Darktrace detects over 18,000 serious cyber incidents
Cambridge UK cyber defence business Darktrace says its self-learning technology has been deployed over 1,500 times worldwide and that more than 18,000 serious cyber incidents have been uncovered to date by its Enterprise Immune System.
The technology leverages new machine learning and mathematics – developed by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge – to automatically understand ‘normal’ and ‘abnormal’ behaviours within networks.
Digital payment solutions provider Blackhawk Network, bicyle retailer Trek, and UK conservation charity National Trust, are just a few of Darktrace’s recent customer wins.
They add to a global client base spanning all industry verticals including healthcare, financial services, retail, transportation and manufacturing.
Geographical expansion continues apace, with 22 Darktrace offices globally, including new bases in Johannesburg and Reston, Virginia. Global headcount now stands at over 330.
Growth in Asia-Pacific has been particularly strong this quarter, with a 600 per cent increase in deployments, a partnership with Samsung SDS, and 100 per cent growth in the size of the regional team.
Nicole Eagan, CEO of Darktrace, said: “Darktrace has proven that it detects threats that would otherwise go unnoticed, and this consistent achievement is reflected in our rapid growth this quarter.
“Machine learning is critical to defending ever more complex networks, faced with a challenging threat landscape. Darktrace is the only company to deliver the true promise of self-learning technology, through the Enterprise Immune System.”
