Posted on: 3/12/20

ALBANY, NY (March 9, 2020) — Marvin and Company, P.C., an award-winning Capital Region accounting, auditing, taxation and management consulting firm, is pleased to announce it is one of the first Upstate New York Accounting Firms to deploy Darktrace’s artificial intelligence to protect confidential client data and stop cyber-attacks.
“Cyber threats continue to increase at an extremely fast pace with no signs of slowing down,” said John J. Unser, CISO and Vulnerability Assessor at Marvin and Company, P.C. “In recent years cybercriminals have moved from using traditional cyber-attack tactics to AI-based attacks.  We felt the only way for the firm to stay ahead of the cybercriminals was to implement AI-based cyber security. Darktrace, the world’s leading cyber AI company, is the only technology with the capability to detect and respond in real time, learning on the job to protect a company’s entire digital estate. Cyber AI can then take precise action to contain a threat in seconds – a unique Autonomous Response capability.”
Marvin and Company, P.C. recognizes that the status quo of cyber defense is no longer sufficient, leading the firm to be proactive with its security strategy. The firm wanted a technology capable of defending against tomorrow’s unpredictable threats, whether it be machine-speed ransomware or slow and stealthy threats. Marvin and Company, P.C. has turned to Darktrace for the answer, trusting in its cyber AI to identify and autonomously respond to attacks within seconds.
Darktrace’s proven ability to detect and stop sophisticated attacks within seconds will revolutionize security and significantly enhance risk mitigation for our clients. 
“Darktrace’s Autonomous Response is the crucial difference between an emerging threat and a crisis. Using AI to autonomously block attacks within seconds, we can feel confident that our client data is protected from cyber-criminals – despite our industry becoming more vulnerable by the day,” said Kevin P. O’Leary, CPA, Managing Director of Marvin and Company, P.C.
