Startup PatternEx Launches AI Platform for Network Security

Fresh approaches to enterprise data security are always welcome, because bad actors always seem to find workarounds for the conventional ones.

Startup PatternEx tasked itself with securing enterprise data by using a different approach: mimicking the intuition of human security analysts in real time and at scale using a new-gen artificial intelligence platform.

If you think that sounds complicated, well, you're right. Undaunted by this challenge, the San Jose, Calif.-based PatternEx officially opened for business Feb. 3 and introduced its Threat Prediction Platform that creates so-called "virtual security analysts."
