What Can Cyber AI Do For Your Business?

While traditional defenses continue to define the threat in advance, Darktrace focuses instead on learning the normal ‘pattern of life’ for individual businesses and spotting subtle deviations indicative of a threat. Like the human immune system, the technology learns ‘on the job’, from the data and activity that it observes in situ. This means making billions of probability-based calculations in light of new evidence and continuously learning as the business evolves.

The threats that infiltrate your organization will typically not be historical attacks, but rather novel threats that have evaded existing defenses, or inappropriately behaving employees and third parties. By learning a sense of ‘self’ for your entire organization, Darktrace’s immune system discovers subtle, previously unseen patterns and emerging threats that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Darktrace’s core detection engine uses unsupervised machine learning to build a dynamic understanding of ‘normal’ for each organization it safeguards. Rather than rely on rules, signatures, fixed baselines, or training data, the immune system learns from your constantly changing digital environment – forming a bespoke and multi-dimensional understanding of every user, device, and all the complex relationships between them.

This unique self-learning approach enables Darktrace to detect advanced attacks at an early stage, and well before they have time to escalate into a crisis – from a novel strain of ransomware or an insider attack, to a coordinated spear-phishing campaign or critical cloud misconfiguration.
