A Darktrace Case Study: ML Rising

The Darktrace solution effectively detects what legacy anti-virus solutions fail to detect.

Boston, November 6, 2018 – Even after two decades of evolution, legacy anti-virus solutions are still losing the war against malware because they identify activities that resemble previously known threats. But a new generation of intrusion detection systems use machine learning to identify cyberattacks and malware infections, effectively rendering legacy signature-based detection systems obsolete. Darktrace is one of many vendors in this growing cybersecurity market.

This report examines Darktrace’s ability to detect an active cyberattack on an international accounts receivable, debt recovery, and past-due-accounts services company. This report is the author’s firsthand account of the network penetration test and the intrusion analysis of the Darktrace product, which were performed over the period of two weeks.
