Asia-Pacific boom for Darktrace

Cambridge-based cyber security AI world leader Darktrace has unveiled a bonanza of new contracts and customers throughout Asia Pacific territories. 

Headcount and office bases have scaled to accommodate the boom.

Darktrace reports that more than 500 organisations across Asia Pacific have now deployed its Cyber AI Platform. Home to some of the world’s leading innovators and emerging economies, leading organisations in Asia Pacific have rapidly deployed Darktrace’s AI. 

These include Australia’s leading retail pharmacy chain Chemist Warehouse, Taiwan’s largest taxi organisation Taiwan Taxi Co. Ltd, leading Japanese pharmaceutical company Otsuka Pharmaceutical, South Korean multinational company Samsung Electronics, Singapore-based Farrer Park Group and India’s premier media organisation Network 18.

Continuing on its path of unprecedented growth, Darktrace has more than doubled its headcount with more than 170 employees across 13 offices in Asia Pacific. 

To support the increased demand for Darktrace’s technology, the company has also opened new offices in Singapore, Osaka, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

Asia Pacific enterprises that have turned to Cyber AI ‘immune systems’ to identify and neutralise fast-moving cyber-threats include more than 60 leading financial services organisations (including global banks, stock exchanges, insurance companies and investment firms), over 30 leading government enterprises (ranging from regional councils to ministries), and over 15 of the region’s top telecoms companies.

Darktrace’s recent launch of version 4 of the Enterprise Immune System provides customers with the ability to seamlessly extend AI-powered threat detection and Autonomous Response across the entire digital enterprise – including cloud, SaaS, email, IoT, and networks. 

The latest launch also introduces Cyber AI Analyst, a groundbreaking advancement in AI that emulates human thought processes to continuously investigate cyber-threats at machine speed – reducing time to triage by 92 per cent.

Sanjay Aurora, managing director of Asia Pacific at Darktrace, said: “As Asia Pacific organisations continue on digital transformation journeys, Darktrace AI’s ability to secure diverse digital estates consisting of cloud and IoT devices has never been more important.

“Darktrace is a critical ally for Asia Pacific businesses as they adopt new technologies and face increasingly advanced attacks. The tremendous growth we have seen in the region is evidence of the unparalleled power of Darktrace’s Cyber AI Platform.”

Darktrace technology is now used by over 3000 organisations to protect against threats to the cloud, email, IoT, networks and industrial systems. This includes insider threat, industrial espionage, IoT compromises, zero-day malware, data loss, supply chain risk and long-term infrastructure vulnerabilities.

The company has over 1000 employees, 40 offices and headquarters in Cambridge UK and San Francisco in the US.
