We have seen from the previous two posts on cybersecurity and AI the importance of using advanced technology to stay ahead of cybercriminals. But far too often, a threat transcends the capacity of one particular box, especially when it has been deployed in a discrete place in the network and has been functionally isolated from the rest of the network and other security devices.
