Minimizing Cyber Risk with Darktrace Self-Learning AI

Darktrace AI, Cyber Risk

Minimizing Cyber Risk with The Darktrace PREVENT product family empowers defenders to model likely attack paths, intelligently prioritize critical servers or highly exposed people in the organization, and test vulnerable pathways by emulating real-world attacks. Darktrace PREVENT then feeds data back into Darktrace DETECT + RESPOND to harden defenses around critical attack paths or assets and further enhance cyber resilience. For example, if Darktrace PREVENT discovers that a critical database is serving high-risk users, it can feed that information back into Darktrace DETECT, which in turn increases the level of scrutiny around that asset.

While Darktrace DETECT + RESPOND wrap what amounts to an ‘AI safety blanket’ around vulnerable assets and attack paths, Darktrace PREVENT presents prioritized recommendations for long term risk mitigation. Minimizing Cyber Risk Stretched security teams therefore know, based on Darktrace’s deep and evolving understanding of the entire business, where to focus their time and resources in order to reduce risk to the greatest extent.


Darktrace DETECT + RESPOND uses its deep understanding of your organization to tailor actions to individual threats. This means malicious activity is neutralized without affecting normal business operations. This is in contrast to automated solutions that rely on playbooks to respond to attacks, resulting in imprecise, heavy handed actions. Most successful attacks today are novel in some way – meaning configurations will not be in place to defend against them.


Darktrace’s Cyber AI Analyst was built to optimize threat investigation by continuously examining every security threat that arises. It illuminates the highest priority threats at any one time and rapidly synthesizes all of the context around an attack into a natural language report. The result is that time-to-meaning and time-to-response are dramatically reduced – allowing your team the time to use their expertise where it really matters.


Darktrace PREVENT empowers CISOs and security teams to shift from being reactive to proactive, getting ahead of the attacker and stopping attacks before they happen. It enables you to prioritize threats and vulnerabilities, optimize and harden defenses, and reduce the overall cyber risk to your organization
