Darktrace, the world’s leading AI company for cyber defense, has today launched version 2 of the Darktrace Mobile App. The new update enhances the ability for security teams to investigate in-progress threats and control Antigena autonomous response actions while in transit.

Powered by artificial intelligence, Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System is uniquely capable of identifying and stopping subtle and stealthy threats in real time. With 5,000 deployments across more than 97 countries, organizations across all industries rely on its self-learning technology to detect in-progress attacks missed by traditional tools – including insider threat, IoT breaches, and zero-day attacks.

Available for iOS and Android, the Darktrace Mobile App gives security teams the ability to easily access Darktrace after working hours or on the go. Designed to offer maximum flexibility, the Darktrace Mobile App increases the speed of threat mitigation by offering push notifications of in-progress threats. For the hundreds of customers around the globe relying on Darktrace Antigena, the Darktrace Mobile App offers one-click confirmation of autonomous response actions when in human confirmation mode – enabling organizations with the ability to automatically fight back against emerging threats.

Version 2 of the Darktrace Mobile App adds new features that provide teams with in-depth, detailed insights into their networks. The new update allows for even faster threat notification and mitigation, the means to locate external locations, and a streamlined authentication process. A full list of new features include:

  • Enhanced filtering and sorting options
  • New ability to search for devices by user credentials
  • Ability to locate external connections in Maps app
  • Real-time notification support for faster updates

Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System provides unparalleled performance defending our network against malicious cyber-attacks,” commented Christopher Zeller, Director of Information Security, Country Life Vitamins. “Armed with the Darktrace Mobile App, my team can instantly respond to in-progress threats and authorize Darktrace’s AI to fight back on our behalf – even outside of business hours.”
As unpredictable threats continue to evolve to surpass traditional defenses, stretched security teams have to constantly live on the defensive,” commented Nicole Eagan, CEO, Darktrace. “Adding to this challenge, we face a global cyber skills shortage – the industry simply lacks the professionals and resources to staff 24-hour SOCs. Heralding a new era of proactive cyber defense, version 2 of Darktrace’s Mobile App extends its AI capabilities into the pockets of security teams, enabling organizations to triage incidents and neutralize threats no matter what the time or situation.”
