Darktrace’s customer base in Australia grows by 60%


British American AI company Darktrace says its customers in Australia has grown by over 60% as more organisations are tightening their security defence. The company’s employee headcount in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth also doubled.

The number of Darktrace customers in Australia has grown by over 60% in the last 12 months across industry sectors as more organisations have adopted an AI-driven approach to cyber defence.

Darktrace’s employee headcount across its offices in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth has doubled in the same time period.

Powered by self-learning artificial intelligence, Darktrace says its technology is capable of interrupting cyber-attacks in real time by learning the normal “pattern of life” for an organisation.

The AI works by identifying the emerging signs of a cyber-threat and taking targeted action to stop the disruption.

“During a challenging period of rapid digital change and attacker innovation, Darktrace’s ability to detect and respond to cyber-threats across our entire digital business has been a fundamental game changer for our organisation,” attests Steadfast Group chief information officer Nathan Hillery.

“Because the technology is self-learning, it constantly revises its understanding of what is normal for our organisation, making us confident that even the most novel and sophisticated attacks will be spotted and instantly stopped—wherever they strike,” Hillery says. 

“We have reached a critical point where humans can no longer be expected to keep pace with the volume and sophistication of the cyber-threats that we are seeing,” concludes Darktrace director of industrial security APAC Hayley Turner.

“Our rapid growth in Australia signifies a sea change in the way that organisations across the country are approaching this challenge, leveraging AI to detect and fight back against emerging attacks on humans’ behalf,” Turner says.

Darktrace’s customers include North Sydney Council, Steadfast Group, WIN Television, Girton Grammar School, Holman Webb Lawyers, and Chemist Warehouse Australia.
