Darktrace, the leader in Enterprise Immune System technology, has today announced that it has been named ‘Fastest Growing Cyber Security Company’ at the 2017 Cyber Security Excellence Awards.

Produced in partnership with the Information Security community on LinkedIn, the Cyber Security Excellence Awards recognize companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in the industry. Darktrace has seen unprecedented demand for its Enterprise Immune System cyber-defense platform which gains an understanding of a network’s unique ‘pattern of life’ and automatically detects and remediates threats at their earliest stages. Founded in 2013 out of pioneering research at the University of Cambridge, the company has seen 600% year-on-year growth with over 2,000 deployments across 60 countries.

“We are delighted to have received this award which celebrates Darktrace’s outstanding growth,” commented Nicole Eagan, CEO, Darktrace. “As the threat landscape evolves rapidly, we are increasingly seeing novel ransomware, IoT and insider threat attacks bypass legacy solutions to cause irreparable damage. Instead of trying to guard the perimeter, Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System technology learns about a network’s normal ‘pattern of life’ and detects and remediates anomalies to enable networks to inoculate themselves from within. We have seen massive demand from companies across virtually every vertical - our stellar growth reflects the strength of our technology in a booming sector.”
