Security software company Darktrace and Samsung's IT services unit Samsung SDS have joined forces to develop cyber security solutions for Internet of Things technologies, including connected devices.
Samsung SDS’s agreement will speed up the rollout of Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System technology, which uses advanced mathematics and machine learning to take an approach to detecting cyber threats that is based on the human immune system.
Darktrace is capable of identifying new, emerging threats within computer networks in real time including insider attacks, ransomware, machine-based attacks, and unknown threat scenarios.
Nicole Eagan, CEO of Darktrace, commented: “Samsung is one of the world’s leading technology companies, and we are thrilled to be collaborating with them on developing an approach to securing next-generation technologies such as connected devices. As we seek to extend our presence in Asia, Samsung’s support will be valuable.”
Sung Won Han, Vice President Samsung SDS Cyber Security, added: “Darktrace’s immune system approach to the ever-increasing challenge of cyber security stands out and provides an opportunity for Samsung SDS to introduce a new solution to customers. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship as we explore new collaborations.”
Mark Lippert, United States Ambassador to the Republic of Korea said, “Cyber security is an important topic for the United States and the Republic of Korea. It is critical that our two industries continue to cooperate closely to deploy the best technology and know-how to cope with fast-evolving cyber threats.”
