A top five global player in the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) space has chosen Cambridge technology to protect its systems against cyber attacks.

Darktrace, a UK-headquartered world leader in Enterprise Immune System technology, is unable to name the client for security reasons.

The consumer goods giant has decided to invest more than $1m to protect its critical assets from all types of threats including zero-days, ransomware, and silent and stealthy insider and ‘trust attacks’.

Darktrace has grown in quickfire fashion to become arguably the world’s leading machine learning company for cyber security.

Created by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge, the Enterprise Immune System uses AI algorithms to automatically detect and take action against cyber-threats within all types of networks, including physical, cloud and virtualised networks, as well as IoT and industrial control systems. Powered by unsupervised machine learning, Darktrace is a self-configuring platform that autonomously learns about a network’s ‘normal’ pattern-of-life and detects anomalies in real time.

The Enterprise Immune System has now identified 30,000 serious in-progress threats in more than 2,000 networks to date.

CEO Nicole Eagan said: “As the volume and sophistication of cyber-attacks has increased exponentially, companies of all sizes and across all sectors are turning to immune system technologies for cyber defence.

“We have seen unprecedented demand for the Enterprise Immune System as the world’s first comprehensive AI platform for cyber security.”

Headquartered in San Francisco and Cambridge UK, Darktrace now has a network of 23 offices worldwide.
