Overly Quoted in CIO.com About How AI, Automation Have Become Critical Tools for Cybersecurity

Partner Mike Overly was quoted in the CIO.com article, “AI, automation emerge as critical tools for cybersecurity” about how, as AI and automation adoption rates are increasing, cybersecurity has emerged as an ideal use case for these technologies.

Digital business has opened a score of new risks and vulnerabilities that, combined with a security skills gap, is weighing down security teams. As a result, more organizations are looking at AI and machine learning as a way to relieve some of the burden on security teams by sifting through high volumes of security data and automating routine tasks. “The hope is that these systems will minimize false alarms and insubstantial issues (e.g., port scanning or pings), leaving a much smaller set of ‘real’ threats to review and address,” Overly said.
