The top AI cyber security companies

Ai is being frequently used in cyber security as a tool for seeking and fixing system vulnerabilities around the clock without needing rest, and with cyber criminals constantly finding new ways to infiltrate company systems, companies can’t afford to let their guard down.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at the top cyber security companies for Ai implementation.


The services offered by Darktrace involve analysis of real-time company data via machine learning.

This allows for examination of any deviations from usual behaviour, which may suggest that a company’s system is under threat.

A notable Ai-powered platform offered by Darktrace is the Enterprise Immune System.


A main focus of Sophos‘ cyber security services is on endpoint protection using Ai, which is carried out through its Intercept X Endpoint product.

Also offered is its XG Firewall, which leverages its XStream DPI engine. This is connected to endpoints via Sophos’ Security Heartbeat.
