AI sweetspot: lots of date
Remember that AI thrives on large datasets against which the AI can be trained - or can self-organize - to detect patterns and draw correct inferences. This implies that the most natural fit for AI in cybersecurity is in perimeter defense - WAFs, NGWAFs, IDSs, etc - which are constantly bombarded with traffic from both the 'good guys' and the 'bad guys'. Using AI to help distinguish which is which - and to present humans with business decision assistance - is probably the lowest hanging fruit for AI in our business.

AI needs network and detailed end point dat
AI will always work if given the raw network and endpoint data that the process needs.  Without data, AI can not work.

99% of organizations have no idea of what's on their network, that includes users, endpoints, software and hardware and end point behavior.

what do you expect AI to analyze, you might as well use a crystal ball.  That works without data and your results will be better.
