Automation advances cybersecurity in AI race but challenges remain
In its latest report that investigates the role of automation in cybersecurity settings, ABI Research finds that there are seven vital automated IT security applications that will function as the stepping stones necessary to advance cybersecurity in the new world of artificial intelligence. The automated processes will aid critical IT security functions that range from assisting security personnel to streamlining security alerts to system optimization.
“While it will most likely be a valuable addition to IT teams’ arsenals, automation can be a double-edged sword if not handled properly,” says Dimitrios Pavlakis, Industry Analyst at ABI Research. “We expect automated processes to first address key issues like TLS/SSL, or Transport Layer Security/Secure Socket Layer, certification and privilege management prior to tackling critical functions like incident response.”
