What is Darktrace Antigena Network?

Darktrace Antigena is an active self-defence product that extends Darktrace’s core power of detection, replicating the function of digital antibodies that identify and neutralise threats and viruses.

"With this automated response capability, organisations can respond to threats faster, without disrupting the normal pattern of business activity."

How does it work?

Working in parallel, the Darktrace Enterprise Immune System identifies suspicious activity, triggering Antigena to respond in real time, depending on the severity of the threat. 

This may include slowing down a connection identified as the route of the attack or switching it off completely, quarantining users, systems or devices as required, or marking specific content for further investigation.

Antigena by no means makes security teams redundant. Skilled professionals will always be critical to enterprise security; the role of Antigena is to get there first and take measured action to mitigate risks before the human arrives on the scene. 

Attacks are becoming more aggressive, so defences need to directly fight back at machine speed. With Antigena, Security Analysts are given a vital time window in which to take action.
