Key topics across the three-day summit included presentations on rising trends in threat intelligence, MDR, the impact of deepfakes and AI generated ransomware and, not least of all, the company’s own AI advisor tool, which translates data across risk identification, analysis, and response capabilities into easily digestible insights.

The vendor is, unsurprisingly, looking to its channel partners to bring all of these developments to market, as they move towards subscription or services models.
