Enhances Cyber Security Offering with the Enterprise Immune System
12 Sep 2017
Singapore-based Athena Dynamics (ADPL), a majority owned subsidiary of BH Global Corporation Ltd (BHG) (SGX: BQN), has today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Darktrace, the leader in Enterprise Immune System technology, to bring next-generation cyber defence to businesses. Impressed by Darktrace’s advanced machine learning and proven ability to catch and mitigate threats inside its own network, ADPL plans to support the expansion of the self-learning solution across Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region as its value-added distributor.“Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System has identified a number of threatening anomalies in the wider BHG network, which were missed by traditional defence systems,” said BHG CIO and Athena Dynamics founding CEO, Ken Soh.
“What makes Darktrace truly differentiated from the pack is the fundamental power of its machine learning, capable of detecting all manner of threats, including novel malware and fast-moving ransomware. Additionally, Darktrace enhances the efficiency of our day-to-day security operations ensuring nascent threats are mitigated swiftly, and allows us to better plan and enforce our security compliance procedures such as Disaster Recovery.” Leveraging machine learning and AI algorithms, Darktrace works by learning the ‘pattern of life’ for every user, device, and network. Establishing a sense of ‘self’ for the organization, the technology detects emerging threats within the network in real time, allowing the security team to remediate in-progress attacks quickly, including insider threat and ‘unknown unknowns’.
“As the Asian economy grows from strength to strength, local businesses need to look beyond yesterday’s attack,” commented Sanjay Aurora, Managing Director, Darktrace, APAC. “Proven across thousands of deployments, Darktrace is the world’s first and only AI technology able to automatically fight back against in-progress threats. We are excited to extend our transformative technology within the Asian market with ADPL.”
