DARKTRACE BOSS COMES OUT FIGHTING
DARKTRACE boss Poppy Gustafsson has come out fighting after an attack on the cyber firm by an investor and a subsequent financial probe.
The chief executive ( pictured) dismissed ‘recent distractions’, saying Darktrace has the ‘greatest integrity’.
It came after New York hedge fund Quintessential Capital Management in January said it was ‘deeply sceptical’ about its finances and accused it of ‘overstated’ sales figures. Darktrace has since commissioned auditor EY to independently review its financial processes.
Darktrace said revenue for the six months to the end of December was up 36pc yearon-year to £219.2m. Profit climbed 33pc to £50.5m, smashing analyst forecasts.
It uses artificial intelligence to help firms detect cyber attacks and vulnerabilities.
