Overview

Darktrace is the world’s leading machine learning company for cyber security.

Created by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge, Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System uses AI algorithms that mimic the human immune system to defend enterprise networks of all types and sizes.

Our self-learning approach is the first non-consumer application of machine learning to work at scale, across all network types, from physical, virtualized, and cloud, through to IoT and industrial control systems.

By applying its unique, unsupervised machine learning, Darktrace has identified 30,000 previously unknown threats in over 2,000 networks, including zero-days, insider threats and subtle, stealthy attacks.

Attackers are always developing new exploits and attack methods—Metasploit penetration testing software helps you use their own weapons against them. Utilizing an ever-growing database of exploits, you can safely simulate real-world attacks on your network to train your security team to spot and stop the real thing.
