Fortinet Forges FortiAI Security Service

Article | February 25, 2020

Fortinet lent overworked and understaffed security operations (SecOPs) teams a helping hand today with the launch of FortiAI, an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered threat detection and remediation service.“FortiAI is designed to optimize security operations, enhance the productivity of the security analysts, and to reduce the false-positive rate,” said Jonathan Nguyen-Duy, VP of Fortinet’s global field CISO team, in an interview with SDxCentral.To do this, FortiAI utilizes a “self-learning” deep neural network (DNN) to automate rote security tasks to accelerate threat detection and remediation.“The practical reality is the complexity is expanding beyond the ability of conventional security operations to keep pace and so artificial intelligence and its subsets in machine learning and deep learning are all designed to automate those more mundane tasks,” Nguyen-Duy explained.

Benefits of Kubernetes on bare metal cloud infrastructure

Article | March 3, 2020

Let’s start with a brief recap on cloud native and CNCF – Cloud Native Computing Foundation. With the introduction of 5G, new use cases drive the need for designing applications based on containers and service-based architecture to address some technology gaps associated with virtualization. The most important technology gaps involve smoother software upgrades, automation and the realization of a CI/CD software pipeline to end customers. In the center of cloud native technology development is CNCF, an open source community driving the adoption of the cloud native paradigm across industries by fostering collaboration between the industry’s top developers, end users and vendors. Since CNCF is such a huge community, the focus on the telecom industry has been limited. But now with the formation of the Telecom User Group (A Special Interest Group) within CNCF, Ericsson has taken a leading role in telecom related discussions in the community.

Successful Cloud Migrations Made Easy

Article | March 16, 2020

TransAlta, an energy producer with gas, hydro, solar, wind, and coal facilities across the U.S., Canada, and Australia, leveraged data virtualization with the company’s cloud strategy. A few years ago, TransAlta decided to move 100% of its data to the cloud. The company centralized its data to reduce infrastructure, simplify data access, and scale storage. The biggest hidden challenge many companies face when trying to be completely cloud based is connecting the applications they accumulate over time. Whether they were developed and configured for on-premises environments, have specific security requirements, or are too old and complex to connect to data in the cloud, this presents a challenge.

Essential things to know about container networking

Article | March 8, 2020

Containers have emerged over the past several years to provide an efficient method of storing and delivering applications reliably across different computing environments. By containerizing an application platform and its dependencies, differences in OS distributions and underlying infrastructures are abstracted away. Networking has emerged as a critical element within the container ecosystem, providing connectivity between containers running on the same host as well as on different hosts, says Michael Letourneau, an IT architect at Liberty Mutual Insurance. "Putting an application into a container automatically drives the need for network connectivity for that container," says Letourneau, whose primary focus is on building and operating Liberty Mutual's container platform.
