Contract wins for listed cyber security company

Cyber security services provider, ECSC, has won two significant contracts in its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) division for one of the UK’s major charities and a national leisure group.

The Bradford-based company will provide cyber security monitoring, detection and response support from its Security Operations Centres located in the UK and Australia, employing its proprietary Kepler Artificial Intelligence technology.

The contracts, both of which are for an initial period of three years, have a combined revenue value in excess of £550,000.

In addition, during January 2021, ECSC says it gained 11 new clients within its Assurance Division for a wide range of consultancy engagements across a number of diverse industries.

ECSC’s Assurance Division helps organisations test their cyber security, prevent breaches and achieve industry certifications.

Ian Mann, chief executive officer of the business, said: “We are delighted to announce two further significant contract wins for our MDR division across two diverse sectors. 

“The first client is a service extension, originating from our established Partner Programme, and the second is a new client win.

“These new contracts demonstrate the continued resilience of the long-established MDR service that grew strongly throughout 2020 and has continued to grow in 2021.

“ECSC’s MDR services allow clients to receive immediate alerts to potential incidents, and combine expert advice, incident response and containment.

“Speed of response on a 24/7 basis helps clients prevent breaches escalating into damaging ransomware or loss of personal data, which can potentially lead to large fines under UK GDPR legislation.

“In terms of the continued expansion of the Assurance Division, we are pleased that four of the new clients gained in January 2021 were from our expanding Partner Programme.”
