SAMSUNG SDS SIGNS PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT WITH DARKTRACE

The Companies Will Develop Cyber Solutions For The Internet Of Things  

Darktrace, a provider of enterprise cyber threat defence software, announced today that Samsung SDS, the global IT services company part of Samsung Group, has become a regional partner. This follows the company’s recent investment in Darktrace. In addition to being a reseller and distributor of Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System technology, the two companies will work together to develop cyber security solutions for Internet of Things technologies, including connected devices.

Samsung SDS’s agreement with Darktrace strengthens the relationship between the two companies and will speed up the rollout of Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System technology. Cyber security threats are on the rise globally, and as attacks become more sophisticated, it is obvious that legacy approaches to the problem aren’t working. Darktrace uses advanced mathematics and has adopted a machine learning approach based on the human immune system to meet the challenge of detecting cyber threats before they can have a crippling effect.

Named ‘Best Security Company of the Year’ 2016, Darktrace is capable of identifying new, emerging threats within computer networks in real time including insider attacks, ransomware, machine-based attacks, and unknown threat scenarios.

Nicole Eagan, CEO of Darktrace, commented: “Samsung is one of the world’s leading technology companies, and we are thrilled to be collaborating with them on developing an approach to securing next-generation technologies such as connected devices. As we seek to extend our presence in Asia, Samsung’s support will be valuable.”

Sung Won Han, Vice President Samsung SDS Cyber Security, added: “Darktrace’s immune system approach to the ever-increasing challenge of cyber security stands out and provides an opportunity for Samsung SDS to introduce a new solution to customers. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship as we explore new collaborations.”

Mark Lippert, United States Ambassador to the Republic of Korea said, “Cyber security is an important topic for the United States and the Republic of Korea. It is critical that our two industries continue to cooperate closely to deploy the best technology and know-how to cope with fast-evolving cyber threats.”

Founded in 2013, Darktrace has grown rapidly to 300 employees and has achieved over 600% revenue growth in its latest financial year. With over 1,200 customer deployments, Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System has been selected by some of the largest and most sensitive cyber security environments, including global financial institutions, telecommunications networks, legal firms, retailers, technology companies, government organizations, and critical national infrastructure facilities. Darktrace’s innovative technology has led the company to be named a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum and a Winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation.
