London, England, 25 January 2018 – Sequrest (www.sequrest.com), the cyber security specialist has announced that it has achieved strong growth in its first year of trading having signed up 400+ financial services, commercial and government organisations as customers. These institutions benefit from robust cyber security solutions, proactive cyber defence strategies and access to recognised cyber and digital security experts with a wealth of industry experience.
Industry research shows that 99% of computers are vulnerable to exploit kits and 72% of businesses have been affected by fraudulent emails. These are just two reasons why it is critically important for organisations to ensure that they are fully protected from current and emerging cyber risks. Investing in cyber security is not just for large organisations, and the Sequrest end to end cyber security platform offers all companies the ability to tap into robust and cost effective cyber security protection. This is particularly relevant to smaller companies that often do not invest sufficiently in either cyber security defences or staff training and awareness.
Robert McClure, Managing Director at Sequrest comments, “I am delighted that Sequrest has achieved such a strong first year in business. The rate of our expansion shows no sign of slowing as an increasing number of companies appreciate the benefits of a complete cyber defence solution, from a single expert supplier. Our vision is to build a world class cyber security company that operates globally. We have made enormous progress in a short space of time and we will continue to evolve our offering to enable customers to stay protected against the dynamic threat landscape. To help achieve this, we are building a Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS) platform which will be launched later this year.”
Sequrest was formed by cyber security experts with decades of experience in all aspects of cyber security and defence. The team has expanded rapidly with 60+ cyber specialists servicing customers in 20 countries across three continents from a London HQ and offices in Europe and the Middle East.
McClure added, “A significant part of our success is due to an effective channel strategy and I would like to thank our partners who helped to make the last 12 months so successful. Working with existing vendors of banking solutions, we have been able to add value to their customers with relatively little effort required from the partner. We plan to make more partner announcements in the coming weeks as our channel expands.”
Bruce Raine, CEO and Founder of IPBS, the most recent partner to sign up with Sequrest added, “Countering cyber risks is a key challenge for many of our customers. By partnering with Sequrest, we can help these institutions to improve and fortify their cyber defences without the overheads traditionally associated with recruiting and retaining specialist staff or investing in individual solutions, meaning they can focus time and resources on running their core business.”
