Darktrace, a leading autonomous cyber security AI company, today reported that its Canadian customer base has grown substantially over the last year, as organizations across the country seek to protect themselves from increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks.

Significant customer wins in Canada include global retailer Herschel Supply Co., leading Quebec-based brokerage firm Lussier Dale Parizeau (LDP), the City of Sudbury, non-profit United Way of Calgary and Area, and Canucks Sports & Entertainment.

Powered by self-learning Cyber AI, the Darktrace Immune System works by learning the normal ‘pattern of life’ of an organization and can interrupt in-progress attacks across increasingly complex digital infrastructures, including the cloud, email and home office environments. Organizations across the region have not only embraced AI to understand where threatening activity is happening, but also now trust the technology to stop attacks from evolving within a matter of seconds, before security teams are even at their desks.

“Darktrace technology unlocks the true power of artificial intelligence, as it is capable of not only understanding context on real life data, but taking intelligent action,” said Dave Cullen, Manager of IT at Entegrus Powerlines, an Ontario electricity distributor. “The visibility and the intelligence delivered by Cyber AI provided us with information and insight that generated significant ROI from day one.”

“Cybercrime remains the most common threat faced by Canadian organizations of all sizes,” commented David Masson, Director of Enterprise Security at Darktrace. “We are living in a new era of silent but deadly cyber-attacks, and increasingly automated threats against businesses and Critical National Infrastructure are no longer a human scale problem. That’s why we are seeing so many organizations turning to Darktrace’s breakthrough Cyber AI technology.”
