Research Report: Email Security Threat Report 2020

by DarktraceAug 13, 2020

Email threats cost organizations an estimated $1.77 billion in losses last year. This threat report details 13 sophisticated email attacks — from impersonation attempts to spear phishing — that evaded standard defenses but were neutralized by Darktrace's AI.

E-Book: Antigena Email: Building Immunity for your Inbox

by DarktraceAug 13, 2020

94% of cyber-threats start with an email.

Antigena Email uses Darktrace's core artificial intelligence to stop the most advanced email threats, intervening to protect employees from the full range of threats targeting the inbox.

Rather than relying on static rules and historical data, the technology works by understanding the unique 'patterns of life' of email users and the complex web of relationships between them. This self-learning approach allows Antigena Email to reveal seemingly benign emails as unmistakably malicious.

Whitepaper: Darktrace Antigena: The Future of AI-Powered Autonomous Response

by DarktraceMar 17, 2020

With over 7,000 deployments across 105 countries worldwide, Darktrace's cyber AI platform has delivered the first proven, enterprise-grade autonomous response technology on the market: Darktrace Antigena. Like a digital antibody, the technology works by learning the normal 'pattern of life' for every user and device in the business and taking surgical action to contain in-progress threats in real time, before they have time to escalate into a crisis. This white paper will explore the critical challenges that security teams face in this new era of cyber-threat, and how Darktrace Antigena is leveraging AI to autonomously fight back against advanced attacks, giving human responders the critical time needed to catch up.

Research Report: AI-Augmented Attacks and the Battle of the Algorithms

by DarktraceMar 16, 2020

In discussions around the future of AI and cyber-threats, we often wonder when we can expect to see malicious or offensive AI attacks in the wild. While we have not yet seen conclusive evidence of execution, this report will show that all the tools and open-source research needed to facilitate an AI-augmented attack exist today. Therefore, we can anticipate that AI-driven cyber-attacks are not years away, but a very real possibility in the immediate future.

This report will document an end-to-end attack lifecycle, and how each stage could leverage elements of the AI 'toolkit' to improve and streamline the process. Attackers will, of course, evolve their tools to drive efficiency gains, however these tradecraft improvements areiterative and do not happen all at once. Furthermore, while it is likely that adversaries today are already leveraging AI in some capacity to improve individual attack phases, this report shows an end-to-end AI-driven attack purely as a thought experiment.

Research Report: Cyber AI: An Immune System for Email

by DarktraceMar 16, 2020

Email and collaboration platforms represent the connective tissue of any digital business. Information is shared, plans are hatched, and alliances are formed in the digital realm of written correspondence. Yet as a human-driven medium, email will always be fueled by a pervasive assumption of trust that stands as the 'weakest link' in an organization's security strategy.

Peter Firstbrook, VP Analyst at Gartner, summarizes the market dynamic well: "Common controls, such as standard, reputation-based, anti-spam, and signature-based antivirus, are fine for widespread attacks and scam campaigns, but they're not good enough for protection against more targeted, sophisticated, and advanced attacks. More than ever, modern email security requires innovation and a shift in mindset to combat the evolving threat landscape.

Research Report: Cyber AI: An Immune System for Cloud Security

by DarktraceMar 16, 2020

From small businesses seeking to cut costs to corporate innovation centers launching digital transformation projects, the large-scale journey to the cloud has fundamentally reshaped the digital business and the traditional paradigm of the network perimeter. As this perimeter dissolves, hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure has become a part of the furniture of an increasingly diverse digital estate, empowering organizations to push the upper limits of innovation while expanding the attack surface at an alarming rate.
