Brief Overview

The Darktrace Cyber AI Analyst is the world’s first and only cyber solution of its kind. The result of over 3 years of research at Darktrace’s R&D center, the Cyber AI Analyst combines human analyst intuition with the speed and scale of AI. Using supervised machine learning to learn from world-class threat hunters, Cyber AI Analyst creates hypotheses about emerging incidents as a human would, which it then tests against its understanding of the entire digital enterprise, functionally “thinking” to arrive at actionable conclusions in machine speeds.

For thousands of organizations around the world including Inphi and CBS Interactive, the Cyber AI Analyst solves staffing shortages facing security teams around the globe. The Cyber AI Analyst cuts incident triage time by 92% for experts who see up to thousands of security alerts a day, enabling human analysts to focus on higher-level tasks.

Able to generate thousands of queries in seconds and test n-dimensional hypotheses at once, the Cyber AI Analyst compiles actionable intelligence around complex incidents at a speed and scale made possible only with AI. The result is a written report, ready for any executive to read.

In early March, Darktrace AI detected several highly targeted attacks across our customer base, before any associated security signatures for the attack had become available. Two weeks later, the attacks were attributed publicly to Chinese threat-actor APT41.

At all of the target organizations, the reports generated by Darktrace’s Cyber AI Analyst highlighted and detailed every aspect of the incident in the form of a meaningful security narrative. Even a junior responder could have reviewed this output and acted on this zero-day APT attack in under 5 minutes.

With thousands of organizations relying on Cyber AI Analyst, it currently investigates over 1.4 million security incidents per week.
