Darktrace has developed software that detects and counters cyber-security threats for customers as diverse as Ocado, T-Mobile, and the Church of England. It uses artificial intelligence to learn the behaviour of every user, device and application within an organisation, builds a picture of a normally operating system, then detects unusual activity that could indicate a malicious attack. It is reportedly valued at $1.65bn, with sales hitting £59.4m in 2018 under chief executives Nicole Eagan, 55, and Poppy Gustafsson, 37.
