Extreme Networks, has announced two new solution enhancements named Extreme Elements and ExtremeAI Security.
The new solutions aim to enable businesses across the world to fully leverage digital transformation initiatives across their networks - increasing efficiency and boosting productivity.
Extreme Elements is a combination of software, hardware and services that can be mixed and matched to create customised solutions for enterprises in every industry to elevate end-user experiences.
Comprised of components of Extreme’s Smart OmniEdge™, Automated Campus™ and Agile Data Center™ solutions and underpinned by human and machine intelligence, the Elements solution gives customers the building blocks they need to create autonomous networks capable of learning and self-correcting, and ultimately an autonomous enterprise where architecture, automation, and human intelligence operate in harmony.
Extreme Networks Executive Vice President, Products Nabil Bukhari said: “For too long, networking vendors have allowed infrastructure to become a roadblock to customers’ most innovative ambitions.
"We’re introducing a powerful, self-driving network, fueled by Extreme Elements, that will allow enterprises to finally pursue the bold transformation projects they always wanted to. Leveraging our deep expertise in advanced, agile networking, and combining it with artificial intelligence and automation, we’re giving our customers the tools they need to deliver extraordinary human experiences. It’s a new era of networking.”
ExtremeAI™ Security is a new IoT security and automated threat mitigation product for the digital enterprise that leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to identify, remediate and contain advanced threats against IoT devices.
It delivers deep visibility and detection of malicious traffic, and real-time monitoring of IoT devices for behavioural anomalies. Through fully-automated remediation of suspicious devices and traffic, ExtremeAI Security ensures threats are contained without manual intervention, preventing them from moving across the network. Extreme’s powerful traffic analytics and visibility capabilities are embedded in this new security solution, combining the best of enterprise networking with innovations in machine learning to identify and remediate threats.
Extreme Networks VP EMEA John Morrison said: “In recent years and, especially after GDPR, most companies in the UK and EMEA region have upgraded their security measures. Nevertheless, a significant number of organisations are still neglecting their security vulnerabilities when it comes to their IoT devices and networks.
“Considering that organisations nowadays have thousands of IoT devices and need highly complex networks to support their day-to-day activity and help achieve successful digital transformation, innovative and smart solutions that protect businesses against potential attacks on their networks are crucial. That’s why we have created ExtremeAI which aims to counteract any potential threats to the network and prevent them from spreading to essential business functions.”
