Darktrace, the world’s leading AI company for cyber defence, has today announced that Waverton, a leading investment management house, has deployed its autonomous response technology, Darktrace Antigena, to defend sensitive customer data from unpredictable cyber-threats.

Waverton joins a growing number of leading financial organisations that are powering their cyber security with Darktrace’s AI, including three of the top five European banks, and the UK’s top financial institution.

Adnan Uz-Zaman, Network and Infrastructure Lead, Waverton, commented: “As an investment management firm, upholding the trust of our customers and portfolio companies is the bedrock of our business. Cyber risk is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses today and Darktrace gives us an edge against fast-moving attackers and malicious or accidental insider threat. The Enterprise Immune System not only detects emerging cyber-threats anywhere in our network, but autonomously fights back against them in real time. With the AI at work, our security team can prioritize strategic risks, instead of getting lost in the weeds.”
