The Critical Aspects of Applying AI to Your Networks
Bob Friday of Juniper Networks takes a deep dive into the critical ins and outs of applying AI to your networks.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is everywhere these days. You can’t skim LinkedIn or read an industry trade publication without being bombarded with news about the latest company to wrap itself in an AI blanket. We are reaching the point where organizations need to learn how to cut through the noise and understand what the technology truly is about– and whether it can be applied to their critical business processes in a way that makes a difference, increasing efficiency and productivity. The networking industry is no different– there has been a great deal of buzz. Expanded use of AI technology in the future will likely change how networks are set up, managed, and optimized. In fact, approaches such as AIOps are already moving networking from a paradigm of managing network elements to one of managing the user experience. But for companies looking to incorporate AI into their current operations, the main questions remain: where should it be applied, and can it truly help me?
Modern Threat Detection: It All Comes Down to Visibility
Matt Wilson of Netography examines how increased visibility should be the focal point in improving NDR solutions and threat detection.
As threat actors continue to target networks at their weakest points, the cost of resulting data breaches can be crippling, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We can do better, saving money and time, by understanding where legacy solutions could use additional support, and where they often leave organizations vulnerable. This article looks at what shifts need to be made to provide today’s necessary network visibility level to ensure organizations receive proper threat detection.
