The judging panel, made up of 40 global experts from a broad spectrum of industry voices, recognized the fundamental innovation of the Enterprise Immune System in detecting emerging cyber threats.

Inspired by the principles of the human immune system, the Enterprise Immune System monitors large volumes of network data in real-time to detect anomalous behaviors indicative of potential threats and in-progress attacks.

“We are delighted to be named winners in three categories by Golden Bridge Awards for this esteemed industry and peer recognition,” said Nicole Eagan, CEO, Darktrace. This is a great accomplishment and acknowledges the ground-breaking innovation of Darktrace’s self-learning cyber defense technology.”
