- To extend ‘Enterprise Immune System’ across Asia Pacific and Oceania
- Technology powered by mathematics and machine learning
DARKTRACE, which specialises in ‘Enterprise Immune System’ technology, announced a partnership with Singapore-based cybersecurity and network performance solutions provider M.Tech to bring its cyber-defence technology across Asia Pacific and Oceania.
M.Tech specialises in integrated and intelligent end-to-end security infrastructure management, working with market-leading solution providers to deliver best-of-breed cybersecurity to its customers, Darktrace said in a statement.
M.Tech will offer Darktrace across its customer base, as part of its network of 32 offices in 17 countries, including Singapore, Australia, China, Japan, Malaysia and New Zealand.
“The addition of Darktrace to our product portfolio is an excellent fit as it not only increases our product offering but also enables us to provide our customers with a comprehensive suite of cybersecurity products and services,” said M.Tech chief executive officer Stanley Foo.
Darktrace said its unique Enterprise Immune System, powered by mathematics and machine learning developed at the University of Cambridge, marks a new era of cyber-defence by detecting advanced external and insider threats within computer networks, in real time, without requiring prior knowledge or rules.
“The Enterprise Immune System fills a major gap in today’s security stack, which has traditionally been polarised between blocking threats, and reactively cleaning up after data breaches and compromises,” said Darktrace Asia Pacific managing director Sanjay Aurora (pic).
“We are delighted to join forces with M.Tech to extend our unique, self-learning defence technology to more organisations across Asia Pacific, helping them understand what is happening within their networks and defend against dynamic, advanced cyber-threats,” he added.
Darktrace was founded in 2013 by machine learning specialists and government intelligence experts, and is headquartered in Cambridge in the United Kingdom and Washington DC in the United States.
