Darktrace announced the availability of Darktrace PREVENT/OT, a product that identifies the paths adversaries may take to attempt to disrupt the operations of critical infrastructure. This unique approach uses AI to “think like an attacker” to visualize pathways within information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) that lead to critical infrastructure assets, empowering defenders to harden environments and stay steps ahead of the adversary.
PREVENT/OT is part of the Darktrace/OT product family, protecting complex industrial environments against known and unknown attacks, using self-learning AI to discover and identify assets and detect subtle deviations that point to a cyber-threat. First launched in 2015, Darktrace/OT DETECT and RESPOND™ are currently used by hundreds of critical infrastructure companies in utilities including electric, water, oil & gas, maritime, and transportation.
The company signed several new deals with critical infrastructure organizations across the globe in the last three months including new customers, renewals and expanded contracts within the critical infrastructure industry. Darktrace already defends customers across all 16 critical infrastructure sectors designated by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) in the US. The deals underscore a paradigm shift occurring around the globe that sees governments putting in place new mandates and rules requiring more robust cyber protections in critical industries, including healthcare, financial services, energy and chemicals.
