Darktrace, the world’s leading AI company for cyber defense, has today announced the launch of Antigena Version 2 (v2), a major update to its AI-powered autonomous response technology.

As attacks become more innovative and automated, artificial intelligence is increasingly being deployed to fight back.

Darktrace’s autonomous response technology uses AI to take surgical action that stops high-severity cyber-threats within seconds. This buys the security team valuable time to catch up, as the crisis is averted.

In this second version, a new Email Module is made available, which enables organizations to pre-emptively protect email users targeted by email attack campaigns.

Within seconds of a malicious attack being detected, Antigena v2 not only stops the threat from escalating on the compromised device, but also stops other people in the organization from being hit in the first place.

As cyber-criminals devise ways to leverage AI that enhance the speed, scale, and automation of attacks, organizations need to fight back with AI to keep pace,” commented Nicole Eagan, CEO, Darktrace. “By using AI to understand ‘normal’ for every unique business, Darktrace Antigena v2 can neutralize even the most sophisticated attacks, before they have time to escalate into a crisis.”

Antigena v2 now includes:

  • New Email module that blocks threats at the point of entry
  • Autonomous response for cloud, network, and email attacks
  • Precise actions driven by new AI models
  • Orchestration with market-leading firewalls and switches
  • Greater visibility and control from the Darktrace Mobile App (v2)
