But one constant as we work through the business challenges spawned by this international crisis is the empathetic leadership that technology executives are demonstrating to their teams to help keep them safe, secure and engaged. The key for CIOs, CISOs and other technology executives to drive success for their companies is to draw from their past and current experiences in the current crisis and to apply a fresh mindset in leading the business forward into a brighter future with courage and compassion.

Awake Security is the only advanced network detection and response company that delivers answers, not alerts. By combining artificial intelligence with human expertise, Awake autonomously models and hunts for both insider and external attacker behaviors, while providing triage, digital forensics and incident response across the new network—perimeter, core, IoT and cloud networks. The Awake Security Platform does this by deeply analyzing billions of network communications to autonomously discover, profile and classify every device, user and application across any network. Using a multi-dimensional machine learning approach, Awake then models complex adversarial behaviors and connects the dots across entities, time, protocols and attack stage. Unlike legacy network detection and response tools that rely primarily on unsupervised learning to spot anomalies from “normal” baselines, Awake instead compares entity behaviors to the peer group and the rest of the organization. This enables Awake to deliver threat detections with low false positives and negatives and provides the context necessary for triage, incident response and remediation. Awake is also thus able to avoid temporal baselining and ongoing training challenges that add to operational overhead. Independent testing proves out these differentiators and shows Awake is more than twice as accurate and produces almost 1500% less noise than the competition. Awake is ranked #1 by EMA for time to value and was recognized as the #1 information security solution being evaluated by global 1000 companies in Enterprise Technology Research’s (ETR) Summer 2019 Emerging Technology Study. Awake is backed by Greylock Partners, Bain Capital Ventures, Evolution Equity Partners, Energize Ventures and Liberty Global Ventures.https://awakesecurity.com/
The Sonatype journey started 10 years ago, just as the concept of “open source” software development was gaining steam. From our humble beginning as core contributors to Apache Maven, to supporting the world’s largest repository of open source components (Central), to distributing the world's most popular repository manager (Nexus), we’ve played a meaningful role in helping the world embrace the power of open innovation. Over time, we witnessed the staggering volume and variety of open source libraries that began flowing into every development environment in the world. We understood that when open source components are properly managed, they provide tremendous energy for accelerating innovation. Conversely, when unmanaged, open-source "gone wild" can lead directly to security vulnerabilities, licensing risks, enormous rework, and waste. Our vision today is simple. We are laser-focused on helping organizations continuously harness all of the good that open source has to offer, without any of the risks.https://www.sonatype.com/
