Darktrace

Darktrace is the world’s leading machine learning company for cyber security.

Created by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge, Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System uses AI algorithms that mimic the human immune system to defend enterprise networks of all types and sizes.

Our self-learning approach is the first non-consumer application of machine learning to work at scale, across all network types, from physical, virtualised, and cloud, through to IoT and industrial control systems.

By applying its unique, unsupervised machine learning, Darktrace has identified 63,500 previously unknown threats in over 5,000 networks, including zero-days, insider threats and subtle, stealthy attacks.

Machine Learning

Detects and neutralizes quiet, stealthy threats

Machine learning can be thought of as the third and most recent machine revolution. The first was the replacement of muscle by machine in the industrial revolution. The second involved computers taking over repetitive tasks that had originally been done by people. Machine learning represents computers being able to undertake complex, thoughtful tasks.

The fundamental technology underlying Darktrace is powered by advanced, unsupervised machine learning, which is capable of learning what is normal and what is abnormal inside a network on an evolving basis, without using training data or customized models. This allows it to detect cyber-attacks that may not have been observed before, the ‘unknown unknowns’.

Legacy approaches to cyber security embody the second revolution: people describe what an attack looks like and then ask the computer to look for a match to that description. Darktrace turns this paradigm on its head, embodying the third machine revolution: the computer autonomously finds anomalous areas within large data sets, and makes intelligent judgements accordingly. This self-learning capability is transformative, allowing organizations to embrace interconnected networks, while defending their critical data and reputation.

 

CyberRisk has partnered with Darktrace to bring this amazing security technology to Australia.
