Regaining the Advantage: How Cyber AI Neutralizes Never-Before-Seen Threats - Darktrace

To keep pace with an ever-evolving cyber-threat landscape, Darktrace employs a fundamentally unique approach to security - one rooted in the adaptive nature of artificial intelligence. Rather than predefining what constitutes threatening behavior in advance, Darktrace AI learns a unique ‘pattern of life’ for every user, device, and network that it safeguards, allowing it to spot the subtly anomalous behavior associated with sophisticated and never-before-seen attacks.
