ED&F Man Holdings, a commodities trader with a global presence, faced the increasing success of cyberattacks and the need to significantly enhance its cybersecurity processes, tools, and personnel. The company needed to detect and stop attacks faster while managing the risks associated with its extensive global operations, involving trading agricultural products in 60 countries.
ED&F undertook a complete security transformation, with a focus on next-generation security technology, integration, and automation. Cognito, the AI-driven threat detection and response platform from Vectra, played a crucial role in this transformation. Cognito provided immediate visibility into attacker behaviors in network traffic, allowing the security team to rapidly detect and prioritize attacks in real time.
Leveraging Vectra AI, ED&F significantly enhanced its cybersecurity posture, reducing high-priority incidents from 200 alerts a week to just a few per month. Integration with advanced security tools and seamless automation not only improved operational efficiency but also transformed the perception of IT security, earning the trust of business units.
"We used to get 200 alerts a week. Now with Cognito, we have four or five a month.”
