New digital initiatives, work-from-anywhere policies and the demand for better user experiences have your clients’ NOC teams struggling to manage ever-expanding, increasingly complex networks. Offering solutions that combine AIOps with cybersecurity mesh architecture can provide them with a cohesive and comprehensive view of their applications and multicloud environments.
Combining a cybersecurity mesh architecture with AIOps can provide a level of automated detection and response that can’t be achieved in traditionally siloed environments. Using this approach, companies can maximize network visibility, improve response times to anomalies and reduce ticket volume by proactively remediating network issues.
5 Questions to Ask When Evaluating AIOps
While incorporating AIOps into your clients’ security may seem like the “silver bullet” to help them manage their networks, it’s important to carefully evaluate these solutions. The following questions can help you identify the right solution for your client’s unique needs.
1. What kind of data sources does the AIOps solution support?
2. How does the solution detect anomalies and potential security threats?
3. What kind of automation and workflow capabilities does the solution offer?
4. How does the solution integrate with existing IT systems and tools?
5. What kind of training and support does the vendor offer?
3 Reasons to Consider Fortinet AIOps
FortiAIOps is an artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) solution for Fortinet networks that quickly collects and leverages data to identify network anomalies.
1. Unlike many vendors, Fortinet uniquely converges networking and security across the LAN, wireless LAN and wide-area network components, such as SD-WAN and WAN gateway devices, and ties everything together with a single operating system and management console. This convergence decreases the WAN bandwidth consumption for AIOps data.
2. Every alert in FortiAIOps includes a recommended resolution. It can help predict failures based on trained ML models and detect probable root causes by periodically reviewing configurations.
3. FortiGuard Labs can analyze more than 100 billion security events per day from more than 6 million devices. This data then informs the more than 1 billion daily security updates to Fortinet’s products, which work to identify zero-day threats and malware, reduce the number of false alarms, detect insider threats and enable both automated and human cybersecurity responses.
