Microsoft and Darktrace are collaborating to deliver customers with enterprise-scale, self-learning AI that recognizes and reacts autonomously to cyber-threats such as spying, phishing, ransomware, and supply chain attacks. Darktrace’s self-learning artificial intelligence for cybersecurity will benefit from this partnership in Microsoft environments.
Microsoft and Darktrace will improve security across multi-platform and multi-cloud environments, automates threat investigations, and enables teams to prioritize strategic tasks that matter.
Dan Fein, Director of Product at Darktrace, said: “Cyber-criminals will do whatever it takes. Daily, we see attackers impersonate CEOs or compromise vendors’ accounts to send out targeted, topical emails that look legitimate. As these attacks get more sophisticated, employee education and awareness are not enough. The answer lies in technology.”
“With a dynamic understanding of the business, Cyber AI detects subtle indicators of attack and stops novel threats on the first encounter. This capability is crucial in an era where it is impossible to predict where the next attack will come from or what it will look like. Our security products align perfectly with Microsoft’s, allowing us to build even greater confidence among our mutual customers that their business, data, and staff are protected,” he added.
Microsoft and Darktrace partnership
Microsoft and Darktrace are working together to assist organizations in a variety of critical areas, including Cyber AI Email Security, Simplified and Streamlined Security Workflows, and Seamless Data Integration.
- Cyber AI Email Security – Antigena Email, which utilizes Darktrace’s artificial intelligence to tackle the most sophisticated email threats, will be hosted on Microsoft Azure and listed on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
- Simplified and Streamlined Security Workflows – Darktrace now smoothly integrates with Azure Sentinel, with a custom Workbook enabling customers to transfer and visualize Darktrace alerts and Cyber AI Analyst incidents within Sentinel.
- Seamless Data Integration – Users will be able to connect Darktrace’s AI detection capabilities to Microsoft Defender for Endpoint using one-click integrations.
Clare Barclay, CEO, Microsoft UK, said: “As cyber-attacks become increasingly sophisticated, AI is adding a deeper level of protection in detecting these threats. The partnership between Microsoft and Darktrace will help keep organisations secure, enabling them to focus on their core business and customers.”
