A growing market for cyber security solutions
Over four in ten UK businesses was hit by a cyber attack in 2017, according to the annual report of the National Cyber Security Centre, and earlier this year, the head of the centre, Ciaran Martin, raised the prospect of cyber attacks on Britains critical infrastructure and underlined the country’s need for advanced cybersecurity solutions.

“We have of course noticed the situation in the UK in regard to cybersecurity, and we believe our solutions and services fit well with the market’s demand for secure test tools that also keep costs at a low,” said Thomas S. Jensen from GateHouse Telecom.

The UK businesses have already increased their spending on cybersecurity measures in 2017, according to a survey by TurnerLittle. The British government is also taking substantial steps to bolster the country’s defense against cyber threats, for instance was a new legislation to protect the country’s critical infrastructure and digital services introduced in April this year.
