KTR Systems, a global company with over 1,200 employees and 24 subsidiaries, was facing a significant challenge in protecting its diverse and complex digital infrastructure from increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks. The company's traditional security tools, which relied on historical data to detect threats, were proving ineffective against novel attacks. In 2019, KTR Systems fell victim to two instances of CEO fraud, confirming that their security measures were inadequate. The company's IT team was also limited in its ability to monitor global workforce activity around the clock. Furthermore, the company suffered an attempted ransomware attack, which, although thwarted before causing damage, highlighted the need for a more robust security solution.
About The Customer
KTR Systems is a global company with a diverse and complex digital infrastructure. With over 1,200 employees and 24 subsidiaries, the company has a vast digital ecosystem that requires robust protection from cyber threats. The company's IT team was previously reliant on traditional security tools that used historical data to detect threats. However, these tools proved ineffective against novel and sophisticated attacks, leading to instances of CEO fraud and an attempted ransomware attack. Recognizing the need for a more advanced security solution, KTR Systems turned to Darktrace's Immune System and Antigena Email.
To address these challenges, KTR Systems turned to Darktrace's Immune System, a cybersecurity solution that uses Self-Learning AI to detect and respond to threats. The AI system learns the normal 'patterns of life' for every user and device in the organization, continuously revising its understanding based on changing behavior. This enables it to detect anomalous activity indicative of threats, including novel strains of malware and subtle insider threats that static rules and signature-based tools cannot detect. The company also implemented Darktrace's Antigena Email, which extends the Self-Learning AI protection to the email realm. This tool understands the human behind the keyboard, analyzing emails in context to form a nuanced and continually evolving understanding of communication across the business. It detects subtle deviations indicative of a cyber-threat and autonomously reacts in real time.

Predictive Maintenance for Industrial Chillers
For global leaders in the industrial chiller manufacturing, reliability of the entire production process is of the utmost importance. Chillers are refrigeration systems that produce ice water to provide cooling for a process or industrial application. One of those leaders sought a way to respond to asset performance issues, even before they occur. The intelligence to guarantee maximum reliability of cooling devices is embedded (pre-alarming). A pre-alarming phase means that the cooling device still works, but symptoms may appear, telling manufacturers that a failure is likely to occur in the near future. Chillers who are not internet connected at that moment, provide little insight in this pre-alarming phase.
