“Traditional security controls such as sandboxes, anomaly detection, and signature-based detection are not able to cope with the sophistication, speed and volume of modern malware, ransomware, and other threats constantly infiltrating enterprise networks and cloud. We are able to achieve 99.8% threat detection accuracy and sub-second verdict speed with our deep learning technology to revolutionize security operations,” said Nayeem Islam, CEO of Blue Hexagon. “Forbes included us for using artificial intelligence in meaningful business-oriented ways. We’re proud to be included in their list, and believe AI will fundamentally change the way we protect against cyber threats.”

In total, Forbes received about 400 entries and applied an algorithm to identify the 100 with the highest quantitative scores and then a panel of eight expert AI judges identified the 50 most compelling companies that included Blue Hexagon.
