Darktrace Named One of Europe’s Fastest Growing Technology Businesses
Darktrace, the leader in Enterprise Immune System technology, has today announced that it has been named on the 2017 Tech Tour Growth 50 ranking. This list shines a light on the next generation of Europe’s fastest-growing, equity- backed technology businesses.
In putting together this ranking, a selection committee, composed of international venture capital firms, advisers and experts, researched and evaluated over 280 European private technology companies valued at under $1bn. These companies were judged based on their achievement, impact, and momentum.
Darktrace, which now has 370 employees in 23 global locations, features in the prestigious list for the second year in a row thanks to its phenomenal 600% year-on-year growth. The company’s flagship technology, the Enterprise Immune System, has been deployed over 2,000 times across 60 countries worldwide, and has detected 30,000 serious, in-progress cyber-threats to date.
