Cyber Defense

Uses knowledge of practical network attack tools and techniques to deliver an effective and sustainable defensive posture

Regain control of your network

Organizations constantly strive to prevent incidents occurring but should assume that eventual breach is inevitable. No large organization can implement 100 per cent security across the entire information systems estate. Cyber defense managers face a choice; spread protection thinly and ineffectively or focus on protecting the core assets.

Our Cyber Defense consultants have amassed expertise from a range of backgrounds that allow us to implement effective security within any organization. They leverage from MWR’s leading-edge research to shape an effective security posture at organizational level, developing solutions such as monitoring, attack detection and shaping overall security strategy. 

“We combine strategic thinking and technology expertise to deliver enhanced protection against all modern threats. Helping clients separate effective defensive measures from technology hype, we build a business case that proves the need to enhance defences.

Cyber Defense orchestrates delivery, ensuring that security investment translates into positive business outcomes right across your organisation.”

Andy Waugh, Cyber Defense Security Consultant, MWR
