Darktrace uses machine learning to identify and fight threats without the need for human input.

A British cybersecurity startup has raised $65 million in funding as part of its ongoing global expansion efforts.

Darktrace, which applies machine learning to enable networks to automatically self-defend against potential threats, has secured the financing from a group led by global investment firm KKR.

Additional support comes from existing investor global growth equity firm Summit Partners, along with new backers in the form of TenEleven Ventures and SoftBank-affiliated SB ISAT Fund.

Founded in 2013, Darktrace uses machine learning techniques initially developed by mathematicians at the University of Cambridge.

The company's latest product, Antigena, uses machine learning to enable networks to automatically self-defend against potential threats without any prior knowledge of new attacks which might be used by hackers.
