Cyber security ecosystem

For every information security need in this ecosystem,

there’s an Ascentor engagement that has delivered.

Working with Ascentor gives you real-world benefits,

for example:

 One prime supplier saw 15% cost reduction and 10% efficiency uplift as a result of Ascentor’s inclusion in their project.

 A co-developed outcome-based delivery model reduced IA services cost for our government client by £3m

 We defined and implemented OS & application security hardening for a UOR project.

Without Ascentor, our IRM project would have been delayed, exposing the business to unnecessary risks.”
