Microsoft and Darktrace join forces to provide self-learning AI cybersecurity to users

Microsoft and Darktrace have announced a partnership geared towards providing mutual customers with self-learning AI that detects and autonomously responds to cyber-threats.

Today Microsoft announced a partnership with autonomous cybersecurity AI company responsible for creating Autonomous Response technology, Darktrace. This partnership will share Darktrace’s self-learning artificial intelligence across Microsoft environments, such as Microsoft 365 and cloud applications such as Azure Sentinel.

  • Streamlined security Workflows Darktrace can now be integrated with Azure Sentinel, along with a workbook that allows users to send Darktrace threat alerts and reports inside Sentinel. 
  • Data integration With one-click integration, users can now connect Darktrace’s AI detection capabilities to Microsoft Defend for endpoint. 

Clare Barclay, CEO, Microsoft UK, said: “As cyber-attacks become increasingly sophisticated, AI is adding a deeper level of protection in detecting these threats. The partnership between Microsoft and Darktrace will help keep organisations secure, enabling them to focus on their core business and customers.”
