Cybersecurity tools used in data centers are getting smarter as vendors roll out more machine learning capabilities.
With the new tools, security teams can analyze millions of threats in real time, he said, and rank them based on hundreds of factors to understand their true risk level.
Data centers also have an increasing amount of automation available in the cybersecurity tools that they use, also frequently powered by AI and machine learning.
According to a survey conducted last fall by the Enterprise Security Group, automation of security analytics and operations is a priority for two thirds of organizations, and 39 percent have already deployed machine learning technologies to help address their cybersecurity needs.
Various AI-related technologies, including natural language processing, automated agents, and machine learning, are starting to come together to make security tools easier to use.
