The National Technology Awards celebrate the pioneers of new technology, helping to drive standards and encourage excellence. An independent panel of judges, including members from techUK and Deloitte, selected Darktrace’s disruptive AI technology for cyber defense as the best security innovation of the year.
As the old approach of using rules and signatures to stop threats at the borders falls short in the face of increasingly stealthy and sophisticated attacks, human security teams are consistently outstripped in their capacity to contain breaches before they have inflicted damage.
Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System leverages transformative machine learning and AI technology capable of detecting and fighting back the earliest signs of brazen, fast-spreading attacks. Modeled after the human immune system, the break-through technology self-learns the normal ‘pattern of life’ within a network and uses that understanding to spot threatening anomalies. In the event of a breach, the automatic response technology takes proportionate remedial action akin to sending ‘digital antibodies’, containing the infiltration before it has escalated into a crisis.
“We are delighted to receive this prestigious recognition,” commented Poppy Gustafsson, CEO EMEA at Darktrace. “Being named ‘Security Innovation of the Year’ at the inaugural National Technology Awards is yet another tribute to the fundamental power and innovation behind the Enterprise Immune System. Our self-learning technology is a true manifestation of the power of AI to transform cyber security by empowering organizations to stay ahead of pernicious, fast-paced attacks that routinely bypass traditional defenses.”
