Cognitive systems provide a completely new level of security. They collect data and analyse the latest data and develop as fast as the information becomes accessible. Watson’s artificial intelligence mimics our own brains, learning from every interaction, becoming stronger and thus more proactive against threats. More than 75,000 software vulnerabilities are documented and over 10,000 research papers are published every year, and more than 60,000 blogs on security are posted every month. Now it is possible to collect, interpret and use this knowledge using Watson’s groundbreaking artificial intelligence.
