Darktrace, the leader in Enterprise Immune System technology, today announced that Giunti Editore, a major Italian publishing house, has deployed Darktrace to protect its critical data and intellectual property.

Headquartered in Florence, Italy, Giunti Editore selected Darktrace following a thorough review of the cyber security marketplace, due to its unique, self-learning technology, which learns ‘normal’ behaviors on the network, and can identify emerging cyber-threats. The benefits include real-time visibility of the entire infrastructure, more accurate detection of potential security events – including insider threats – and faster response time.

Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System technology is powered by advanced mathematics and unsupervised machine learning, developed by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge. By establishing a ‘pattern of life’ for every user, device and the network as a whole, the self-learning defense technology is uniquely capable of detecting threats that go unseen by traditional security tools, wherever they manifest themselves on the network.

“Our cyber defense strategy has been transformed by Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System. The machine learning technology detects behaviors that are abnormal and responds to them,” said Raffaello Ghilardi, CIO, Giunti. “Darktrace’s ability to inform us about unusual activity as soon as it occurs is unique and has given us much more confidence in our ability to stop cyber-attacks, before any damage is done.”

“We are very pleased that Giunti has chosen to deploy the Enterprise Immune System to protect its network and data assets,” said Corrado Broli, Managing Director, Italy. “Darktrace grows with your organization, so it can adapt with new data, users and technologies on Giunti’s environment, as well as adapting to new threats. It is quickly becoming the leading cyber defense solution in Italy.”

Giunti Editore joins a growing customer base in Italy, spanning legal, financial services, healthcare, automotive, and food and drink industries.
