Software giant Microsoft has partnered with autonomous cyber security and AI firm Darktrace, in a bid to enhances threat detection capability.

The partnership is expected to build on Darktrace’s self-learning AI technology for cyber security within Microsoft environments, including Microsoft 365 and cloud applications like Azure Sentinel.

According to Darktrace, the partnership provides enhanced security across multi-platform and multi-cloud environments, automates threat investigations, and enables teams to prioritise urgent strategic tasks.

The reported benefits of this new arrangement include:

  • Cyber AI email security: Antigena Email — which uses Darktrace’s autonomous response technology to stop advanced email threats — will be hosted on Microsoft Azure and listed on Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
  • Simplified and streamlined security workflows: Integration of Darktrace’s services with Azure Sentinel, allowing users to send and visualise Darktrace threat alerts and automated threat investigation reports inside Sentinel. 
  • Seamless data integration: One-click integrations that allow users to connect Darktrace’s AI detection capabilities to Microsoft Defender for endpoint. 

“As cyber attacks become increasingly sophisticated, AI is adding a deeper level of protection in detecting these threats,” Clare Barclay, CEO, Microsoft UK, said.

“The partnership between Microsoft and Darktrace will help keep organisations secure, enabling them to focus on their core business and customers.”

Poppy Gustafsson, CEO of Darktrace, added, “I am proud to be partnering with Microsoft, bringing Darktrace’s Cyber AI and autonomous response into joint customer environment.

“Everywhere Microsoft runs, Darktrace secures.”
