In the world of cloud computing and cybersecurity, change is the only constant. But how do we steer our way through this rapidly evolving landscape, and what role does data play in shaping our path forward?

This week, our CEO Jay Parikh joined SiliconANGLE Media’s Co-founders and Co-CEOs John Furrier and Dave Vellante for Supercloud 3, where they discussed how to successfully navigate the constant chaos of the cloud and the role of AI today. 

Here are three key takeaways from the conversation: 

Use data to ride the wave of innovation

The cloud is an environment of constant chaos. With infrastructural changes, evolving applications, and new capabilities being launched regularly, the cloud makes innovation easier than ever, but this constant evolution creates additional layers of complexity for risk models within organizations.

How can security and development teams keep up? Jay explained that it all comes down to processing vast amounts of data and automating processes. By collecting and interpreting data from various sources — be it the cloud provider, third-party data, or real-time data — we can provide the right information to the right people, driving productive and fast-paced outcomes.


We have always felt that the only way you can keep up with — and potentially stay ahead of — these security risks is through collecting and processing a lot of data.

Understand the dual role of AI

Jay, John, and Dave also discussed the pivotal role of AI in enhancing security measures. From understanding normal behavioral patterns to detecting slight anomalies in operational activities, AI can help identify potential security threats that might otherwise go unnoticed. However, it’s important to be aware that the double-edged sword of AI is that attackers can use it to strategize more extensive and sophisticated attacks.

Operationalize data for transformative results

Leverage the transformative power of operationalizing data at scale. As more data is collected and analyzed, developers can leverage it to build better applications, discover and explore new features, and improve the customer experience. For instance, AI-powered language models like ChatGPT can emulate human interaction, indicating the sophistication achievable through data and advanced AI models.
