Telstra strengthens internal security with Darktrace

By

Telstra has selected next-generation, cyber-threat detection technology from Darktrace to strengthen its internal security and defence strategy.

Darktrace CEO Nicole Eagan, said Telstra decided to deploy the company’s Enterprise Immune System across its enterprise network because of its unique capability to spot abnormal behaviours in real-time within the organisation.

Powered by machine learning and mathematics developed at the University of Cambridge, UK, Darktrace detects in-progress cyber-threats and then alerts the organisation.

Eagan said that, in addition, Darktrace’s Threat Visualiser enables prompt investigations, triages, response and risk mitigation “allowing Telstra to keep pace with today’s dynamic business environment”.

The partnership sees Darktrace appliances installed across Telstra’s enterprise data network, with the Telstra discovery and security teams using the distributed Darktrace Enterprise Immune System to achieve greater visibility of unusual behaviours and movement within its online environment.

With the deployment, Telstra will now be able to investigate, respond and reduce the time to triage, whilst minimising potential impact.

“We are delighted to join forces with Darktrace to bring new, innovative technology to the cyber security challenge that all organisations are faced with,” said Mike Burgess, CISO Telstra.

“Darktrace’s technology is unique in its ability to rapidly detect anomalous activity, irrespective of whether the behaviours are ‘known’ or ‘unknown’, as well as being able to visualise all network activity.

“By reducing the time taken to detect potential threats, Darktrace is strengthening Telstra’s internal security.”

Eagan said “Darktrace and Telstra share a common vision for the future of cyber defence, based on understanding and knowing your organisation better than your adversary and using next-generation machine learning to automate the process of subtle threat detection.”
