10 Cool New Cybersecurity Tools Announced At RSAC 2023
Top vendors including SentinelOne, Google Cloud and Cisco unveiled new products Monday to kick off RSA Conference 2023.
RSAC 2023 Is Here
RSA Conference 2023 officially kicked off Monday in San Francisco, and much has changed for the cybersecurity industry just since the last RSAC. The massive annual gathering at the Moscone Center most recently took place in June 2022, and while AI was certainly a major facet of the show at the time, that was still the “pre-ChatGPT” world. As RSAC 2023 gets underway this week, it will be more obvious than ever that the OpenAI chatbot has had a powerful impact on both cyber defense and attackers, setting off what many are calling an “arms race” around generative AI. This year, the flurry of RSAC-related product launches has already begun as of Monday, and generative AI technology is front-and-center in a number of them.
The announcements so far have included generative AI-based offerings for security operations teams from companies including SentinelOne, Google Cloud and Accenture. The adoption of generative AI by these companies shows how the technology is already branching out in the cybersecurity industry beyond OpenAI and its GPT large language models.
There’s plenty going on outside of generative AI in the RSAC 2023 cybersecurity product announcements so far, as well. The hype around extended detection and response (XDR) at the conference is likely to be at least on par with last year, with vendors including Cisco debuting major new tools in the XDR segment. Several other security tools launched on the first day of RSAC also bring a focus on improved detection and response, as well as enhanced capabilities for security operations teams overall, including with IBM’s debut of a new suite of offerings for security analysts.
RSAC 2023 takes place this week from Monday, April 24, through Thursday, April 27.
What follows are the key details on 10 new cybersecurity tools announced so far at RSA Conference 2023.
