brands include digital department stores Very.co.uk and Littlewoods.com, as well as luxury fashion retailer VeryExclusive.co.uk.
“Every organisation at some point is subject to a breach, incident or cyber event,” said Liam Fu, head of information security at Shop Direct. “The ability to quickly and accurately detect and respond to threats is paramount, and Vectra is helping us reduce business risk.”
