New Partnership with Darktrace!


We are pleased to announce that we are now partners with Darktrace, which strengthens our security portfolio even further!

Darktrace is a world leader in Enterprise Immune System technology for cyber security.

Using new machine learning techniques based on the biological principles of the human immune system, Darktrace addresses the challenge of detecting previously unidentified cyber threats, irrespective of their origin.

Darktrace’s unique technology doesn’t follow rules or signatures, it is powered by advanced machine learning, allowing it to learn what is normal for a company’s network environment, so that it can then determine if any behavior is abnormal. This allows it to detect cyber attacks of a nature that may not have been observed before, the unknown unknowns. The ability to self-learn and adapt to a changing environment in real-time allows organisations to reconcile the need for an interconnected workforce, customer base and supply chain, whilst ensuring that they protect against serious, existential threats to their businesses in the most effective and pragmatic way possible

Named ‘Best Security Company of the Year’ 2016, Darktrace is capable of identifying new, emerging threats within computer networks in real time. This unique capability is delivered by Darktrace’s cyber intelligence software platform, which leverages advanced mathematical models to establish an evolving understanding of every device, user and network and stay ahead of developing APTs, insider attacks and other live threat scenarios.


 

Its software has been deployed over 750 times in companies around the world, including Europe, the US, Asia, the Middle East, and New Zealand. High profile customers include BT, Drax Power Station, several governments, the Welcome Trust, William Hill and Virgin Trains. The system has so far detected 5,500 serious cyber incidents.

Darktrace is a collaboration between mathematicians from the University of Cambridge and ex-British intelligence experts from MI5 and The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ)

Darktrace approaches computer systems as living organisms. In humans, skin is key to keeping bacteria out, but internally it is constantly fighting other health threats. Orton describes the immune system as continually learning “what’s part of me, what’s not part of me,” and “identifying things that are going to be a problem all of the time.”

Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System works on this theory – it builds a pattern of health for an organisation.
