Syxsense Drops Cortex Copilot, an AI Sidekick for Mastering Endpoint Maneuvers

By Greg Tavarez

IT and security administration has undergone a transformation in recent years, marked by an unprecedented surge in the scale and intricacy of tasks facing professionals in these fields. The naked eye can clearly see this.

The rapid expansion of digital infrastructure across industries has led to an explosion in the number of devices, applications and systems that require management, monitoring, and maintenance. From traditional desktops and servers to a plethora of mobile devices, IoT endpoints and cloud services, the diversity of technologies has grown immensely, magnifying the scope of administrators' duties.

Then, there is the always-changing sophistication of cyber threats that has necessitated intricate approaches to security administration. As malicious actors employ increasingly advanced tactics, security professionals must deploy an arsenal of defensive measures to safeguard networks, data and sensitive information.

It’s gotten to the point where IT and security administrators need assistance. It’s like they need a copilot with them to help handle anything that pops up while they are busy dealing with other priorities.

Well, that's now possible with Syxsense, a provider of unified security and endpoint management (USEM) solutions. Syxsense announced Cortex Copilot, a new AI engine that allows IT and security administrators to simplify and speed up the process of creating endpoint management and security workflow automation.

Cortex Copilot enhances the capabilities already present in Syxsense Cortex. This platform already offers an intuitive, no-code interface, allowing IT and security administrators to swiftly construct intricate automated workflows. These workflows encompass a wide spectrum of tasks, such as software deployment, patch management, vulnerability scanning and remediation, and compliance reporting. This is complemented by a comprehensive array of other endpoint management and security functions.

The introduction of Cortex Copilot brings with it the potential for automating endpoint tasks reaching new heights. Prior familiarity with coding or scripting languages is unnecessary. Users now effortlessly convey their desired task or workflow to the AI.

Subsequently, Cortex Copilot generates the requisite code, encompassing all essential steps. The included visual editor serves as a valuable aid in pinpointing the code components, sparing users the laborious effort of combing through scripts. The code can be seamlessly integrated into the Cortex engine for immediate execution through a simple drag-and-drop process.

“The sheer volume and complexity of IT and security administrators' tasks have grown exponentially over the last decade. It’s what led us to create Cortex years ago,” said Ashley Leonard, founder and CEO at Syxsense. “Now with advances around AI, we’re able to supercharge that automation process and redefine what’s possible with Cortex Copilot. Our updated Cortex engine enhances productivity, reduces errors and learns and adapts to future-proof automation efforts."

Additionally, the launch of Cortex Copilot is paired with Windows Modern Device Management. Now, IT managers have a zero-touch method for device compliance and security. Devices arrive from vendors, with the Syxsense Agent auto-installing upon the first login via Azure Cloud authentication. This allows centralized control and utilizes protocols like ML and SyncML for functions such as remote data wipes, app management, geotracking, and device enrollment.
