The technology was developed by Cambridge University mathematicians and is based on the principle that enterprise companies are always at risk of being hacked.

Darktrace enables networks to develop a sense of ‘self’ just like humans so that they can detect anomalies or viruses that are prone to mutate and spread quickly.
