17 May 2017

Military customers are increasingly turning to automation to combat cyber threats, according to UK-based cyber security specialist, Titania.

Its Nipper Studio product is aimed at hardening networks against attack - checking elements like routers, switches and firewalls for weaknesses - while its Paws Studio product is designed to check the security of individual laptops, workstations and servers.
