If there’s anything that the continuous increase in data breaches has shown us, it’s that most organization’s security teams can’t keep up with the pace of modern threat actors through manual work alone.
It’s for this reason that more and more security teams are turning to automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to automate investigative tasks and alert triaging to detect threat actors faster. In fact, according to IBM, 64% of organizations have implemented AI for security capabilities so far.
In an attempt to enhance its existing security AI capabilities, Darktrace today announced the launch of Darktrace PREVENT, a new interconnected product family of AI products that uses AI to “think like an attacker,” to automatically identify an enterprise’s critical assets and exposures.
One of the new products, PREVENT/E2E (End-to-end) provides enterprises with attack path modelling, automated penetration testing, breach and attack emulation, security awareness testing and training, and vulnerability prioritization to help identify and mitigate cyber risks that exist in the environment.
Another, PREVENT/ASM (Attack Surface Management), uses AI to perform reconnaissance on a named target, to automatically increase transparency over shadow IT, the software supply chain and configuration errors.
Security AI’s role in the current threat landscape
Darktrace PREVENT”s launch comes as more organizations are struggling to keep up with the fast growing attack surface, with the company’s research showing that high-priority security incidents increased by 49% between January and June 2022 across its customer base.
“Darktrace’s latest product family is set to proactively defend organizations against the heightened volume and sophistication of cyber threats, which is making identification and prioritization of their most pressing vulnerabilities increasingly difficult,” said VP Tactical Risk and Response at Darktrace, Justin Fier.
“At the same time, security teams are contending with an ever-increasing volume of vulnerabilities, and they do not have the resources to fight on all fronts With the launch of PREVENT, Darktrace provides more predictive and preventi …
