Founded in 2013 by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge and government cyber intelligence experts in the US and the UK, Darktrace is recognized today as the world’s leading AI company for cyber security.
With deep expertise in mathematics and machine learning, as well as operational experience defending critical national assets, our founding team started Darktrace to empower organizations to defend their systems against the most sophisticated cyber-threats.
Darktrace’s pioneering technology, the Enterprise Immune System, applies AI to the cyber defense challenge for the first time, and has proven itself successful in detecting cyber-threats that existing, legacy systems cannot.
It quickly became clear that the technology was powerful enough to identify a diverse range of threats at their earliest stages – including insider attacks, latent vulnerabilities, cloud-based threats and even state-sponsored espionage.
Darktrace is headquartered in San Francisco and Cambridge, UK, with 40 offices globally and over 800 employees. It is privately owned, with investors including KKR, Talis Capital, Hoxton Ventures, Summit Partners, TenEleven, Samsung Ventures, Invoke Capital, and Insight Venture Partners.
