It was time-consuming, tedious and imperfect.

You will learn about:

  • Choice Hotels' challenges and solutions on the path to continuous modernization
  • How automating code remediation can dramatically change the security posture and productivity balance within an organization
  • What it takes to automatically remediate vulnerabilities with high accuracy at enterprise scale
