QuickHeal - Malware Prediction using Machine Learning

We helped QuickHeal to build a Machine Learning powered Auto-Malware detector that scans tens of thousands of files/hour to identify and classify threats automatically.

It Saved them hundreds of man-hours per day with improved accuracy of malware detection by more than 70%.

The Challenges

The key challenges were -

  • To gain competitive advantage by accurate prediction of malicious / non-malicious files using Machine learning
  • Model size must be small
  • Desired False Positive Rate (FPR) < 0.5 %
  • Training on massive data (Tens of millions of data points)

Coreview’s Solution

CoreView team worked in an agile manner to deliver a state-of-the-art system.

  • Advanced ML classification algorithm to predict malicious files
