Future inTense - Next Generation Cybersecurity AI & ML Products Analysis

Future inTense

"...if the product doesn't operate based on some form of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, you won't see it in Future inTense," said Dr. Peter Stephenson

Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine announces the addition of Dr. Peter Stephenson, one of the most well known cybersecurity analysts in the world, to share new cybersecurity product analysis exclusively at, called Future inTense™.

This program, “Future inTense™” is about the next generation of attackers, their tools and, most particularly, the tools we need to fight back.

Dr. Peter Stephenson will be analyzing next generation security tools - those using some legitimate form of AI - and putting them through their paces in his lab.

“In fact, if the product doesn’t operate based on some form of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, you won’t see it in Future inTense™,” said Dr. Peter Stephenson.

We believe there are several distinct advantages that you will gain from reading Future inTense:

  • First, unlike typical reviews that may stretch to 750-1,000 words, these analyses will average about 1,500 words. That gives Dr. Stephenson enough space to take a fairly deep dive into the product, how it works, where it fits in your security stack and how well it performs its mission;
  • Second, unlike his prior work, he will not be rating or comparing products;
  • Third, he will look at the product in the same context that you would: how applicable is it to my use case? There will be no star ratings, shoot-outs or bake-offs here.

In each analysis, Dr. Stephenson will tell you how he performed his in depth analysis so you can try to duplicate his results. For CISOs looking for next generation solutions that might help stop or mitigate serious risk in their next potential breach, this could save them and their team countless product selection and testing time and help spotlight the innovators who deserve it.

“We are excited that Dr. Peter Stephenson has joined our team and is launching this comprehensive deeper dive program, which will go way beyond traditional pay-for-play product reviews. We expect this to be very exclusive to only a small group of next generation and innovative solutions that meet their astounding claims,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
