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.
