In a Security Infowatch article, Shailesh Rao, president of the Cortex division at Palo Alto Networks, observes that chief information security officers must evolve their cyber strategies as future threats loom.

Gartner predicts that 40 percent of enterprise applications will have embedded conversational AI by 2024, up from less than 5 percent in 2020. The analyst firm also cited that by 2025, 30 percent of enterprises will have implemented an AI-augmented development and testing strategy.
