PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--StrikeReady, a cloud-based security operations and management company, announced today that it was named a Technology Innovator in Advance VAs by 2021 Gartner “Emerging Technologies: Tech Innovators in Advanced Virtual Assistants” report. According to Gartner, “this report highlights technology providers that advance and accelerate the use of virtual assistant technology. Technology providers were selected based on the observed ability to market and sell AI-based or AI-enabling technologies with proven capabilities for optimization and/or transformation.“
The Gartner report further states that, “By converging AI, data, automation and assist capabilities, software and business application providers within security and targeting other industries can help organizations to make more intelligent decisions faster with advanced VxAs. Domain-specific VAs can analyze data, automate processes, make order or supply chain adjustments, and enforce countermeasures in security or provide advice, while continuing to learn in real time, thus increasing their usefulness for employees and organizations.”
“No matter how large or small the organization is, an understaffed security team is not only overwhelmed with threats, advisories, solutions, and headlines, but also has difficulty determining what matters and how to deal with it. In addition, these teams do not have any platform that they can use to enhance their knowledge and skills related to cybersecurity so that they can deal with future threats and improve their efficiency every day. The time has come for these security teams to leverage AI-powered cyber virtual assistants, think of highly skilled domain-centric Siri and/or Cortana," said Yasir Khalid, CEO of StrikeReady. “It is wonderful to see Gartner recognize StrikeReady as a Technology Innovator in Advanced VA. As a result of CARA (Cyber Awareness and Response Analyst), defenders around the world have gained practical experience and institutional knowledge, thereby advancing their reasoning and reaction abilities. All defenders should take advantage of CARA in order to reduce their workload and enhance their skills.”
