Defending enterprises against the growing frequency and complexity of cyberattacks is becoming an ever-increasing burden to cybersecurity budgets and manpower. An ESG enterprise-class cybersecurity technology platform white paper commissioned by McAfee shows CISOs have "reached a tipping point where the current cybersecurity point tools are no longer acceptable." Current high-cost, complex strategies using disconnected point tools aren't working and CISOs are abandoning their collection of cybersecurity point tools in favor of a consolidated, integrated approach. ESG reports that consolidation is wide spread and growing – 22% of organizations are actively consolidating the number of cybersecurity vendors they do business with on a large scale while 44% of respondents are consolidating the number of cybersecurity vendors they do business with on a limited basis. ESG expects this trend to gain momentum over the next 12 to 24 months.
Does true Artificial Intelligence even exist yet? Will it ever exist or will it end the world before we reach its full capacity? The hype around Artificial Intelligence (AI) is currently a media frenzy and if we aren't careful, we will ruin the name before it has had a chance to really prove itself due to a lack of knowledge around it. AI is a beautiful concept of futuristic computing that the tech industry and academic research is leading in a way that may one day see dramatically enormous changes to the way we live our lives and pivot the human race into a new digital era. But for now, AI is simply misunderstood.
