Darktrace, cyber security AI company, has announced that its self-learning AI has been named ‘AI Cyber Product of the Year’ at the National Cyber Awards 2021, for the second year in a row.
Darktrace technology works by developing an understanding of what is normal behaviour for each user, environment and device within an organisation, and autonomously interrupts malicious behaviour as it emerges, without disruption to regular business operations.
The awards recognise the best organisations, individuals, and products that display a commitment to cyber innovation, cyber-crime reduction, and protecting citizens in cyberspace. The AI Cyber Product of the Year Award aims to recognise the technologies that are driving forward advancements in cyber security against the backdrop of an evolving cyber-threat landscape. Darktrace also won this award in 2020.
“To receive national recognition for Darktrace’s contribution to cyber security is an honour, and testament to the incredible strength of our unique self-learning AI technology,” said Poppy Gustafsson, CEO, Darktrace. “Cyber security innovation is a fundamental enabler for organisations and critical to keeping society resilient against cyber-attacks, and this award is a timely recognition of the innovation which drives everything we do at Darktrace.”
The company has also been named a 2021 Stratus Cloud Computing Top Organisation for artificial intelligence.
The Stratus Awards recognise companies and individuals that are pioneering cloud technologies, services and development.
“Darktrace is at the forefront of the cloud, helping to drive practical innovations in the cloud,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer of Business Intelligence Group. “The cloud is now part of the fabric of our personal and professional lives, and we are thrilled that our volunteer judges were able to help promote all of these innovative services, organizations and executives.”
“As modern consumers shift more permanently to the cloud, organisations that can facilitate and accelerate that transition efficiently and securely are more critical than ever,” commented Nicole Eagan, Chief Strategy Officer, AI Officer. “We are delighted that our industry peers are recognizing the power of our AI in securing our customers in the cloud. This award is validation of Darktrace’s unique self-learning approach, which allows us to prevent cyber disruption across all digital environments.”
