Tesserent partners with Darktrace, the world’s leading AI company for cyber defence
Tesserent has signed a strategic partnership agreement with the world-leader in cyber Artificial Intelligence (AI), Darktrace. Tesserent will offer Darktrace’s market disruptive AI technology, alongside its suite of managed security services and delivered via its world-class Security Operations Centre (SOC).
Headquartered in San Francisco and Cambridge, UK, Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System uses machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to detect and respond to cyber-threats across diverse digital environments, including cloud and virtualized networks, IoT and industrial control systems.
“When we started evaluating the potential partnership with Darktrace, we were immediately impressed with their innovative approach to cybersecurity and ability to deliver results for top-tier global enterprises and financial institutions” said Julian Challingsworth, CEO of Tesserent. “Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System is adaptive and augments Tesserent highly skilled security engineers with AI technology for prevention and rapid response. Tesserent protects its customers with world class cybersecurity technology, backed by our team of experts and our state-of-the-art Security Operations Centre in Melbourne. The opportunity to empower our customer’s CISOs and IT teams with AI- enabled cybersecurity tools, is complementary to our Security-as-a-Service model and an area in which Tesserent strives to be leader. Darktrace has an impressive growth story and we’re really excited to be delivering this market leading solutions to our clients."
Modelled after the human immune system, the Enterprise Immune System leverages AI to develop a ‘pattern of life’ for every user and device on a network. Darktrace’s self-learning platform detects and autonomously responds to emerging threats in real time by generating ‘digital antibodies’ to neutralize attacks and prevent damage.
Darktrace’s unique AI approach to network visibility and rapid response is complimentary to Tesserent’s approach of managed security and threat detection.
Sanjay Aurora, Asia Pacific Managing Director of Darktrace commented: “The Asia Pacific region continues to be a strong area of growth for Darktrace and organizations need to be alert to tomorrow’s threats. As a widely-adopted Enterprise AI, we are excited to leverage on Tesserent’s expertise to further accelerate deployment of the Enterprise Immune System across Asia Pacific. Customers will have the ability to adopt cutting-edge machine learning technology and undertake complementary security operations centre (SOC) services by Tesserent.”
