Statement regarding LockBit claims

Earlier this morning we became aware of tweets from LockBit, the cyber-criminal gang, claiming that they had compromised Darktrace’s internal security systems and had accessed our data. Our security teams have run a full review of our internal systems and can see no evidence of compromise. None of the LockBit social media posts link to any compromised Darktrace data. We will continue to monitor the situation extremely closely, but based on our current investigations we are confident that our systems remain secure and all customer data is fully protected.

Darktrace Extends Enterprise Immune System to Protect Dynamic Workforces

Read the story
July 1, 2020

Darktrace, the world’s leading cyber AI company, has today announced a range of new products and features that extend its Enterprise Immune System platform to endpoints, video and chat apps, SaaS applications, and identity and access management integrations to protect today’s remote and dynamic workforces.

New Darktrace Dynamic Workforce capabilities announced include:

  • Client Sensors extend visibility and detection to remote workers on or off VPN
  • Microsoft 365, Teams, SharePoint and Zoom visibility & detection modules
  • SaaS-specific AI models and Cloud Console to protect against data theft and insider threat
  • Email security modules for Microsoft 365 and G Suite
  • Integrations with Okta adaptive multifactor authentication and zero-trust solutions

Home working has increased companies’ risk profile, as employees may have broken policy or inadvertently exposed enterprise systems to new cyber-threats, while the number of attacks has ramped up. As offices start to reopen, security teams are concerned about workers who have been connecting to corporate systems from home networks bringing potentially compromised devices back into the workplace.

Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System protects the dynamic workforce by learning their patterns of work, even as they change day-to-day. Whether employees are in the office or working remotely, using Teams or Zoom, connecting to the Cloud or relying on email, Darktrace’s cyber AI quickly learns the ‘new normal’, adapting to fast-changing environments and automating and augmenting security teams.

J.R. Tietsort, Darktrace’s CISO for the Americas, commented: “As organizations reassess their working model in the months ahead, many are looking at how they can improve visibility and controls. Extending the Enterprise Immune System to endpoints with Client Sensors, and then further integrating with Okta, enables security teams to keep pace even as workforces change their patterns of behavior. Insider threat continues to be a risk area, so adding extra visibility and detection to collaboration environments like Microsoft 365 enables security teams to understand the full picture, regardless of workforce location.”
