Sure Sense uses AI to prevent malware and block it in close proximity, including ransomware and formerly unknown malware.

HP announced Tuesday a lot of new PC updates and features and the formal release of the new company HP Sure Sense which uses AI in the near-real-time malware prevention and blocks, including ransomware and unknown malware.

HP points out that Sure Sense differs from other market offers because it uses a deep understanding of what malware is like and reduces threats in seconds.

Terabytes of data are reduced by the deep learning engine to a lightweight agent, installed directly on notebooks, which scans malware with minimum impact on the computers. The Sure Sense HP said that it is 99 percent more effective than yesterday to capture malware, including malware that needs minimum updates. It also has behavior detection in the system, which means it searches for ransomware and blocks it if something happens with fast file encryption. According to HP, the platform is also offline.

“One of Sure Sens’ benefits is that, when compared to previous AI solutions for antimalware, we have seen a very, very small rate of false positives,” says Alex Thatcher, director of the new products for HP. “We have white listing in there but you will need it much less than you feel with that solution.”

HP made some hardware announcements on Tuesday as well. The enterprise has released four new PCs in the 800 series HP EliteBook. The new models of Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6 are available with Intel Core vPro processors for 8th generation. The machines also offer a 4G LTE modem for up to 1 Gbps download speed.

HP has also added a shutter for privacy to the laptop cameras. The 13.3-inch Elitebook 830 G6 from HP also reported that the 830 G6 can now operate for up to 18 hours at one charge. The larger EliteBook 840 G6 14-inch models and 850-inch G6 15-inch models support 4K LED views.

While the new generation Intel Core vPro processors and the optional AMD Radeone 4GB graphics card have been installed, the H PC also updated its ZBook mobile workstation with 50% greater graphic power. HP said EliteBooking 800 G6, EliteBook x360 830 G6, and Sure Sense will be built in by HP ZBook 14u/15u.
