Darktrace

Detect And Eliminate Security Threats - Before They Occur

Dark Trace - transparent

Darktrace was founded in Cambridge, UK, in 2013 by mathematicians and machine learning specialists from the University of Cambridge, together with world-leading intelligence experts from MI5 and GCHQ, to bring transformative technology to the challenge of cyber security.

With this unique combination of expertise in mathematics, software and intelligence, Darktrace has delivered the world’s first operational Enterprise Immune System. Our leading-edge solution gives organizations the ability to detect emerging cyber-threats, allowing them the opportunity to proactively defend against in-progress cyber-attacks.

Of itself, the Enterprise Immune System is a new technological approach to cyber defense, based on the principal that organizations are unable to fully keep threats out of their network. Inspired by the self-learning intelligence of the human immune system, this new approach is delivered by cutting-edge technology that is capable of learning ‘self’ within an organization in real time – enabling it to detect emerging threats that bypass other security controls.

Cyber threats take many forms and are increasingly difficult to predict – like viral DNA, they mutate and evolve constantly in order to survive within their chosen environment. The human body deals with this problem through its immune system, which continually learns what is normal for our individual bodies and identifies outliers which do not fit that evolving pattern of normality.

Darktrace applies the same logic to the enterprise environment. Enterprise Immune System technology iteratively learns a pattern of life for every network, device and individual user, correlating this information in order to spot subtle deviations that indicate in-progress threats.

Our executive team has extensive experience in government intelligence and cyber operations and the protection of critical national infrastructure. This team is supported by a specialist cyber analyst team, with unparalleled experience of some of the most sophisticated threats in today’s complex security environment.

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, regardless of their origin.

Winner of 37 separate awards, including ‘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.
