Home Security Grant Thornton deploys Darktrace to boost cyber defence

Growth advisory firm Grant Thornton Australia, in partnership with managed service provider The Missing Link, has deployed the Enterprise Immune System from artificial intelligence cyber defence company Darktrace.

Grant Thornton says the solutions has been deployed to detect emerging cyber threats in real-time.

“With Darktrace, we were able to immediately capture, filter and present intelligent insights into our environment more efficiently than ever before,” commented Gavin Townsend, Information Security Thornton.

“The Enterprise Immune System not only augments our security team in detecting subtle anomalies, but is used extensively across IT functions and is openly discussed by our C-Suite. It is exciting to be leveraging a technology that is maturing well ahead of the curve.”

Powered by machine learning and AI algorithms, the Darktrace enterprise immune system learns the "pattern of life" for every user and device on the network and uses this dynamically-updating understanding to detect known and unknown cyber-threats, as they emerge.

Thornton said Darktrace AI was also capable of reacting against cyber attacks in real time, allowing the security team time to catch up.

“Grant Thornton Australia joins a growing number of organisations proactively harnessing the power of machine learning to tighten their cyber defences and discover unknown risks,” commented Sanjay Aurora, managing director, Darktrace, Asia Pacific.

“As the cyber security landscape intensifies, Darktrace enables enterprises to catch and stop all manner of threats, from machine-speed ransomware to low-and-slow attacks, before a crisis occurs.”
