How to Tackle Digital Disruption in Your Industry - Progress

Look around our fast-changing global economy; there are hundreds of companies that have been disrupted by digital native companies, from big tech to startups, that deliver engaging customer experiences. Whether or not disruption is on your radar, there’s no doubt that you need an approach to building business and technology services that is flexible, fast, responsive and cloud-based. Start with a focus on the customer and what makes your business unique; and leverage modern app experiences to engage new and existing customers. Indeed, app development, as a discipline, itself is going through its own “agile” disruption.

Regaining the Advantage: How Cyber AI Neutralizes Never-Before-Seen Threats - Darktrace

To keep pace with an ever-evolving cyber-threat landscape, Darktrace employs a fundamentally unique approach to security - one rooted in the adaptive nature of artificial intelligence. Rather than predefining what constitutes threatening behavior in advance, Darktrace AI learns a unique ‘pattern of life’ for every user, device, and network that it safeguards, allowing it to spot the subtly anomalous behavior associated with sophisticated and never-before-seen attacks.
