Darktrace Releases Version 3 of its AI Cyber Defense Solution

Productivity boost for novice and expert analysts, and executives.

Cambridge, UK and San Francisco - Darktrace, a cyber defense AI technology provider, today announced the launch of Version 3 (v3) of its Enterprise Immune System.

This major upgrade of Darktrace’s flagship cyber defense platform focuses on ease-of-use for new security analysts while pushing the upper limits of AI for expert analysts. CISOs will benefit from new reporting features, while the security community as a whole will benefit from sharing previously unknown threat finds through STIX and TAXII.

In addition, a new Darktrace Mobile App and enhancements to autonomous response solution Antigena for firewalls and cloud make responding to attacks anytime, anywhere faster and more precise.

Updates announced today include:

 

  • Visibility & Productivity Gains: CISO Reporting and One-Click SOC View

Automated CISO Reporting provides executives with real-time results and trends. A dynamic SOC dashboard allows threat analysts of all levels to rapidly triage incidents, with the platform automatically presenting relevant information for decision-making in one click. Together these enhancements deliver unprecedented visibility to all levels of the organization and for all skill levels.

 

  • Autonomous Response Expanded Coverage

Antigena, the ‘digital antibody’ capability of the Enterprise Immune System, takes precise autonomous action against in-progress cyber-attacks in the network. With the new release, Antigena now expands its reach to the cloud and can take action – for example, if an employee attempts to steal data. Antigena can also take action at the firewall to stop attacks affecting a broad range of systems. The new Darktrace Mobile App integrates with Antigena, delivering threat alerts and allowing human security teams to respond whilst on the move or after hours.

 

  • Math & Machine Learning Enhancements

Darktrace’s leadership in math and machine learning continues to underpin its technology, allowing it to detect even the most subtle threats. Using a combination of unsupervised and supervised machine learning, Darktrace’s team of AI specialists have added new mathematical techniques, including novel deep learning, for detecting novel attacks including:

·        Additional techniques for low and slow attacks;

·        Rapid decision making for machine-speed attacks;

·        DNS tunneling attack detection; and

·        Correlating related threats to disparate infrastructure.

 

  • Share Threat Finds & ‘Ask An Expert’

When Darktrace identifies previously unknown threats, you can now instantly send it to Darktrace expert analysts to investigate and get a rapid response. Or if you want to share a threat discovery across your organization or with other external working groups and industry peers, Darktrace has added support for STIX and TAXII, helping to prevent repeated attacks.

“The skills shortage in cyber security continues to be a major obstacle to the strengthening of our customers’ defense capabilities, in the face of ever more sophisticated and automated cyber-attacks,” commented Nicole Eagan, CEO of Darktrace. “With the Enterprise Immune System v3, Darktrace delivers AI that not only finds previously-undiscoverable threats, but helps mitigate those incidents automatically. What’s more, we can now present those unique insights in the most intuitive and accessible way for all levels of analysts and executives.”

“In an age of automated attacks that move at machine speed, the difference between responding in 12 seconds and 120 seconds is critical,” commented Dr. Ron Torten, Senior Vice President of Operations and Information Technology, Inphi. “The combination of unsupervised and supervised machine learning is extremely powerful, because it allows the immune system to continue to uncover ‘unknown unknown’ threats, while also getting the best out of threat intelligence and human expertise. We look forward to using Darktrace’s new capabilities in version 3.”
