IBM unveils new cognitive assistant to protect devices
Las Vegas: Software giant IBM on Monday launched a new cognitive assistant that leverages the capabilities of IBM Watson to help IT professionals effectively manage and protect networks of smartphones, tablets, laptops, internet of things (IoT) devices and other endpoints.
The ‘MaaS360 Advisor’ will use machine learning to analyse devices on the network and recommend policies, patches and customised practices to better manage and protect them.
“Through MaaS360 with Watson, we’re not only able to streamline and sharpen the data so administrators can stay ahead of the curve, but also transform the way they interact with their environment,” said Jim Brennan, Director of Strategy and Offering Management, IBM Security.
MaaS360 UEM (Unified Endpoint Management) supports multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows and macOS/OS X.
