The future of work remains unpredictable and uncertain. More than ever before, business leaders need to remain confident that their operations can continue securely in the face of global or even regional crises, and while sections of the economy are slowly re-opening, cyber-attackers are ramping up their campaigns.
As businesses look set to rely on cloud and SaaS tools for the long term, our digital environments are going to be more dynamic than ever. Yet organizations are finding themselves undergoing a delicate balancing act—each new work practice and technology that is introduced also brings unforeseen risk. Static, legacy approaches have become redundant, both unintelligent and ill-equipped to adapt.
Organizations must rethink their approach to security, and rely on new technologies like AI to achieve much-needed adaptability and resilience. Darktrace is the world leader in cyber AI technology, and leverages unsupervised machine learning to seamlessly adapt and integrate into changing environments, and to detect and respond to attacks in the earliest moments.
In the face of an uncertain present and future, Cyber AI enables businesses to continue communicating, operating, and innovating.
