Since 2008, Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies has been the definitive source for recognising organisations transforming industries and shaping society. The editors recognised Darktrace as one of the top 10 companies innovating in the AI sector.

According to Fast Company, Darktrace was recognised for its Self-Learning AI that can defend against cyber-attacks "by forming an understanding of an organisation's machines, processes and people - and then springing into action when it detects signs of abnormality."

Fast Company highlighted the efficacy of Darktrace's Enterprise Immune System, noting that Darktrace reported none of its customers were ensnared when the ransomware gang REvil exploited a flaw in Kaseya in 2021.

Fast Company also underlined the value of the breadth of Darktrace's coverage areas from email systems to operational technologies (OT). Finally, the publication highlighted Darktrace furthering its innovation in AI-based cyber defenses by expanding its key partnership with Microsoft and doubling its R&D team at the Cyber AI Research Centre in Cambridge, UK.

"To be named as the only cybersecurity company on Fast Company's 'Most Innovative AI Companies' 2022 is a recognition of the fundamental power of our Self-Learning AI," commented Jack Stockdale, Chief Technology Officer, Darktrace. "The talented mathematicians, scientists, and AI experts at our Cyber AI Research Centre continue to push the boundaries of security innovation. We are well-positioned to deliver on the most ambitious technology vision in cyber security to date: the self-optimising AI loop."
