Security protection for ever more complex challenges
Security to match your expectations and needs
No two customers are the same, so we take a holistic approach to protect everything that’s important to you – whilst ensuring security compliance and staff productivity.
Whether you need a solution to meet a specific threat vector or are looking for a strategic partner to help you prioritise and address your security concerns, we can help.
Supplying, integrating, and managing industry-leading solutions
At times we find addressing one problem can lead to unforeseen focus being required elsewhere. On other occasions new investments can be averted with simple configuration changes or by addressing something else that may not seem so obvious.
If you have a network security challenge, discuss it with us first, then we can take a holistic approach and address the problem in the most efficient way.
Typical case points include:
- Delaying the need to buy new Firewalls and Intrusion Prevention Systems
- Reducing log ingestion charges for Security Information Event Management (SIEM) tools
- Ensuring your network security tools can block new threats as they emerge
Tell us what you need, and we’ll do the rest. If it turns out you need a network security upgrade, we can design and manage your solution – without impacting anything else.

Zero Trust Security
Managed Zero Trust Network Access
Replacing implicit trust with policy-based access controls
VPN technology hasn’t changed much over the past 20 years, so it’s easy to see why secure access to networks and asset visibility can be a struggle in this digital era.
And when you consider the added threat vector of your supply chain, connecting with devices whose potential state of compromise you can’t see, it’s easy to understand why Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) – which replaces implicit trust with policy-based access controls – is widely accepted as the obvious choice for contemporary secure access strategies.
Our ZTNA service applies an architectural approach where inherent trust in the network is removed, the network is assumed hostile, and each request is verified based on a pre-defined access policy.This reduces your threat surface and improves security across the supply chain by creating a discrete, encrypted network segment of one – rendering everything else invisible and inaccessible.

Managing your firewall and ensuring it is blocking all bad IP addresses or geographies can be time consuming and costly.
Further down the security chain, sophisticated tools like malware sandboxes and intrusion prevention systems are meant to stop advanced and targeted threats, so burdening them to filter traffic you already know to be bad can increase the chances of a harmful threat getting through.
And towards the end of the chain, you may have a Security Incident Event Management (SIEM) tool taking in logs and duplicate alerts from multiple security tools.
All these factors combined result in rising costs and too much manual work.
Automatic IP blocking alleviates these issues.
Updated with new threat intel every 5 minutes, our IP blocking solution sits pre-firewall and automatically stops connections to and from IP addresses already known to be bad, hijacked, or unregistered.
This not only removes the need for manual firewall changes – it prevents sophisticated security layers from filtering traffic you already know to be bad or irrelevant, reducing the workload.
Our platform can also reduce the log ingestion charges from your SIEM tool, by reducing traffic volumes (sometimes by up to half) and causing fewer instances of multiple security tools feeding duplicate alerts for the SIEM to process.
A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack occurs when an attacker uses multiple systems to flood the bandwidth and resources of a targeted system – usually a server hosting a website or application – launched by criminals or competitors’ looking to take a service down.
With visibility into one-third of the world’s internet traffic, our DDoS Mitigation platform provides early warnings and blocking of DDoS attacks before they can take down servers, along with the applications and websites they host.
If your website or applications are critical to your business, and downtime would cost money or reputational damage, contact us today to find out how we can protect you against targeted DDoS attacks.
Different mail security tools look similar, leading some companies to tick a convenient email security box in Google Mail or Microsoft 365.
But there can be a huge capability gap between tick box tools and a platform like ours – which goes beyond known signatures and blacklisted URLs to spot spear-phishing, evaluate links, and safely detonate suspicious attachments within a virtual environment.
Our solution enables you to:
- Block spear-phishing, sender impersonation and credential-harvesting exploits in real-time
- Be prepared for the latest malware and attack techniques – with intel updates every 60 minutes
- Simplify setup and management – no hardware/software to install, patch or upgrade
Our platform easily integrates with Office 365 Exchange Online and other cloud, and on-prem email services.

Your employees need to access the internet, yet despite decades of investment in web security, web access continues to present one of the most significant cybersecurity risks.
Our secure web browsing platform provides the security to click any link and visit websites that contain malware, without the malware being able to reach the network or endpoint.
This is not the same approach as VDI-based solutions that lack scalability and have their own security vulnerabilities. We like to think of it as being similar to an airgap network, but without any drawbacks in Quality of Experience or user-acceptance.
Our platform allows you to empower your workforce to use the internet without fear of malware infection and even safely conduct investigations into the dark web.

Desktops, laptops, mobile devices and servers are all target points for criminal entry.
To make sure these endpoints remain secure, our platform goes beyond the blocking of common malware to provide:
- Detection of threat activity with real-time indicators of compromise
- Prevention of advanced threats and blocking of application exploits
- Forensic information to investigate the root cause of an issue
And if you are looking to save time and money, we can take care of all your perimeter security needs with one, predictable monthly subscription.

Using unsanctioned cloud storage for company files can make it easier to get the job done, proving a tempting prospect for employees and supply chains – but it can also lead to a whole host of damaging data and compliance breaches.
Our Data Loss Prevention (DLP) detects and blocks data usage both at rest (when stored on digital platforms) and in motion (when travelling between platforms and devices). This effectively renders files useless when unsanctioned access is attempted.
Our Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) is a web-based portal that your staff can use for safely accessing your company applications. This lets you protect sensitive information and adhere to security policies whilst reaping the rewards of cloud migration and digital transformation.
The platform combines DLP and CASB to provide a simple and cost-effective solution across any cloud platform.

Remove the risk of security failure
Regardless of whether you need to upgrade your security protection measures, you still need to make sure they do not fail and that any essential updates can take place without affecting uptime.
We can take away the risk of security failure by safely routing your traffic to other security layers for filtering before it reaches your live network.
We can also monitor security tool health and take appropriate action when needed. This means unforeseen security failures and essential maintenance won’t ever affect your security or network uptime.
- 24/7/365 security uptime
- Upgrades made without disruption
- Increased security tool lifespan
