The EdgeLabs Sensor is a proprietary network telemetry and monitoring agent that continuously analyzes and models network behavior of a particular Edge node. It holds an AI-powered model stack that continuously checks inbound and outbound connectivity via pre-trained AI models.
With EdgeLabs Sensor, infrastructure teams can locate hidden network threats and zero-day attacks that might cause business disruption. The sensor models normal and abnormal connectivity states and immediately reports them to Operation teams with cause and recommends remediation actions for the incidents.
During the first deployment, the EdgeLabs Sensor runs a configurable set of security checks and topology research to collect the initial context of the environment. Collected data is then analyzed by the EdgeLabs AI Platform™ (ELAP).
ELAP provides a set of AI-based models which are pre-trained in the existing knowledge base of threat patterns and attack signatures; this pre-training is always done centrally on ELAP. By running these collections from a fleet of well-distributed/placed EdgeLabs Sensors, the AI Security team can dramatically improve the precision with which they instrument, monitor, and maintain their application delivery infrastructure.
