Intelligence and insight that transforms capabilities into results
Is your organization underspending on information security? If you’re like most, spending on information security lags far behind other priorities. Only during the past few years has spend on information security started to increase, but it still lags behind. In this Research Report, Wellington summarizes findings from research conducted with thousands of organizations to highlight
There was some controversy emerging from the most recent RSA conference when the CTO of RSA - Zulfikar Ramzan - was quoted saying "I think it (the technology of machine learning) moves the needle," he said on Wednesday. "The real open question to me is how much has that needle actually moved in practice?" What he did not address is the intelligence that is going to change the entire industry.
This is probably an understandable reaction to the state of the market for security products and services today with all manner of technology product vendors and service providers claiming their "solution" uses the latest ... machine learning, cognitive (my favorite marketing buzzword term) and artificial intelligence ... take your pick, powered security Swiss Army knife. Moreover, this has been going on now for a few years as new end-point detection and recovery systems have hit the market powered by AI, and all manner of other security tools.
The point Zulfikar is/was trying to make is that it is hard trying - for some- to decrypt marketing buzz from reality when it comes to the latest AI-powered security tools. But I think this attitude is condescending. Most IT security buyers that have been around more than a few years have specially equipped radar for BS and can smell it in the air. What did not get covered at the RSA conference is the huge impact AI is going to have on the entire industry, impacts that will not be too far in the future.
