Darktrace, the leader in Enterprise Immune System technology, has today announced that it has been named on the Red Herring Top 100 List, which celebrates Europe’s most promising private technology ventures.

Darktrace was selected from a pool of over 1,200 companies across Europe after a rigorous process that looks at all aspects of the company. The Red Herring Top 100 awards are widely regarded as one of the industry’s most prestigious recognitions. Darktrace was named a winner thanks to its disruptive solution for cyber defense, technological advantage, and stellar growth.

The Enterprise Immune System is the world’s first and only proven technology capable of detecting and fighting back against emerging cyber-threats in real time. Leveraging advances in machine learning and probabilistic mathematics, the AI algorithms self-learn the normal ‘pattern of life’ of a network and use that understanding to spot and neutralize threatening anomalies, including subtle and stealthy, never-seen-before attacks.

“We are delighted that Darktrace has been named a Red Herring Top 100 winner,” said Poppy Gustafsson, CEO EMEA, Darktrace. “Proven across over 2,400 deployments worldwide, our ‘immune system’ approach has transformed cyber. This esteemed accolade further highlights our technological advantage – the Enterprise Immune System delivers on the promise of true AI in cyber, making Darktrace’s technology virtually impossible to replicate.”
