Red Helix is a market leader in network performance and cyber security

Previously known as Phoenix Datacom, we evolved into Red Helix, developing our brand to match what we offer – a strong, stable, and resilient source of protection and optimisation for organisations across the UK.

Drawing on 40 years of technical competence and heritage, we provide industry specific managed services and solutions to help our clients succeed and grow, regardless of their size – from mid-market organisations to some of the biggest blue-chip brands in the country.

We offer more than just cyber security and network optimisation. We care about our clients. As a vendor agnostic and independent business, we recommend what is right, not just what we have.
