San Francisco
Monday November 5, 2018

Darktrace, the world’s leading AI company for cyber defense, has today announced that University Federal Credit Union (UFCU) has deployed the Enterprise Immune System to defend its business from advanced cyber-attacks, including both low-and-slow and machine-speed threats.

With 16 local branches, University Federal Credit Union is one of the leading credit unions in the state of Utah. UFCU deployed Darktrace to detect emerging threats across its entire digital infrastructure and autonomously respond to stop or slow threats, preventing them from escalating into a crisis. It joins the rapidly growing list of financial organizations deploying Darktrace’s world-leading cyber AI, including Billtrust, Blackhawk Networks, and Jackson National Life Insurance Company.

Josh Marshall, Information Systems Manager at UFCU, commented: “High-profile data breaches are leading to reputational consequences and declines in consumer confidence. UFCU customers need to be able to trust that their data is secure and, understanding the risks posed by cyber-criminals and insiders alike, we knew we needed to take a proactive and innovative approach to our cyber defense. Today, Darktrace’s AI-powered autonomous response is securing the account details and social security numbers of over 100,000 members and enabling us to stay one step ahead of cyber-criminals.”
