Darktrace joins A-list
Cambridge-based Darktrace, the world’s leading AI company for cyber defence, has been named one of Fast Company’s 50 ‘World’s Most Innovative Companies’ of 2018, alongside Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Instagram.
Darktrace was the only cyber security company on the list, and ranked third in the ‘Artificial Intelligence’ category.
Fast Company’s ‘World’s Most Innovative Companies’ ranking celebrates impactful innovation and recognises companies that are redefining industries and solving decades-old challenges.
“Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System slows attacks on computing systems by emulating the way humans fend off viruses,” commented Fast Company. “The AI-enabled platform embeds in a network, learns what behaviors are normal, and flags anomalies. It became more formidable last April with the launch of Antigena, which automatically stops or slows compromised networks and devices.”
Darktrace CEO Nicole Eagan (pictured) added: “Our talented mathematicians have overcome a massive engineering challenge by developing the world’s first technology that can autonomously defend complex networks against sophisticated cyber-threats from within.”
