Darktrace, the leader in Enterprise Immune System technology, has today announced that it was named Business of the Year at the Cambridge Business Weekly Awards last night in recognition of its stellar growth and fundamentally different approach to cyber defense.

Created by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge, the Enterprise Immune System uses advanced machine learning to automatically detect and take action against cyber-threats within all types of networks. Unlike traditional approaches that attempt to pre-define threats and stop them at the border, the Enterprise Immune System’s AI algorithms learn the ‘pattern of life’ of every user and device on the network and leverage that understanding to defend the network from within. The break-through technology has detected over 30,000 serious in-progress attacks to date.

“We are delighted to receive this prestigious accolade from Cambridge Business Weekly,” said Poppy Gustafsson, CEO EMEA, Darktrace. “The Business of the Year Award is further testament to the fundamental innovation behind our self-learning technology, and the phenomenal growth the company has seen. Our ‘immune system’ approach to cyber defense has really turned the industry on its head, and our 600% year-on-year revenue growth highlights our outstanding business model.”
