John N. Stewart, Arcanna.ai investor, board member and former director of security and trust at Cisco, said, “In my 30 years in cybersecurity, attack rates have grown out of control, making it nearly impossible for security analysts to keep up. Automation is the only solution, and by bringing business intelligence to SecOps, Arcanna.ai multiplies human capabilities to tip the scales back. It’s not just about today’s attack volume, it’s about anticipating tomorrow.
