Extreme Networks Moves Into Edge Device Security With Defender fo

#artificialintelligence

Extreme Networks is moving into IoT security with its new product, Defender for IoT, that secures wired and wireless devices. Gartner estimates that 20.4 billion connected things will be in use by organizations worldwide by 2020. And IoT device attacks are on the rise. The product targets smart cities, industrial IoT, and connected health care. It secures devices that don't have embedded security, said Abby Strong, vice president of product marketing at Extreme Networks.


Extreme Network bows artificial intelligence and machine learning-based cloud management application

#artificialintelligence

Using tools from its Aerohive Networks acquisition earlier this year, Extreme Networks announced a new cloud management application that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning. Extreme's ExtremeCloud IQ provides enterprises with visibility into their networks as well as automation. It also provides insights by ingesting more than 3 billion instrumented messages and events per day across its global footprint of regional cloud instances. ExtremeCloud IQ is built on an architecture that's supported by microservices, third-generation cloud technology and the Aerohive Networks tools. ExtremeCloud IQ provides a unified management platform for wireless access points, switches, routers, and security/NAC, enabling onboarding, configuration, monitoring, troubleshooting, reporting, and other capabilities for cloud-centric enterprise networks.


Extreme Networks Makes Investment to Develop Next-Generation Cloud and AI-based Network Solutions in Ireland

#artificialintelligence

READING, England and SHANNON, Ireland, September 16, 2019 ― Extreme Networks, a software-driven networking company, announced today that it will invest 3 million Euro to expand its R&D program in Shannon, Ireland. The investment will create 20 new jobs in engineering, data science, and software engineering over the next two years, with the Irish government providing additional funding in the form of research, development, and innovation grant worth over 500,000 Euro. The newly established R&D team will focus on developing a next-generation cloud portal for network applications and services, as well as a state-of-the-art AI-based security system for the Internet of Things (IoT). The Shannon R&D base is part of a long-term strategy by Extreme Networks that will result in the creation of a substantial number of highly specialized engineering jobs in the region over the next five years. With the network industry currently experiencing clear shifts in spending patterns as enterprises focus more on applications and security over physical hardware, this support for the program in Shannon is the next step in building a new'Cloud and AI Centre of Excellence' for Extreme Networks.


Edgewise Networks' Simple Microsegmentation Strategy Takes On VMw

#artificialintelligence

Edgewise Networks, a security startup that's taking on industry giants VMware and Cisco with its microsegmentation technology, has a simple plan to win market share. "As far as the microsegmentation space is concerned, it has been viewed as very complex," said CEO Peter Smith. "Really, the drive behind our pursuit of these patents is bringing extreme simplicity, extreme automation to the problem of microsegmentation and zero trust." Microsegmentation enables fine-grained security policies to be assigned to cloud and data center applications. The approach improves network security by integrating it directly into a virtualized workload without requiring a hardware-based firewall.
