Why Roke Security?

UK businesses continue to grasp the opportunities provided by new technology. The broadband revolution has allowed companies to increasingly use the Internet to reach their customers and enable their staff to be more mobile. Their IT activities now extend beyond traditional physical network boundaries.

As a result, IT systems and information security are more important to UK companies than ever before. Companies increasingly realize that their people, while their greatest asset, can be their greatest vulnerability and risk, and so need to be educated on security risks. As an example, companies that carry out risk assessment now are four times as likely to detect identitiy theft as those that do not and the average seriousness of incidents has increased.

Confidential information is increasingly at risk, with businesses noting a significant rise in data leakage, unauthorized access to company networks, phishing emails asking their customers for data, identity theft and confidentiality breaches.

Many companies aren't doing enough to protect themselves and, more importantly, their customers' information. Major areas for concern are:

  • Data leaks
  • Client Side Attacks
  • Patching
  • Targeted Phishing attacks
  • Evolution of Spam
  • Web Application vulnerabilities
  • Social networking as an information source
  • The rise of professional malware engineering
  • Lack of encryption of payment details by transactional websites

Roke Security is uniquely positioned to assist companies, be they small, medium or large by engaging its teams of seasoned security consultants and experts and deploying well architected and robust solutions.
