Brazil's leading information security firm plans European expansion
Tempest Security Intelligence Launches UK Operations
Tempest's comprehensive security and testing services are broken down into five main categories:
- Managed Security Services delivered to robust SLAs to provide 24/7 protection for clients' business systems.
- Threat intelligence to provide continuously updated, risk-assessed information on the latest potential and actual information security threats.
- Penetration testing and application security to identify and mitigate risks arising from any gaps in an organisation's IT environment.
- Consultancy from its information security experts to support an organisation's own in-house experts in providing information security and fraud prevention solutions.
- On-site teams to provide hands-on support at clients' premises.
Berta Papp, Managing Director of Tempest UK says: "As one of the world's fastest growing economies, Brazil has widespread adoption of sophisticated technologies and advanced business systems, particularly in the field of financial services and banking. However, we have also seen a commensurate rise in the amount of potential fraudulent activity and cyber attackers looking for vulnerable but lucrative systems. As a result, Brazil is one of the toughest information security markets in the world."
She continued, "Tempest is now bringing the extensive experience it has gained in its domestic markets to Europe, with what we believe is the right combination of service offerings, market-leading expertise, reporting and operational transparency, and a commitment to customer service that organisations are looking for."
All Tempest services meet the international ISO 9001 standard for information security, and the company is recognised in Brazil for its in-depth technical expertise, the strength of its research and development, its operational maturity and its commitment to client service and delivering the services that clients need. Tempest's founders are highly regarded within the industry as thought leaders, and over the past 20 years have developed strong academic and practical credentials in the field.
The company has a team of more than 90 professionals working in Brazil and the UK. The company emphasises the value of professional training to the highest standards and invests heavily in its recruits through ongoing training and development programmes to ensure they remain ahead of new technologies.
