Cyber-attack has become the most significant risk facing today’s businesses, smart cities, and critical infrastructure, with the total cost of online crime projected to surpass one trillion dollars in 2019. At the heart of this crisis is none other than the traditional approach to cyber defense, which relies on rules and signatures to detect known threats at a time when cyber-criminals launch never-before-seen attacks on a daily basis.
To keep pace with the ever-evolving threat landscape, Darktrace employs a fundamentally different approach — one rooted in artificial intelligence. Rather than attempting in vain to predefine what the next novel attack will look like, Darktrace AI instead learns a unique ‘pattern of life’ for every user, device, and network that it safeguards. With this understanding of ‘self’ versus ‘not self,’ Darktrace can detect the subtly anomalous behavior indicative of both known and unknown attacks, allowing defenders to finally fight back against their online adversaries.
