A New Type of Cybersecurity Company

Below is an article originally written by Chris Finan and published on March 9, 2021, in ActZeroAI's blog. Go to ActZeroAI's company page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

Today, we're launching ActZero, a new type of cybersecurity company whose mission is to make exceptional cybersecurity accessible to small and mid-sized enterprises. The need could not be more clear: Increasingly sophisticated attacks are targeting organizations of all sizes, leveraging nation-state sponsored vulnerabilities in widely used software and a Cambrian explosion of specialized attack tools and services. Criminal organizations around the globe are taking advantage of the weak software and available tools to conduct elaborate extortion rackets that hold data and manufacturing capabilities at risk, demanding companies pay exorbitant ransoms.

We've witnessed first-hand the impact these criminal activities have on small and mid-sized firms; the ones most vulnerable to advanced attacks. Organizations most affected are often family businesses, community hospitals, and utilities — the very services we rely on for healthy and prosperous societies. It's maddening. So we resolved to do something about it. But, we realized a new approach was necessary to be effective.

We needed to deliver security as an easy-to-consume service for these small companies. We needed skilled human threat hunters who could detect sophisticated new techniques. And we needed to empower our threat hunters to be as effective and efficient as possible given the scale of the threat. The answer became clear: This was an opportunity to innovate using artificial intelligence to enable more effective human analysis. So, we assembled a world-class R&D arm to build the artificial intelligence capability, and we found a team delivering cybersecurity with skilled threat hunters, IntelliGO Networks, who we acquired and integrated into one cohesive unit, singularly focused on this new mission.

Now that we've launched, the even tougher task begins — to continue innovating and improving our capabilities to keep organizations protected against attackers armed with increasingly sophisticated tools and software vulnerabilities to exploit. To paraphrase Churchill, 'today is not the end, but merely the end of the beginning' of our mission. Our ultimate goal is to get our customers to zero... zero breaches, zero threats, zero vulnerabilities, zero inadequate cybersecurity controls. We'll do this by continually investing to outpace the adversary across our technology, people and processes.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.


Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Only 4% of companies that say they value diversity consider disabilities. Even fewer include learning and thinking differences.

While neurodiversity is a concept that is gaining more awareness, many employers have still not fully grasped the importance (and benefits) of understanding neurodiversity and how to effectively incorporate and retain neurodivergent individuals in their organizations.

30+ Ways Companies Are Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

Founded in 1989, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends October 15. The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year. Here's what they're doing, in their own words:
