NCC Group Working with Darktrace to Combat Targeted Threats

Enterprise Immune System Equips Security Experts In Fight Against Targeted Threats

Cambridge, UK
Wednesday June 8, 2016

NCC Group is working with Darktrace, the leader in Enterprise Immune System technology, as part of its continued efforts to combat targeted threats.

The cyber security and risk mitigation specialist will use technology from Darktrace in its Security Operations Centres. The Group’s Cyber Defence Operations division, which is recognised for its capabilities in research, protective monitoring, breach hunting and cyber incident response, will also make use of the technology.

The partnership will see NCC Group’s security experts use the insight from Darktrace’s ‘immune system’ approach to provide comprehensive support for its customers, both proactively for ongoing defence and reactively following a cyber incident.

Ollie Whitehouse, Technical Director at NCC Group, said: “The Darktrace partnership complements our own research and development strategy around machine learning application in cyber defence scenarios.”

“We are acutely aware that with a greater number of targeted, skilled attackers at large, companies need to embrace the latest technologies to identify threats earlier than they might otherwise.”

Nick Trim, Managing Director of Darktrace in EMEA, added: “We are proud to be partnering with NCC Group’s industry experts to help drive machine learning to the forefront of cyber security.”

“The days of solely rules and signatures are over, as the battle is moving inside company networks. Organisations need to assume they will be compromised and proactively implement strategies to keep attackers at bay.”
