Cyber Security Darktrace


Company Overview

Founded in 2013 by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge, Darktrace was the first company to develop an AI system for cyber security. Darktrace founders also include cyber security experts from government intelligence backgrounds, united in their mission to fundamentally transform the ability of organizations to defend their most critical assets in the face of rising cyber-threat.
Darktrace’s world-leading AI for cyber defense is analogous to the human immune system – it protects against novel threats, mounting a preemive response, rapidly. The Enterprise Immune System understands your organization’s digital DNA – and is relied on by thousands of organizations worldwide to stop even the subtlest of attackers.
Darktrace is headquartered in San Francisco and Cambridge, UK, with 44 offices globally and over 1,200 employees. It is privately owned, with investors including KKR, Summit Partners, Vitruvian Partners, Samsung Ventures, TenEleven Ventures, Hoxton Ventures, Talis Capital, Invoke Capital and Insight Venture Partners.


Enterprise Immune System

The Enterprise Immune System is a self-learning cyber AI technology that detects novel attacks and insider threats at an early stage. Modeled on the human immune system, the Enterprise Immune System learns and understands ‘self’ for everyone and everything in the business, and can spot the subtle signals of an advanced attack — without relying on rules, signatures, or prior assumptions.

Key Benefits

  • Learns continuously ‘on the job’ and adapts in light of new evidence
  • Detects novel attacks at their earliest stage
  • Installs in under an hour, requiring no manual tuning or configuration
  • Complete visibility across hybrid, multi-cloud, and IoT infrastructure
  • Executive-friendly
  • Cuts investigation time by 92%

Antigena Network

Powered by Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System, Darktrace Antigena represents the first proven application of autonomous response technology in the enterprise. Having pioneered a unique self-learning approach for real-time speed, taking proportionate action to contain in-progress threats before they have time to escalate into a crisis.
When the system detects a high-severity threat, Darktrace Antigena responds within seconds - taking proportionate action to neutralize the threat and give the security team time to catch up. For example, ransomware - which can infect dozens of computers in just under a few minutes - can be detected and contained within approximately
2 seconds, avoiding spread beyond the initial point of compromise.

Key Benefits

  • A self-learning Cyber AI that AUTONOMOUSLY  DETECTS & RESPONDS in REAL-TIME to any potentially threating behavior on the network
  • Completes the immunological model with ‘Adaptive’ mechanics to compliment the ‘Innate’
  • Does not rely on predefined signatures or prior knowledge
  • Takes targeted, surgical action to contain in-progress threats
  • Only way to deal with machine-speed attacks
  • Slows down or stops the progress of novel threats within the network, buying human teams time to catch up
