Darktrace was created in 2013 by top mathematicians from the University of Cambridge and senior members of the US and UK governments’ cyber communities, from the NSA, CIA, MI5 and GCHQ. It is now recognized as the world’s leading AI company for cyber security.
Modelled on the human immune system, Darktrace’s ‘Enterprise Immune System’ makes use of the world’s most advanced machine learning technology for cyber defence. The technology monitors customer networks learning about the typical behaviour of every individual device and user on the network. Upon establishing a ‘unique pattern-of-life’ for the habits of every user and device, Darktrace will utilize its knowledge of the device’s and user’s pattern-of-life to identify abnormal behaviour. In the same way the human immune system has no prior knowledge of a threatening germs that enter the body, Darktrace’s enterprise immune system requires no previous knowledge of malware or malware signatures to fight against attacks inside the network. By analysing ‘normal’ behaviour, Darktrace can spot emerging threats and neutralize them – just like a human immune system.
