Leveraging AIOps to Boost Cyber Security Management

The amount of data generated within the network is outstripping the ability of a team of humans to deal with it. IT Operations teams need to harness data and use it to their advantage to get ahead.
Using the Cloud, teams can begin to capture data. And using AIOps, they can derive machine-learned insights and recommendations to streamline decision-making. The journey to an effective AIOps-powered organization begins with a streamlined Cloud-managed network management platform. ExtremeCloud IQ provides IT teams with automated operations tools at their disposal to build better networks with CoPilot, Site Engine, IQ Controller, Intuitive Insights, and more.
