Discover High-Impact Attack Paths with Darktrace
06 April 2023

In the world of cybersecurity, it’s essential to understand the potential pathways that attackers might use to compromise an organisation’s sensitive assets. That’s where attack path modelling comes in – it creates a comprehensive map of all possible routes that lead to an organisation’s crown jewels, helping security teams prioritise and address risks.

Darktrace’s Attack Path Modelling solution stands out from others in the market for several reasons. Firstly, it considers data from the entire digital estate in real-time, continuously re-evaluating the model to provide up-to-date insights. Additionally, the output doesn’t require technical expertise to understand, making it accessible to a wider range of users. It’s also valuable as a standalone tool for vulnerability prioritisation, or as a component of the Cyber AI Loop for immediate and long-term benefits.

Thinking like an attacker is a key aspect of effective cybersecurity, and attack path modelling enables security teams to do just that. It highlights the series of steps an attacker might take to access valuable assets, helping teams to eliminate attack paths progressively and reduce the options that attackers have.

Darktrace’s proprietary Self-Learning AI models relationships and incorporates graph theory to understand the importance of users, documents, and relationships between them. Darktrace PREVENT’s Attack Path Modelling component identifies target nodes and calculates the shortest paths to these targets, weighting the results based on the likelihood of attack and the potential damage caused. This puts defenders ahead of attackers by predicting their moves before they can strike.

Ensuring that security efforts are part of a wider security ecosystem, rather than siloed efforts, is crucial to maximise the return on investments. Darktrace PREVENT’s Attack Path Modeling solution is part of the End-to-End (E2E) offering and integrates with Darktrace’s DETECT and RESPOND to harden an organisation’s security posture even when the team is unable to eliminate the attack path.

In 2023, cybersecurity leaders will move beyond checkbox compliance and insurance to invest in proactive measures to maximise ROI and demonstrate cyber risk reduction. Attack path modeling is one way to help security teams gain an advantage in the ever-changing landscape of cybersecurity threats. With Darktrace’s innovative solutions, defenders can stay one step ahead of attackers and protect their most valuable assets.
