Darktrace Antigena Expands Its Network Radius
Darktrace launches new modules to its autonomous response product, Darktrace Antigena, to expand its network coverage to cloud (AWS and Azure), email (Office365), and SaaS applications.
“These new modules further enhance Antigena’s capabilities, enabling us to stop email and cloud attacks in real time,” commented Matt Wood, Global Information Security Manager at Trek, a Darktrace customer. “You can’t have humans fighting the attackers – threats simply move too fast. Darktrace AI fights back on our behalf, buying valuable time back for the team and enabling us to focus on more strategic tasks.”
The major benefit of Darktrace Antigena is having diverse tools sandwiched into one product (i.e. vendor consolidation). Working in part as a network traffic analysis detector and mitigator, as well as an endpoint security solutionand anti-phishing tool, the product offers large coverage of protecting even the most complex environments. The new modules improve the product’s security capabilities and offload significant manual labor on the security team, enabling them to work on initiatives that require human intervention. From me, that’s a big thumbs up, Darktrace.
