DARKTRACE – AI Powered autonomous detection and response for every device connected to your network

Cyber-attacks targeting the financial sector are growing in speed, sophistication, and scale, and traditional tools prove ineffective against novel threats. The Darktrace Immune System is the only self-defending, AI-powered solution, covering the entire digital business (cloud, network, IoT, client) — detecting, classifying, taking surgical action against, and investigating in-progress threats without relying on human input. Darktrace provides 24/7 monitoring and response of all connect devices at a fraction of the cost of one full time staff. This frees up resources to further meet other business needs. This is a good time to explore since Darktrace’s fiscal year end is in June. Typically, their pricing is more competitive around that time.  Here is one of the many articles detailing its usefulness: https://www.darktrace.com/en/blog/how-ai-detected-a-hacker-hiding-in-an-energy-grid-within-hours-of-deployment/ Darktrace provides a free 6 week trial to prove its value.
