About Darktrace

Darktrace is the world’s leading AI company for cyber defence. Created by mathematicians, the Enterprise Immune System uses machine learning and AI algorithms to detect and respond to cyber-threats across diverse digital environments, including cloud and virtualized networks, IoT and industrial control systems. The technology is self-learning and requires no set-up, identifying threats in real time, including zero-days, insiders and stealthy, silent attackers. Darktrace is headquartered in San Francisco and Cambridge, UK, and has over 30 offices worldwide.

Solutions /Products

Enterprise Immune System powered by advanced machine learning and AI algorithms, the award-winning Enterprise Immune System automatically and adaptively learns the ‘pattern of life’ for every user, device and network, to detect emerging threats in real time. This self-learning technology provides corporations with comprehensive visibility across their digital infrastructure, allowing them to proactively respond to in-progress threats and mitigate risk.

Darktrace Antigena represents a critical step toward a fully autonomous cyber security system, empowering the Enterprise Immune System to intelligently fight back against cyber-threats with targeted action. Based on the ‘pattern of life’ understood by the Enterprise Immune System, Darktrace Antigena creates ‘digital antibodies’ to stop or slow-down stealthy threats moving at machine speed. 

Why you should consider Darktrace

Threats of all kinds have proven capable of overcoming legacy approaches to cyber security. The explosion in the Internet of Things and growing prevalence of the cloud hails a new era of cyber-attacks. As we see the cyber-threat landscape evolve in unpredictable ways, a new approach is needed for organisations to manage their own digital complexity and catch sophisticated, never-seen-before threats. Inside the enterprise, employees and other legitimate network-users can accidentally compromise the network, or readily exploit blind-spots in traditional defences. 

Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System is the first non-consumer application of unsupervised machine learning to work at scale, across all network types, from physical, virtualized, and cloud, through to IoT and industrial control systems (ICS/SCADA). In New Zealand, Darktrace has been deployed in organisations of all sizes and sectors, from SMEs to some of NZ’s largest enterprises. A proven force multiplier, Darktrace’s AI empowers NZ organisations to detect and respond to genuinely threatening anomalies that other tools miss, before they do damage.
