DigitalXRAID announces 400% year-on-year growth in SOC as organisations seek 24/7/365 threat protection DigitalXRAID, an award-winning managed security services provider, today announced its continued momentum with a 400% year-on-year (YoY) growth in its Security Operations Centre (SOC) business as customers recognise the value in holistic cybersecurity protection. The organisation’s growth extends across the business, which has grown by 70% YoY, and includes workforce expansion as leadership pushes forward with a dedicated recruitment drive across Security Operations and Security Testing. News of DigitalXRAID’s ongoing momentum follows its recognition as one of only ten companies globally to be awarded the CREST OVS Accreditation, meeting the CREST internationally recognised gold standard in app penetration testing. The company has also celebrated the appointment of Alan Freeland, Lead Security Analyst and SOC Manager, to the CREST International Council and the success of Kerry Jones, Head of Compliance and Information Security, winning Security Woman of the Year in the Security Excellence Awards. Supported by its industry-leading team of security professionals, the organisation has welcomed a number of new customers across industries. This The award-winning MSSP continues impressive momentum, growing its business by 70% and becoming recognised by CREST as one of only ten companies globally with a gold standard in app penetration testing includes particular growth in the public sector, working with central government organisations and local government organisations such as Wiltshire Council. “With the UK reported to have suffered the most cyberattacks of any European country in 2022, holistic cybersecurity services have never been more important – and it’s clear every sector from public to private is recognising the value of good cyber hygiene and 24/7/365 protection,” said Rick Jones, CEO and Co-Founder of DigitalXRAID. “The significant year-on-year growth we’ve achieved at DigitalXRAID is a reflection of the world-class managed security services we deliver. We are dedicated to providing leading cybersecurity strategies that enhance security posture and reduce risk. We are therefore extremely proud to be awarded the CREST OVS Accreditation and to sit in the global top 1% for accreditations.” New customer wins and proven results The business growth DigitalXRAID has seen over the last year is testament to the strength of its customer relationships. The organisation has celebrated new customer wins in the last 12 months with organisations including Bark and Thrive Homes. Bark is the UK’s largest and fastest growing online marketplace for professional services. Bark engaged DigitalXRAID to conduct a NIST cybersecurity maturity assessment to evaluate operational resilience and existing cybersecurity procedures. As a result, Bark was provided with a clear outline of what security measures were in place for its cyber insurance provider to assess against, helping to reduce premiums. Thrive Homes, a professional landlord managing over 5,000 homes across England, also commissioned DigitalXRAID to conduct a cybersecurity maturity assessment. John Stenton, Head of Information Technology at Thrive Homes, said, “The DigitalXRAID team were fantastic throughout the project and very process driven. They really probed into all areas of our technology, risk and controls, which is exactly what we needed. The whole experience was very enjoyable because the approach from DigitalXRAID was so open and honest but also well integrated with the entire business.” Wiltshire Council, which delivers more than 350 services to the county, engaged DigitalXRAID for an IT Health Check. Jenny Hearn, Security Manager at Wiltshire Council, said, “The whole team were very friendly and responsive throughout the whole process, offering expert advice around scoping and taking time to understand our requirements, rather than trying to sell to us. We were kept up to date on the testing stages with daily updates. The final report was well formatted and easy to understand with more detail included. We’ve definitely seen an improvement on previous years.” Jan22194
