One of the most influential developments in technology is the recent spike in popularity for Large Language Models like ChatGPT and other forms of Artificial Intelligence, but what is the role of AI in network security?.

Why is Network Security Important?

Before answering how AI can help keep your network secure, we need to first understand why this is important. Network security, at its core, involves protecting the integrity of a computer network and the data within it. This protection is against cyber threats such as breaches and intrusions. It’s not just about ensuring your network is reliable and accessible; it’s about making sure your network is as secure as possible whilst still meeting the requirements of your business or organisation​.


How AI is Used for Networking and Security

AI, particularly when paired with machine learning, provides a robust approach to network security. It assists in identifying hardware issues before they become significant problems. This early detection is crucial in an environment where hardware is almost always the point of failure in network security and by the time you identify the issue, it’s often too late. AI can pinpoint these exact issues before you would normally even know there is one, so tools like Fortinet can secure your organisation against a constant cybersecurity threat.

What is the Role of AI and Machine Learning in Network Security Automation

AI and machine learning are at the heart of network security automation. They enable businesses to adapt to the rapidly changing security landscape and efficiently respond to emerging threats. Automation driven by AI and machine learning leads to more simplified overall network deployments and a subsequent reduction in the number of IT issues. Furthermore, these technologies provide real-time detection and response capabilities to the latest security threats. AI and machine learning are, therefore, critical components in maintaining a secure business environment​ going forward.
