Darktrace has announced that ransomware is the top use case of its market-leading Autonomous Response technology based on self-learning AI, as organizations face the increased threat of machine-speed attacks.
As sophisticated ransomware attacks continue to pose an existential risk to organizations in all sectors, Darktrace Antigena allows customers to take proportionate action to thwart all strains of ransomware, both known and unknown, in real time, avoiding costly shutdowns and business disruption.
Powered by self-learning Cyber AI, Autonomous Response is a world-first technology that rapidly neutralizes a range of novel cyber-attacks by taking highly targeted actions, while allowing normal business operations to continue as usual. Its self-learning technology isolates only the unusual data encryption activity associated with ransomware.
In addition, Darktrace has also announced that it has extended its Autonomous Response capability to enhance coverage of servers, allowing the AI to fight back against all forms of fast-moving attacks.
"The threat of ransomware was a key driver in our adoption of Autonomous Response technology," commented Leon Shepherd, Chief Information Officer, Ted Baker. "The ransomware that we are up against today moves too quickly for humans to contend with alone – the way we stay ahead is by having Darktrace AI fight back precisely and proportionately on our behalf.”
