Forrester: The Emergence of Offensive AI

This report from Forrester evaluates the emergence of offensive AI, organizations’ current security practices, and how well prepared they are to fight off such attacks.

“Darktrace was early with its approach and, from a technology point of view, has managed to stay in the lead. Darktrace has a well-honed path into artificial intelligence. I think they’ve used it properly and harnessed it with a good user interface that allows them to respond quickly.”
Earl Perkins, Gartner
“The need for skilled analysts is increasing and outstripping the supply, even with all of the educational programmes available. Tools like the Darktrace AI analyst add power to the elbow; they’re a force multiplier for our scarce resource of human analysts.”
Jonathan Care, Gartner
“Darktrace’s approach is innovative because it helps deal with a number of pressing issues in the security market, as the technology addresses alert fatigue by generating significantly less alerts for analysts to triage. The technology can also detect active threats on the inside of a network.”
Craig Lawson, Gartner
“Unsupervised machine learning understands what constitutes ‘normal’ and ‘abnormal’ behavior based on what it learns. This enables Darktrace software to flag behavior that deviates from the norm regardless of where it originates — even from within cloud-integrated network.”
Zhi-Ying Barry, Forrester Research
“This is probably the best use of visuals I've seen. I can see how somebody who doesn't necessarily have the experience or the knowledge can really quickly look at the Threat Visualizer and say, Well that's where my problem is. That's probably the most important thing you can do in this space.”
Chase Cunningham, Forrester Research
“The customer has never experienced false positives in its environment. Every response action Antigena has taken since its deployment was legitimate [...] Darktrace’s ability to see and autonomously respond to the known knowns and unknowns is unparalleled by any other product out there and, with its expanded capabilities [in email] has ushered Darktrace to the leader of the pack in the network threat analysis team of rivals.”
Alissa Knight, Aite Group
“Darktrace thrives in complex digital environments, as the technology is adaptive and continues to revise its understanding of ‘normal’ in light of new evidence, enabling it to detect and respond to threats that other tools miss, while providing complete visibility across the digital infrastructure.”
Jonas Knudsen, IDC
“Darktrace’s Cyber AI Analyst quickly presents security information in a format that’s both elegant and intuitive. By automatically investigating security events, the AI Analyst helps reduce noise more than any other technology. This is an important development in the security industry.”
Christopher Kissel, IDC
“Darktrace’s system is constantly learning, and it evolves to react to new technologies and new threats. An enterprise will always be prepared for hackers’ capabilities. The technology is self-learning and requires no set-up; it identifies threats in real-time, including zero-days, insiders, and stealthy silent attackers.”
Jamie Snowdon, HFS Research
“The secret sauce for Darktrace remains depth and experience with unsupervised machine learning applied to its modelling of IT systems as organisms protected by immune systems.”
Dan Cummins, 451 Research
“Darktrace Antigena acts faster than any security practitioner could to prevent damage from attacks such as ransomware.”
Eric Ogren, 451 Research
“Darktrace’s ML implementation is superior in the marketplace. This leads to benefits to customers in terms of decreased labor and false positives, and increased reliability for automated responses. Their coverage for cloud-based solutions, including many SaaS apps as well as the full range of IaaS environments, makes their solution a top consideration.”
John Tolbert, KuppingerCole
“Darktrace offers a fundamentally different platform that’s powering an entire cyber defense strategy with AI and machine learning [...] Darktrace’s platform is one of the few cases where talk about use of AI in cyber security has turned into action.”
Mike Sapien, Omdia
“There is a need for technologies that provide enterprises with the ability to detect attacks that are underway based on anomalous behaviors whether entirely on their premises or in their cloud deployments. Darktrace enables such detection, and with Antigena it has added the ability for its customers to level the playing field somewhat by containing attacks until responders can root out their cause and eradicate them.”
Rik Turner, Omdia
