Fortinet rolls out AI security solution FortiAI

California-based network security solution provider Fortinet has launched an artificial intelligence (AI) security solution FortiAI. It is an on-premises appliance, which means that the software is installed and run on computers on the premises of the person or organisation using the software, rather than at a remote facility such as a server farm or cloud. FortiAI leverages self-learning deep neural networks to speed up threat remediation and handle manual security analyst tasks. The company also unveiled another tool, FortiAI’s Virtual Security Analyst, an AI-powered sub-second Threat investigation tool. It embeds cybersecurity AI directly into an organisation’s network to detect threats in less than a second.
