Platinum Sponsors

We are IT Security Experts, plain and simple. We have earned this status though diligent attention to detail, and a professional curiosity that has taken us to explore all areas within the field.

Over the years ITSE have been involved in developing security systems for business tools recognised worldwide, bringing the latest technologies to the UK market and deploying best-of-breed solutions for organisations that are so sensitive, our sales team don’t even know about them!

So what do we do in the meantime? We don’t believe in outsourcing security, so we work to support your in-house security professionals with the best tools for the job, advice when they feel a little out of their depth and do the leg work where necessary to ensure that they are given the best fighting chance to secure every aspect of your business technologies.
