Microsoft and Darktrace reinforce cyber defence across cloud

Two technology innovators with Cambridge bases and global impact – Darktrace and Microsoft – have joined forces to provide mutual customers with enterprise-scale, self-learning AI that detects and autonomously responds to cyber threats.

This collaboration amplifies Darktrace’s self-learning artificial intelligence for cyber security within Microsoft environments, including Microsoft 365 and cloud applications like Azure Sentinel. 

As organisations and workforces across the globe increasingly rely on cloud infrastructure and virtual collaboration tools, the partnership ensures that attacks can be thwarted by Microsoft’s solutions together with Darktrace’s autonomous Cyber AI technology.

The partnership provides enhanced security across multiplatform and multicloud environments, automates threat investigations, and enables teams to prioritise strategic tasks that matter. 

The partners are collaborating to help organisations in a number of critical areas including:-

  • Cyber AI email security: Antigena Email, which uses Darktrace’s autonomous response technology to stop the most advanced email threats, is now hosted on Microsoft Azure and listed on Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
  • Simplified and streamlined security workflows: Darktrace now integrates seamlessly with Azure Sentinel, with a bespoke Workbook allowing users to send and visualise Darktrace threat alerts and automated threat investigation reports inside Sentinel.
  • Seamless data integration: Darktrace one-click integrations allow users to connect Darktrace’s AI detection capabilities to Microsoft Defender for endpoint.

Clare Barclay, CEO, Microsoft UK, said: “As cyber-attacks become increasingly sophisticated, AI is adding a deeper level of protection in detecting these threats. The partnership between Microsoft and Darktrace will help keep organisations secure, enabling them to focus on their core business and customers.”

Poppy Gustafsson – CEO of Darktrace which was valued at £1.7 billion on its London IPO recently – added: “I am proud to be partnering with Microsoft, bringing Darktrace’s Cyber AI and autonomous response into joint customer environments. Everywhere Microsoft runs, Darktrace secures.”
