AI’s Biggest Impact in the Data Center is Cybersecurity

Self-driving cars may be getting all the attention, but the big impact of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the enterprise is in cybersecurity, and especially in securing data center networks. And given all the threats data centers are facing this year the help is much needed.

According to a recent survey of 400 security professionals by Wakefield Research and Webroot, a cybersecurity vendor, 99 percent of US respondents believe AI overall could improve their organizations’ cybersecurity. And 87 percent report their organizations are already using AI as part of their cybersecurity strategy. In fact, 74 percent of cybersecurity professionals in the US believe that within the next three years their companies will not be able to safeguard digital assets without AI.

AI and machine learning are being used to spot never before seen malware, recognize suspicious user behaviors, and detect anomalous network traffic.
