We currently provide managed IT services to numerous clients in Ireland and the United States. Our focus is on the market in United States, London and we are hoping to open an office in Dubai during 2014.

Cyber risks are faced not just by e-commerce companies and those undertaking transactions over the internet, but also by companies that store personal data, are reliant on computer or telephone networks, holds digital information or uses the internet can face these exposures.

From our point of view, it has been a great time to start our business.  We are a young, enthusiastic and agile company and found that working hard for our clients has allowed us to set up and thrive in 2013.  The support and help we received from some of our advisors particular our business partners based in New York has been pivotal in our development and direction for the future.  We believe that the entrepreneurial journey will always have challenges regardless of the financial climate however we meet each challenge head on and determined to succeed.
