The category of Enterprise Start-up of the Year is for the “best and brightest innovators” who are re-imagining how business should be conducted and whose solutions will change our working lives in the years to come.
Eagan added: “As businesses transition to intelligence-led, proactive defence against advanced cyber adversaries, Darktrace is set to accelerate adoption of its mathematical, self-learning approach, and help organisations take meaningful action against cyber compromises, before they become crises.”
