Darktrace, the leader in intelligence-led Behavioral Cyber Defense, has announced that Sir Jonathan Evans has joined its Advisory Board.

Darktrace brings a fundamentally new approach to cyber security, based on revolutionary new Bayesian mathematics developed at the University of Cambridge and unique expertise in cyber security intelligence and protecting sensitive information.

Sir Jonathan is the former director-general of the UK's Secret Service, MI5, where he spent thirty-three years focusing on internal and domestic counter-terrorism and cyber-threats.

"As cyber-threats become more sophisticated and better-resourced, we urgently require a new approach founded on unique cyber expertise and pioneering technology," said Sir Jonathan Evans. "Darktrace represents a new thinking around the cyber challenge, which embraces the complexity of our environments and works to protect our most important assets."

"We are delighted to have Sir Jonathan join our Advisory Board," said Steve Huxter, Managing Director of Darktrace. "His unparalleled stature in the field of cyber operations is invaluable, and we look forward to working with him in this new era of intelligence-based cyber defense."
