The long-awaited ARM processor revolution has finally arrived. ARM processors, which started out by conquering mobile devices, suddenly seemed to be an interesting, viable alternative for servers, desktops, and laptops and many companies invested in what was believed to be a surefire future trend in the technology industry. Yet as the years went by, ARM solutions did not fulfil the expectations in this hugely lucrative market. At least not until now.

In 2021, ARM is set to fulfil its potential thanks to the support of Microsoft. This new opportunity will come, according to Bloomberg News, through the effort that the tech giant is making in designing its own ARM processors, chips that are to be used on its servers and cloud infrastructure, as well as in the Surface range of devices.

At Panda Security, a WatchGuard brand, we are aware of just how dynamic the cybersecurity industry is, and that market maturity, pressure from competitors, and cyberthreat evolution has led customers to expect an increasingly perfect response and a truly reliable solution. For this reason, and in our quest to respond and adapt to the needs of businesses and organizations, we have launched a new version of our Endpoint Security portfolio which maximizes the protection and coverage of supported platforms along with many other improvements now available in the XI release of Aether-based cybersecurity solutions for endpoints.
