SparkCognition's Award-Winning Cybersecurity Solution Providing Zero-Day Protection Now Available in Lenovo's Small Business Store

SparkCognition | February 02, 2022

SparkCognition, a global leader in artificial intelligence (AI) software solutions for business, announced its award-winning AI endpoint protection product (EPP) solution, DeepArmor, is now available in the LenovoPRO Small Business Store.

"We are proud to work with Lenovo to bring our AI-enabled cyber solution to a broader range of small business users, helping them to detect and prevent even the most sophisticated zero-day cyber threats," said Vijay Doradla, President at SparkCognition. "The Deep Armor technology, based on advanced machine learning models, can help prevent never before seen cyberattacks, even while working offline, requiring less than four megabytes of space for deployment."

A new cyberattack occurs every 39 seconds, putting businesses at risk of being compromised, shut down, and ransomed. SparkCognition developed DeepArmor as the first line of defense to prevent cyber threats at the edge. Built on proven AI and machine learning (ML) models, rather than rules, heuristics, and specific signatures, DeepArmor helps to prevent malware from accessing sensitive data, taking operational control, and compromising asset integrity, blocking known and new ransomware, trojans, and viruses. Its endpoint protection works both online and off, and installs and activates within minutes, without needing IT support or security skills. 

"Two in five small to mid-sized businesses were impacted by ransomware in 2020, with 43% lacking any type of cybersecurity defense. Extending our AI expertise and trusted and tested cyber solutions to Lenovo's small business customers is just one way we're able to work together to serve businesses in further protecting their endpoints."

Marc Davis, Senior Director of Business Development at SparkCognition

Pensa Announce Unveiling New Retail Shelf Facings Optimization Solution

Pensa Systems | December 29, 2022

On December 22, 2022, Pensa Systems, a frontrunner in the field of automated retail shelf intelligence, announced the debut of its facings optimization solution, which will assist consumer packaged goods (CPG) brands in increasing their revenue through enhanced retail shelf facings optimization. The term "shelf facings" refers to the number of a product's units that are visible from the front of a retail shelf. In grocery retail, the rivalry among CPG brands for facings is severe due to their direct correlation to revenue expansion. In the past, facings allocation was established based on rough approximations of relative sales volume and velocity generated from point-of-sale (POS) data that looked backward. Brands often combine POS data with simulated shelf scenarios to estimate how well their products will do on the shelf. However, POS data is notoriously "noisy." For instance, slow product sales represented in POS data could be an indication that a particular product is not selling or that the product is frequently out of stock and unavailable for purchase. Pensa bridges this gap for CPG brands and retailers by offering a continuous view of real products on retail shelves across a wide variety of shops and shelf formats. Pensa applies the concept of pricing elasticity to facings by correlating actual on-shelf product availability with the number of facings per product to determine the ideal number of facings by product and by category to boost revenue without allocating space to one product at the expense of others. Pensa's Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the world's first fully automated shelf intelligence system. The company's AI solution learns to visually recognize and differentiate between products on the shelf, much like a human does. This is better than comparing a single product image against a product image database or scanning the barcode on the bottom of a package. About Pensa Pensa is the market leader in automated retail shelf intelligence, powered by patented powerful AI and computer vision. Pensa provides the source of truth regarding what is happening on the retail shelf in order to prevent stockouts, boost shelf share, optimize product planning, and enhance the customer experience in an omnichannel world. Pensa partners with top CPG brands and retailers internationally, including General Mills, Johnson & Johnson, Unilever, Anheuser-Busch InBev, and Circle K, to address a trillion-dollar industry "blind spot" at a crucial time.
