The world's leading machine learning company for cyber security

Sector: Futuretech

Darktrace is the world’s leading machine learning company for cyber security, having developed AI algorithms that mimic the human immune system to defend enterprise networks of all types and sizes. Created by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge, Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System is the first non-consumer application of machine learning to work at scale, across all network types, from physical, virtualized, and cloud, through to IoT and industrial control systems. Installed as a self-configuring cyber defense platform, Darktrace continuously learns what is ‘normal’ for all devices and users, updating its understanding as the environment changes.

Traditionally, cyber security software relies on reinforcing the perimeter of the network and applying rules or signatures that identify known threats.

Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System uses AI algorithms to automatically detect and take action against cyberthreats within all types of network, including physical, cloud and virtualised, as well as internet of things and industrial control systems.

Modelled on the human immune system, it uses unsupervised machine learning and AI to detect threatening deviations from those considered ‘normal’, without relying on prior assumptions. Its technology then creates digital ‘antibodies’ to automatically fight back.

Darktrace was founded by a group of mathematicians from the University of Cambridge, and a group of government intelligence experts. It has raised over $100m (£76.6m) in funding to date, and the system has been deployed over 2,400 times across 64 countries worldwide and detected over 30,000 in-progress attacks.

Customers span all industries including financial services, healthcare, legal, retail, government and transportation.
