With cyber threats emerging every day, the need for a robust defense system that can detect, respond and investigate autonomously is critical for business resilience. This requirement led to iOM Lanka (Pvt) Ltd, a pioneering software company in the Asian region to partner with Darktrace. Darktrace is a global leader in cyber security AI, and the first to offer its Self-Learning AI technology to the local market. Thanks to this partnership, iOM clients are offered a free 30 day Proof of Value Darktrace trial to demonstrate the technology in an organization’s own environment.

“In this new era of cyber-threat, cyber defense that operates with rules and signatures is fundamentally outdated. With attackers constantly innovating, we need an approach that learns on the job, to detect even the most subtle indicators of threat and respond autonomously before any damage is caused,” commented Apurva Jain, India Team Lead for Darktrace.

Mr. Jitendra Daulagala, MD of iOM (Sri Lanka) says that “the reason to partner with Darktrace was that no other provider matched the ingenuity and self-learning nature of the AI that Darktrace’s solution offers. It is not surprising that this technology has been trusted by organizations in every industry worldwide.”  

Darktrace is the world’s leading cyber-AI company and the creator of Autonomous Response technology. Headquartered in Cambridge UK, Darktrace was founded by mathematicians and cyber defense experts in 2013. It provides a comprehensive, enterprise-wide cyber defense to over 5,000 organizations worldwide. The technology can protect cloud and SaaS, email, IoT, traditional networks, endpoints, and industrial systems. Darktrace is one of the fastest growing AI companies in the world and was named one of Times100 Most Influential companies in 2021.

Darktrace uses Self-Learning AI. Traditional AI uses large volumes of training data to find threats based on known indicators of attack. In contrast, Self-Learning AI learns on the job from data in individual business environments. Self-Learning AI is made up of thousands of algorithms that it uses for decision-making, and applied to cyber security, this means that it can identify and stop zero-day attacks as they occur. Self-Learning AI enables autonomous decision-making, without causing unnecessary disruption to the organization.
