Darktrace, the world leader in innovative, next-generation cyber defense technology, and Sayers, a leading client-focused provider of hardware and software products, have partnered to offer Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System technology as part of Sayers’s Security and Mobility practice.

Sayers understands the business and budgetary challenges that its clients face, and helps balance the need for security and productivity to identify the most appropriate and effective solution for its customers. Sayers’s expertise enables companies to secure and optimize its technology, and provides visibility across the technology spectrum, including mobile devices, end points, networks, virtualized environments and data centers.

The company is also implementing Darktrace’s technology within its own internal networks, to benefit from Enterprise Immune System protection of its data systems and users, and ensure that it remains at the cutting edge of technology innovation and cyber defense.

Darktrace Cyber Intelligence Platform (DCIP), powered by Enterprise Immune System technology, takes a mathematical, probabilistic approach to external and insider cyber threats. DCIP analyzes all information inside the network and adaptively learns the normal patterns of life for every user, device and the enterprise as a whole. Darktrace is therefore able to detect behavioral anomalies that have not been previously identified in real time, allowing organizations to take timely action against emerging threats. Threat analysts interact with this unique platform through Darktrace’s Threat Visualizer, a powerful 3D visualization interface that provides a state-of-the-art overview of the network and allows customers to view emerging security incidents, move forward and back in time to analyze suspicious activity and take remedial actions.

Sayers exists to help clients solve business challenges with innovative IT solutions. Together, Sayers and Darktrace bring to the market an innovative ‘immune system’ approach and disruptive technology, based on core probabilistic mathematics, machine learning and 3D visualization.
