlate threat information and perform in-depth file analysis to detect emerging unknown security risks through digital fingerprinting, application programming interface (API) mapping, and other file features.
In File Security SDK, when PML detects an unknown or low-prevalence file, the security agent scans the file using the Advanced Threat Scan Engine (ATSE) to extract file features and sends the report to the PML engine hosted on the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network (SPN). Through use of malware modeling, PML compares the sample to the malware model, assigns a probability score, and determines the probable malware type that the file contains.
