Blink Ops launches AI copilot to streamline security automation


Blink Ops, a cybersecurity startup based in Tel Aviv, has launched a new software product that uses generative AI to create no-code workflows for security and IT operations. The company claims that Blink Copilot is the first of its kind in the market and that it can significantly reduce the time and effort required to automate security workflows. “For example, during a recent demo, I asked Blink Copilot to generate a workflow that monitors for new vulnerabilities in cloud infrastructure, automatically looks up the relevant engineers that can fix them and assigns a ServiceNow ticket with a due date of 48 hours,” said Barak. Similarly, he added, “teams might create complex workflows for onboarding new employees to different services with permissions pre-configured, or set up quarantine workflows for at-risk devices which automatically lock accounts and send notifications asking employees to confirm recent activities.” A shortage of cybersecurity professionals has made automation crucial for companies who must to defend against a high volume of cyberattacks, according to a 2022 McKinsey report. Blink Ops says its new AI system significantly lowers the barriers for automating security workflows that previously required months of labor.
