The United States Department of Commerce has carried cyber threat defence company Darktrace onboard to its cybersecurity mission in Tokyo, Seoul, and Taipei this week.
Darktrace is one of the 14 U.S. cybersecurity companies attending the mission in East Asia. The company will introduce its Enterprise Immune System technology to regional IT and critical infrastructure security leaders. The Enterprise Immune System establishes patterns on behaviour and identifies abnormalities to prevent network damage.
Darktrace is no stranger to the Asia Pacific region, with customers including telecommunications giant Telstra, a major New Zealand bank and an Asian energy company. By networking with government officials and thought leaders, Darktrace intends to strengthen links, increase its commercial presence and exchange valuable insights on state and private sector cyber security in the region.
"Increasing demands for cyber defence equipment and technology shows how cybersecurity is now a policy priority in East Asia," said Nicole Eagan, CEO at Darktrace. "We are delighted to be participating in this trade mission and look forward to sharing our Enterprise Immune System with Japanese, South Korean and Taiwanese markets to help defend against today's fast-moving threat."
