Darktrace's Cyber AI Loop™ Wins 'AI-based Cyber Security Solution of the Year' in the 2022 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards

Cambridge, UK
October 7, 2022

Darktrace, a global leader in cyber security artificial intelligence, today announced that its industry-first Cyber AI Loop has been named ‘AI-based Cyber Security Solution of the Year’ in the ‘Cyber Security Leadership’ category of the 2022 annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards.

Now in its 6th year, the US-based program honors excellence and innovation in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection and Risk Management. The 2022 contest attracted more than 4,000 nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world and exemplifies the best in security solutions across the globe.

The industry-first Cyber AI Loop is a set of capabilities which work together autonomously to optimize an organization’s state of security through a continuous feedback loop. This always-on feedback system with a deep, interconnected understanding of the enterprise creates a virtuous cycle in which each capability strengthens and hardens the entire security ecosystem. It allows organizations to not just prevent, detect, respond, and heal from cyber-attacks– but to do these all at once.

With the recent roll out of the Darktrace PREVENT™ product family, Darktrace is empowering security teams to identify, prioritize, and test vulnerabilities, reducing risk and hardening defenses both inside the organization and outside on the attack surface – continuously and autonomously.

PREVENT uses AI to “think like an attacker,” finding pathways to an organization’s most critical assets from the inside and outside. The algorithms analyze the most disruptive attacks for an organization and feed that information back into Darktrace DETECT™ and Darktrace RESPOND™ to support continuous learning and automation to harden systems.

“Whether it’s DDoS attacks, ransomware, malware, Business Email Compromise, IoT-based attacks, or something we’ve yet to see, our 2022 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award winners are at the forefront in this new threat landscape - enabling their customers to prevent and mitigate the impact of cyber events, said James Johnson, Managing Director at CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “We extend a hearty congratulations to our ‘breakthrough’ cyber security innovators taking home a CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award this year.”

“The launch of Darktrace PREVENT in July represented much more than a release of products to the market; it represented a fundamental shift in how we think about cyber security and this is reflected in the huge demand we are seeing for these proactive capabilities. We are honored that that is being recognized by the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards today,” said Justin Fier, VP, Tactical Risk and Response at Darktrace. “CISOs want solutions that prioritize cyber risks and mitigate business risk by autonomously hardening their environments and we are proud to be leading that next generation of cyber security.”
