Today, UiPath (NYSE: PATH), a leading enterprise automation software company, announced its partnership with Peraton, a leading mission capability integrator and transformative enterprise IT provider, to deliver the UiPath Business Automation Platform as a cloud-based managed service to high-security environments within U.S. intelligence, defense, and civilian agencies.
Peraton specializes in helping essential government agencies overcome daunting challenges that require fast, reliable, and secure technology solutions. These valued customers require the highest levels of compliance and security to complete their missions. This partnership enables it to take advantage of the UiPath AI-powered automation platform in sensitive environments as a managed service – either via cloud or on-premises with expert support in automation scripting, implementation, and management. As a result, the customers will be able to rapidly scale in any mission area, take full advantage of higher productivity and increased visibility, enjoy enhanced insights with real-time situational intelligence, advance their digital transformation, and improve business outcomes within their unique customer environments.
Through this partnership, UiPath and Peraton allow customers to create and execute on automation strategies, drive mission agility, and orchestrate transformational impact for highly sensitive secure workloads. The AI-powered UiPath Platform offers unprecedented time-to-value by combining the leading robotic process automation (RPA) solution with a full suite of capabilities to understand, automate, and operate end-to-end processes.
“Automation can be a potent 'arrow in the quiver' for civilian, defense and the intelligence community—as well as for American businesses and citizens—as we move forward into a future of renewal, resilience, and readiness,” said Mike Daniels, Senior Vice President of Public Sector at UiPath. “With automation, implementations happen fast, and improvements are immediate. Our partnership with Peraton will enable us to jointly push automation out to the edge to effect where services are delivered, which leads to better outcomes and improved employee experiences.”
“Our partnership with UiPath will leverage the power of automation, AI, and machine learning to help tackle missions of consequence at greater scope and scale than before,” said Mike King, Chief Growth Officer at Peraton. “As national security continues to evolve, this partnership helps ensure our customers are utilizing market-leading solutions to achieve transformational impact and meet the challenges of tomorrow.”
Automation can be deployed to increase quality, reduce human error, increase compliance, strengthen controls environments, and add new services to an organization’s portfolio. The White House Executive Order (EO) on Transforming Federal Customer Experience and Service Delivery to Rebuild Trust in Government instructs federal agencies to modernize government programs and find ways to reduce costly, time-consuming administrative tasks—which are achievable in automation first organizations. Additionally, since the launch of the Federal Cloud Computing Strategy, government agencies have been migrating to the cloud to achieve scalability and reduce costs.
UiPath and Peraton combined to drastically improve processes at a U.S. defense agency. The customer needed to process hundreds of weekly metrics from data dispersed in disparate sources. With an automation solution from UiPath, the agency built highly scalable bots to fully automate the process, reducing the workload from many hours to 15 minutes. In addition, automation can be deployed to support federal and civilian agencies to manage future global events such as pandemics by processing and understanding data in real time.

Paladin Cloud, a leading open source, cloud security company, today unveiled its new SaaS cloud security platform to help organizations identify and visualize their cyber assets and security controls, while monitoring their cloud environments for vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and security risks. Early customer adoption across financial services, technology and health care validates the company’s holistic approach to improve an enterprise’s overall security posture.
Businesses have struggled with early detection of security risks in the cloud with challenges in monitoring assets in dynamic environments running in development and production. Paladin Cloud addresses this by maintaining a real-time cyber asset inventory, allowing CISOs and security teams to discover and visualize their attack surface. The company’s agentless cloud monitoring and alerting capabilities coupled with third party integrations into widely deployed enterprise systems provides security teams with the ability to ensure their security controls and protections over their cyber assets are providing the intended coverage. The company’s security-as-code capabilities allows organizations to manage their overall security posture across their cyber assets to ensure governance and compliance with best practice security policies.
“As enterprises accelerate their move to the cloud, CISOs and security teams will need to take a holistic approach to cloud security, one that defines their cyber asset attack surface and extends their security posture,” said Daniel Deeney, Co-founder and CEO. “Organizations will need to develop early detection capabilities to identify and remediate vulnerabilities and misconfigurations to protect applications and data.”
Built on top of Paladin Cloud’s open source core, the new SaaS platform contains hundreds of best practice security policies implemented in code in the product. The platform serves as an extensible policy management plane with connectors into enterprise systems to provide a holistic view of security across multi and hybrid cloud environments.
Paladin Cloud’s new SaaS platform allows organizations to:
Define their cyber attack surface: discover asset inventory and visualize the attack surface
Reduce exposure to vulnerabilities and threats: up to 30% reduction in attack surface
Continuously monitor multi-cloud environments: identify vulnerabilities and security risks to improve your security posture
Verify security controls are providing protection: identify gaps in security tool coverage
Implement company SLAs to drive resolution times: assign SLAs to severity-based categorization of security risks to monitor compliance
Reduce time to remediate security risks: drive automation with one-click fixes and auto-fixes
Group assets and security findings: assign assets to users, applications, products, business units, and cloud services to drive behavioral change
Create custom policies and connectors: drive extensibility through the creation of company specific policies and integrations into third party systems
Enhance regulatory compliance: implement reporting across several benchmarks and standards to improve governance and compliance
Automate incident management: ticketing integrations, alerts and notifications
Meet us at our Booth
We look forward to your visit at Booth #1 in the RSA Early Stage Expo South (level 2) for a demo of our new SaaS cloud security platform. We invite our customers to stop by the booth to meet us.

Sitecore®, a global leader in end-to-end digital experience software, today announced the release of new component capabilities in its cloud native, modern CMS, XM Cloud, which will empower brands to deliver seamless and personalized customer experiences across all digital touchpoints.
XM Cloud Components is a Front End as a Service (FEaaS) composer for marketers to create their brand's digital style guide and build visual components. Components can be created from scratch or can be styled by importing existing HTML. Data sources can be mapped to components to enable dynamic and responsive components that may be reused across digital properties, saving time and creating brand consistency.
With XM Cloud Components, content authors, UX designers, and marketers can work in parallel to speed up the process of creating on-brand digital experiences for their customers. It's fully integrated with XM Cloud Pages, creating an end-to-end next generation authoring experience.
"We're thrilled to introduce this new component capability to our XM Cloud platform, designed to enable marketers, designers and developers to work in harmony," said Dave O'Flanagan, chief product officer of Sitecore. "With the ability to compose on-brand, dynamic page components, brands can remain agile and responsive to customer needs in real-time, which is essential in today's fast-paced digital landscape. Our modern SaaS-based DXP provides limitless opportunities for brands to plug and play new technologies such as ChatGPT, introducing a new level of flexibility to adapt and respond to technology innovations and the ever-changing customer needs."
According to an exclusive survey conducted by leading market research firm Advanis on behalf of Sitecore in March 2023, most US marketers (85%) expect that they will move at least some of their marketing tech stack to composable software solutions. The top three reasons for choosing composable offerings include flexibility to integrate with existing martech stack (47%), faster time to value (46%) and freedom to integrate technologies that optimize the customer experience (46%). Having realized the benefits of using composable software, these findings prove that US marketers are now ready to take the next step in seamlessly deploying engaging and personalized digital experiences.
Commenting on their exciting journey with Sitecore, Amy Kolzow, VP Global Digital Marketing at Wolters Kluwer said: "We are proud to provide a unified and modern online experience that brings dynamic thought leadership to our customers and showcases our vast product portfolio. When we embarked on our digital transformation journey, we found it challenging to create web experiences that cater for every marketer, regardless of how mature they were in their use of technology. It's that balance we found with Sitecore that we couldn't find elsewhere. Since beginning our partnership, we built 30,000 pages, and now we publish about 100 pages a day, all thanks to the drag-and-drop components capability."
At DX Europe, the company also announced it has signed over twenty new customers to its XM Cloud platform since Sitecore Symposium, which took place in Chicago in October 2022.
In addition to XM Cloud Components, Sitecore also unveiled a number of other updates:
Content Hub One
Since the launch of its pureplay Headless CMS in October, Sitecore has continued to roll out enhancements to Content Hub One around user interface, preview capabilities, better content modelling and developer experience.
In addition, Sitecore announced that it has signed a major multinational cosmetics brand as the latest customer to use Content Hub One. The brand will use Content Hub One as a key part of its digital content delivery strategy, allowing the cosmetics giant to easily build digital experiences off the same platform and leverage only the best content.
Following the successful launch in October, Sitecore Connect has been building great traction in the market. Sitecore has released pre-built connectors for a number of products including Content Hub ONE, Content Hub DAM and Ops, CDP, Send and OrderCloud.
This has enabled practitioners to create a host of new capabilities to enable content integration, including examples leveraging the latest AI tech such as Generative AI (ChatGPT) and stable diffusion tech (Dall-e) to augment content in the Composable DXP.
According to the Advanis survey, two-thirds of US marketers (61%) have noticed changes in customer search patterns, particularly increases in direct-to-retail, social and voice search. To address this, a great majority of US marketers have either already invested (70%) or are planning to invest (23%) in AI-powered search to be able to better respond to changing customer needs.
In response, Sitecore Search has been updated with powerful AI and analytics capabilities that make it far better at recognizing questions in different formats, helping brands to deflect call center traffic and save costs.
In addition, Sitecore released global support for double-byte characters like Chinese.
"We integrated Sitecore Search on Sitecore.com to revamp the search experience on our own website," said Hannah Grap, VP, Corporate Marketing, Sitecore. "Within a month from implementation, we saw a 25% increase in click-through rate and doubled the amount of relevant content to our visitors for some of our top keywords."
A host of enhancements have enhanced Sitecore's email marketing solution - Sitecore Send – to lead the way in effortless automation and personalization. Some of the highlights include:
A new mobile-friendly design, optimized to improve the user experience on mobile devices.
AI-powered audience discovery tool to find, organize, and target different groups of customers based on their specific interests, buying intent, and where they are in the sales funnel. These insights help marketers improve the relevancy of your campaigns.
Redesign of the email designer making it even easier for markets to craft compelling email campaigns.
