UAE logistics giant takes Darktrace cyber solution

Darktrace Cambridge

Tristar, a major logistics provider in the United Arab Emirates, has deployed Cambridge company Darktrace’s AI-driven cyber defence technology to protect sensitive customer data and operational systems from attacks.

Operating in 18 countries, Tristar is a fully integrated liquid logistics solutions provider delivering services to the petroleum and chemical industries, Its core expertise is in handling hydrocarbons, lubricants, chemicals and liquid gases. 

From devices that monitor driver fatigue to warehouse bots, the organisation uses a range of innovative technologies. Tristar utilises Darktrace’s self-learning technology to gain fundamental visibility across its complex digital infrastructure, detecting novel threats that other tools miss.

Adam Lalani, group head of IT at Tristar, said: “Digitising our operations is vital for the growth of our business. IoT brings about a huge opportunity for us to optimise our services but also introduces risks that are difficult to detect in a rapidly-evolving network.

“Wanting to keep on top of potential vulnerabilities, we deployed Darktrace’s AI and have not looked back. The Enterprise Immune System does the legwork for us, spotting genuine threats in real time, enabling us to respond before they escalate.”

Darktrace was founded in 2013 by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge and government cyber intelligence experts in the US and the UK. It recently joined the growing band of Cambridge unicorns – businesses with a market cap over $1bn.
