CyberEdge Partners with Darktrace for Best-in-Class Cyber Threat Detection

Aliso Viejo, CA and Cambridge, UK
April 7, 2016

CyberEdge Inc., a UST Global Company, announced today their partnership with Darktrace, the leader in Enterprise Immune System technology, to deliver a world-leading cyber-threat detection solution. Darktrace is joining CyberEdge’s established Partner Program, extending CyberEdge’s proactive, intelligence-led cyber defense capabilities across its client base.

Modern criminal and nation state cyber-attacks can side step traditional defenses in multiple ways. For an insider, it’s often even simpler, as they already have keys to the locks. CyberEdge recognizes the challenges its customers face when it comes to cyber defense and has selected Darktrace, recently awarded ‘Best Security Company of the Year’ in the Info Security Products Guide 2016, for its machine learning and analytical cyber threat detection.

Darktrace is uniquely capable of detecting in-progress cyber-threats from within an organization without prior knowledge of the threat environment or the network. Instead, Darktrace continually learns a ‘pattern of life’ for every user, device and network, enabling it to adapt to evolving situations and spot fast-moving, advanced cyber-threats.

Most advanced threats have penetrated traditional defenses and are inside the network for over 200 days on average before executing an attack. To detect such threats, companies need a solution that does not rely on having already seen and characterized an attack. This means watching the behaviour of individual machines — including desktops, servers, mobile phones and tablets — and users over time.

“Darktrace’s unique capabilities complement CyberEdge’s intelligence-led cyber services, so we can now offer a highly effective vulnerability monitoring capability to address the advanced persistent threat,” said Tony Velleca, CEO, CyberEdge. “With Darktrace, we are able to detect unknown vulnerabilities from the inside out and evaluate vulnerabilities based on the most likely attack vector for our client, as defined by intelligence.”

“Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System technology is changing the way organization’s defend against the increasingly sophisticated and pernicious threats of today, using next-generation technology,” said Rob Sass, Managing Director, Darktrace. “We are looking forward to collaborating with UST Global to deliver best-in-class cyber solutions that respond to this challenging threat landscape.”
