Everything we do is lead by consultancy.

We do not employ commissioned sales people who are inevitably pushing for big-ticket sales. You should expect your account manager to be an experienced security professional who will become familiar with your business and will be an advisor to your company for years to come. 

The solutions we devise and recommend are based on sound technical evaluation of your environment and working together to understand you, your team and the needs of your enterprise. There is no standard approach or a "cookie cutter" tick sheet. Whist we have favoured technologies, no one vendor dominates our solution design and we expect each solution to be bespoke. Our solutions are requirements based rather than vendor-lead because we will not shoe-horn inappropriate technology into your network to hit a 3rd-party metric (e.g. to support a sales campaign). 

In any of the project types below, our engagement begins with a consultation, dsicussion of the short and long term aims of the organisation and a proposal on how best to move forward. 

 

Strategy

When designing security strategy, we spend a considerable time working with the client to ensure that all areas of the business are considered. Strategy should provide a framework to support the aims of the business for at least the next 5 years, but also be flexible enough to cope with inevitable changes and additions as time goes by.

Architecture

When architecting a network environment, we evaluate business need and recommend solutions based primarily on business requirement and future growth. Solutions must support the needs of the business, enable the creative freedom to allow the enterprise to innovate, and be flexible enough to grow as the enterprise develops.

Rearchitecture

When rearchitecting an existing network, we evaluate business need and map against existing tools and investments. Where assets can be reused, reoptimised or repurposed, they will be considered before any rip and replace strategy is recommended. Often, the addition of one or two key solutions can produce excellent results without the disruption caused by a wholesale replacement strategy.

Project Work

For a specific project, consultants consider the wider network, the business environment and the operational requirement ensuring that any recommended solution will be complimentary, and will enhance the array, rather than simply co-existing with other elements.

Troubleshooting

A network evaluation is the first step of any troubleshooting engagement. Once this is complete, a root and branch inspection of all solution elements will be undertaken. This methodical approach is key to our success in finding and resolving problems that others have failed to isolate.

Optimisation

Solutions are often installed with base-level configurations, and not kept up to date. Our optimisation work helps you to use all available solution features and benefit from latest thinking to get the most from your investment.
