NEC, Fujitsu aim to fill need with efficient cyberdefense

Automated tasks crucial to cybersecurity in short-handed Japan

The amount of leaked private information from cyberattacks is on the rise.

TOKYO -- NEC and Fujitsu, two of Japan's biggest information technology companies, are each adding cyberdefense services that save time and manpower. 

As cyberattacks become more advanced and clever, there is a shortage of technicians able to respond. New technology is making it possible to leave simple tasks to computers and allow only humans to respond to the largest threats. NEC is using AI to cut down the number of warnings that require human action, and Fujitsu will introduce a new technology that can assess the damage of a virus in as little as tens of minutes.
