Darktrace, a global leader in cyber security AI, today announced that it has won the AI & Machine Learning Award at the 2022 Go:Tech Awards.
Backed by Business Leader, one of the UK’s leading business titles, the annual Go:Tech Awards celebrate the UK’s tech pioneers and innovators. Darktrace was named winner in the AI & Machine Learning category, an award which showcases pioneers in the artificial intelligence space.
Darktrace was the first to apply artificial intelligence to the challenge of cyber security when it brought ‘Self-Learning AI’ to market in 2013.

Today, the technology defends more than 6,800 organizations in over 110 countries against advanced cyber-threats.
Darktrace has its roots in Cambridge, where its AI Research Centre came close to doubling its development team in FY2021.
