Paris, France
December 13, 2016

Darktrace, the leader in Enterprise Immune System technology, announces that Saniflo has chosen to protect its critical information and market reputation with Darktrace’s innovative, self-learning technology.

Founded in 1958, Saniflo is one of the largest companies in the sanitary sector worldwide, selling plumbing technology for residential and commercial premises. The company is headquartered in France, with three production sites and 25 distribution branches, and over 1,000 employees.

As a market leader, Saniflo’s patents and intellectual property are critical to protect, both against external and internal threats, including the risk inadvertently posed by employees and other network users. To safeguard its reputation for technical expertise and quality of service, Saniflo was looking for a new cyber security approach, which addresses the challenge of a constantly-evolving cyber-threat landscape.

Following a thorough review of the market, Saniflo selected Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System technology, thanks to its unique ability to ‘understand’ normal activity within its organization – without having to provide context or using prior knowledge. Powered by machine learning and probabilistic mathematics, Darktrace analyzes every user, device and network, and detects abnormal behaviors that it judges to be suspicious or malicious.

With Darktrace, Saniflo also enjoys 100% visibility of its network, through the Threat Visualizer interface, and greater confidence that it can mitigate emerging threats, before they turn into crises.

“I don’t know if you can find the same technology anywhere else,” explains Frédéric Carricaburu, Chief Inforamtion Officer at Saniflo. “Darktrace’s mathematical approach, normal/abnormal analysis and attractive management interface - which allows the user to easily use the product - makes a huge difference.”

“We are excited to be working with such an industry-renowned company in helping them detect the subtle threats inside their network,” said Emmanuel Meriot, Managing Director, France. “The Enterprise Immune System is the only technology that addresses the problem of today’s threat landscape – identifying new, evolving threats in real time, with its unique, self-learning approach.”

Saniflo joins Darktrace’s rapidly-growing customer base in France, which spans financial services, manufacturing, retail, the legal sector and healthcare.
