We live in a world that is producing data at a blistering pace. A World Economic Forum study estimates that by 2025, we will be creating 463 exabytes of data every day. For context, that’s 463, followed by 18 zeros! Or as the authors put it, “Forty times more bytes than there are stars in the observable universe.”

Of course, what isn’t likely to happen in that same time frame is that humans will suddenly evolve to consider all of that available data, factor probabilities and make the right risk management decisions. That is not to suggest that humans are becoming expendable. Far from it, we have highly tuned abilities to recognize patterns, understand abstract relationships and generalize. For instance, we don’t need hundreds or thousands of training samples to know that a user being targeted by a phishing attempt is the CFO of the organization. We recognize the name right away and our instincts take over to drive remediation next steps.

The task at hand is to surface just the right information to enable operators to make optimal decisions that ultimately lead to positive business outcomes. This is where the network comes in—it is foundational to producing and consuming all of that data, and intelligent network infrastructure provides the goldilocks balance of “just right” information.

Download this whitepaper to get an in-depth understanding of what it takes to deliver on this promise, incl.:

  • The challenges of applying traditional AI approaches to network data
  • How to optimize workflows, speed mean time to resolution, and improve security outcomes
  • The impact on user quality of experience
