Autonomous Response

Security teams are overwhelmed. Fast-moving attacks like ransomware can cripple file servers in a matter of minutes. And with the sophistication of attacks growing, while enterprises embrace new and dynamic digital infrastructures, human security teams are unable to respond to digital threats fast enough. It is widely recognized that AI-driven, autonomous technologies are necessary to fight the new generation of cyber-threats.

Darktrace’s Autonomous Response technology, Darktrace Antigena, uses Cyber AI to calculate the best action to take to effectively contain in-progress cyber-attacks in the shortest period of time. Acting in seconds, it is critical in stopping the onset of ransomware and other fast-moving threats from inside your digital environment – whether on SaaS applications and cloud platforms, on the network or elsewhere.

Because Darktrace’s Cyber AI learns the ‘self’ for your enterprise from scratch and has a highly evolved understanding of what’s normal, it can also take immediate action against more subtle threats that have never been seen before, but that could jeopardize key systems or data.

“Cyber is like the human body. You need to accept the fact that you will get infected, but your immune system will detect these threats, fight them off, and reduce the impact.”
Michael Chertoff, Former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Like antibodies within the human immune system, Autonomous Response is highly precise in its approach, surgically neutralizing attacks while allowing normal activity to continue. By enforcing the ‘pattern of life’ of a threatening user or device, ‘business as usual’ is not interrupted, and the security team is afforded the critical time they need to catch up.

Autonomous Response AI technology by Darktrace is the first of its kind, and has been recognized by leading industry bodies, including the Royal Academy of Engineering, as a “pioneering innovation”.
