Darktrace, a global leader in cybersecurity AI, has announced that its Australian business has grown significantly over the past year as more organisations have adopted an AI-driven approach to cyberdefence.
The number of Darktrace customers in Australia has grown by over 60% in the last 12 months across all industry sectors. Customers include Steadfast Group, WIN Corporation, Girton Grammar School, Holman Webb Lawyers and Chemist Warehouse Australia. In addition, Darktrace’s employee headcount across its offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth has doubled in the same time period.
Powered by Self-Learning AI, Darktrace’s technology is capable of interrupting cyberattacks in real time, by learning the normal ‘pattern of life’ for an organisation. The AI works by identifying the emerging signs of a cyberthreat and taking targeted action to stop the disruption.
“During a challenging period of rapid digital change and attacker innovation, Darktrace’s ability to detect and respond to cyberthreats across our entire digital business has been a fundamental game changer for our organisation,” said Nathan Hillery, Chief Information Officer, Steadfast Group. “Because the technology is self-learning, it constantly revises its understanding of what is ‘normal’ for our organisation, making us confident that even the most novel and sophisticated attacks will be spotted and instantly stopped – wherever they strike.”Click below to share this article
