The need for SASE is growing as more and more organizations realize that the majority of their workforce will remain remote and there is no longer a "safe network" within a building but rather "all networks become an external network," said David Batty, vice president of solution architecture and technology at iboss.

This makes it crucial to ensure that users have access only to the appropriate resources and that each individual request is being analyzed, he said, including detecting the inappropriate use of AI tools by users.

Batty said iboss is using AI with its SASE services to look for unique traffic across customers' networks and respond a lot faster to incidents. "We're in the unique position of inspecting all traffic coming from the user. We not only detect the AI services they're using but also control it if inappropriate data is being shared with an AI service. We can apply data loss prevention services including exact data match."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2024, Batty also discussed:

  • How the SASE market is evolving;
  • How SASE can improve productivity for organizations;
  • How AI and machine learning are affecting cloud security architectures.

Batty has more than 20 years of experience in network, security engineering and architecture. His expertise extends to both customer and vendor settings supporting cybersecurity.
