Darktrace, the world’s leading cyber AI company, has today announced that its Cyber AI Analyst technology has won the 2021 Business Intelligence Group (BIG) Award for Innovation. The annual awards program recognizes the organizations, products and people that bring new ideas to life.

Cyber AI Analyst is the world’s first AI-powered security analyst. Using supervised and unsupervised machine learning, the technology automatically investigates threats at machine speed, producing easy-to-read security reports that can be actioned in minutes. The technology delivers a 92% time saving and currently performs over 1.4 million security investigations per week.

In 2019, Cyber AI Analyst was responsible for automatically investigating the activity of nation-state threat group APT41, helping organizations protect themselves against the most sophisticated attacks before the attacker group had even been named.

“More than ever, the global society relies on innovation to help progress humanity and make our lives more productive, healthy and comfortable,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Operating Officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring Darktrace as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress.”
