Why Us

Cybersecurity is now a boardroom issue, endangering both revenues and reputations. SecureData’s complete, proactive strategy and custom-built capabilities were designed from the ground up to reduce cyber risk, protect customers effectively and limit the damage when breaches happen.

Why Us

The traditional approach to cybersecurity is broken. Spending has increased, but so have the number of breaches. Meanwhile most compromises aren’t due to sophisticated new threats, but ones we already know about. Technology alone cannot match the scale and breadth of today’s attack landscape to solve this problem; in fact, most organisations aren’t effectively using the systems they have.

To meet today’s security challenge, we have combined the best technologies with robust processes and expert people who understand the dark side of the cyber world – building cohesive, end-to-end capabilities that control cyber risk and drive more value from security spending.

A piecemeal approach to IT security inevitably leaves organisations exposed to greater risk. Our strategy addresses the entire attack continuum, with bespoke capabilities that enable organisations to assess risks, detect threats, protect assets and respond to breaches quickly and effectively.

We combine a total understanding of customer environments with visibility into the surrounding threat landscape, enabling us to tailor efficient security strategies that match cyber risk to a customer’s business posture appropriately. This approach dramatically reduces risk across the entire attack continuum, helping customers maintain the outstanding availability, confidentiality and integrity every business craves.

Why SecureData?

  • Reduce the cost and business impact of security breaches.
  • Reduce TCO and resource demands from IT security.
  • Drive greater value from focussed security spending.
  • Tailor IT security to mitigate business risk appropriately.
  • Manage cyber risk to lower insurance premiums and ensure adequate cover.
