Why Microsoft and AIxCC

“Microsoft is partnering with DARPA’s AI Cyber Challenge because Microsoft has been committed to addressing cybersecurity issues for a long time, constantly receiving and analyzing signals to understand emerging cyber threats. Now we’re bringing it all together – threat intelligence and AI into a powerful new approach to address cyber threats.”

– David Weston, Vice President of Enterprise and Open Source Security, Microsoft
