Darktrace, the world leader in machine learning technology for cyber defense, has today announced that its total contract value in Latin America has increased exponentially since expanding business operations in the region less than a year ago. Already working with over 30 strategic partners across eight countries, Darktrace recently opened its first office in Bogotá, Colombia to meet the massive demand for the Enterprise Immune System.

From the first moment that we deployed Darktrace on the UDLAP network, the AI technology has not ceased to amaze me,” commented Fernando Thompson, CIO, Universidad de las Americas Puebla (UDLAP). “As with the rest of the world, Latin American companies must protect our most critical asset – information. Being able to autonomously detect and stop unfolding attacks at their earliest signs is an enormous feat, made possible by Darktrace’s AI.”

Since Darktrace’s expansion into Latin America, high demand for the company’s innovative technology has led to rapid growth. Organizations of all sizes, across countries like Chile, Peru, and Mexico, have adopted its AI approach to detect and autonomously respond to threats in real time. Darktrace’s partners in the region include GoTec, Amiggo, CastInfo, and Cadmo Soluciones.

Recent attacks around the world reveal that every organization must be prepared to protect its networks from sophisticated cyber-attacks,” commented Javier Ardilla Garzon, Director, GoTec Colombia. “Darktrace’s machine learning technology learns on the job and is the only solution that can keep pace with the ingenuity of today’s cyber-attacks.”
Amiggo selected Darktrace as a strategic partner due to its innovative technology and ability to defend the information of our customers across Brazil,” said Marcos Moraes, Founder and Executive Director, Amiggo Brazil. “Its machine learning technology enables our customers to identify threats such as ransomware, insider threats, data breaches, and more. The implementation takes less than one hour and the benefits are immediate.”
