Darktrace becomes a member of Microsoft association

Autonomous cybersecurity AI company Darktrace has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association to better defend against cyber attacks.

Darktrace has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of independent software vendors and Managed Security Services providers that have integrated their security products with Microsoft's to better defend against increasing cyber-threats.

Darktrace was nominated to join for seamlessly integrating its autonomous detection, investigation and response capabilities into a number of Microsoft cloud and SaaS environments, and was named Microsoft's 'Security Trailblazer' at the annual Microsoft 20/20 awards in May 2021.

Darktrace's Self-Learning AI learns 'on the job' to understand how an organisation operates, and autonomously responds to emerging threats to minimise cyber disruption. The immune system technology can be applied to  all Microsoft 365 products - including Microsoft Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams – to autonomously defend joint customer environments from cyber-threats across cloud infrastructure and SaaS tools. 

Darktrace AI also proactively protects users of Microsoft 365 email environments, defending against threats such as sophisticated spear-phishing and supply-chain attacks. Combined with Microsoft's unlimited archiving, Self-Learning AI offers customers a watertight and efficient approach to email security, retention, and compliance. 

In addition to the ability to integrate with Microsoft Azure Sentinel, Darktrace threat alerts and automated threat investigation reports can also be sent and visualized inside Sentinel with a bespoke Workbook.

"We are proud to be members of MISA. Where Microsoft runs, Darktrace protects and together, we are empowering and augmenting human security teams with Self-Learning AI," commented Nicole Eagan, Chief Strategy Officer, AI Officer, Darktrace.

Rob Lefferts, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Defender adds: "Members of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, like Darktrace, offer solutions that supercharge defense work against a world of increasingly sophisticated, fast-moving threats. The integration of Microsoft 365 with their solutions allows us to work together to help customers navigate the security landscape."
