When a network critical to bus and train services in the United Kingdom began to slow down, the IT team at The Go-Ahead Group plc. suspected a cyber attack, and turned to Symantec and Symantec Platinum Partner Threatscape.
- Operates eight bus and three train companies throughout the central and southern United Kingdom
