Darktrace & Exclusive Networks Partner Against Next Generation Cyber Attacks

Wednesday April 23, 2014

Exclusive Networks has today announced a distribution agreement with Darktrace to bring the company's unique Behavioural Cyber Defence platform to market via a select group of security integrators. The pan-EMEA agreement, spearheaded out of the UK, exposes Exclusive Networks' partner community to the advanced detection science needed to protect against the new generation of complex cyber attacks.

"Darktrace has attracted attention for its strong investor backing and a leadership team drawn from the UK intelligence services. The company blends years of operational experience with new branches of Bayesian mathematics to produce a genuinely innovative solution for major enterprises: the ability to detect subtle traces of unique new threats within huge swathes of data," said Graham Jones, Joint Country Manager at Exclusive Networks UK. "With all our activity around CARM over the last 12 months, it was a logical step to work together. Darktrace's unique ability to look deep inside the network and learn is very complementary to our existing technologies."

CARM, or Cyber Attack Remediation & Mitigation, is a unique integrated platform that combines the best of breed capabilities of a number of vendors, and focuses on the post-breach issues enterprises face following a cyber attack. CARM enables enterprises to identify, contain, respond, remediate and ultimately mitigate the impact of the breach faster and more efficiently than ever before.

"Exclusive understands the market opportunity for Darktrace, given its fundamentally new approach to cyber security. Powered by best-of-class, probabilistic mathematics, Darktrace is capable of spotting previously unidentified threats in real time," said Andrew France, CEO of Darktrace. "It will be Exclusive Networks' task to accelerate our connections with partners that have the right technical skills and the optimum relationships with customers. All our partner relationships are strategic and hence highly selective."

Both Darktrace (Stand N87) and Exclusive Networks UK (Stand E65) are exhibiting at the Infosecurity Europe event in London from 29th April to 1st May. Exclusive Networks is also undertaking a series of dedicated events for prospective Darktrace partners.
