"Enterprises are data-rich and insight-poor as it relates to security for multi-cloud, hybrid infrastructure. Machine learning approaches are relatively well-established for email security, data loss prevention and malware detection. But for infrastructure security, ML is largely untapped, yet it can unlock the data jam and delight SecOps users, if applied correctly.
