arktrace , a global leader in cybersecurity Artificial
Intelligence , has announced that RioCan , one of
Canada ’ s largest real estate investment trusts , has selected Darktrace to defend ‘ The Well ’, Canada ’ s most ambitious multi-use real estate project .
Set to open in 2023 , The Well will host approximately 11,000 people daily . Located in downtown Toronto , this expansive development will comprise more than 200 retail , commercial and residential spaces across 7.7 acres of land .
RioCan selected Darktrace ’ s DETECT and RESPOND technologies in 2021 to defend network and cloud infrastructure across its commercial office spaces and retail property investments . The property investor is now deploying Darktrace ’ s AI to defend this 3 million square foot project in Toronto from sophisticated and disruptive cyberthreats .
As cybercrime proliferates , attackers continue to target real estate organisations both to exfiltrate confidential data , including the financial information of property buyers and sellers and to disrupt operations and demand hefty ransoms from investors and agents . With AI-powered defences , RioCan is able to protect its IT estate as well as its operational technology , including elevators , thermostats and appliances .
“ Central to the success of The Well is a world-class tenant experience ,” said George Ho , Vice President of Informational Technology at RioCan . “ The best thing about Darktrace ’ s AI is that it learns every detail of both our information and Operational Technology so that we can minimise any disruptions to our normal business operations in the event of a cybersecurity incident . That is the future of security .”
