Summary Advanced attacks represent a challenge for organizations that are getting breached due to architectural misfits and resource challenges Enlarging the width and depth of threat detection and response helps improve the cyber resilience of enterprise environments The Forrester New Wave™: Extended Detection and Response (XDR) Providers, Q4 2021 report, helps cybersecurity professionals to navigate the new XDR space Top reasons for cybersecurity breaches Breaches like this one keep repeating like a sad song – with an undiscovered cyber-attack for a staggering… 17 months.

They can solve problems previously considered impossible due to their complexity – and they do it almost instantaneously. When Google developed its first quantum computer in 2019, the machine was able to solve a calculation in just over 3 minutes that would have taken the world’s fastest supercomputer at the time 10,000 years to solve. read more
