Global intelligence and cyber defence provider Falanx has secured a £250,000 three-year contract with an unnamed UK Health Sector provider.
The contract will see Falanx provide 24/7 cyber ‘Incident Response’ coverage to protect and contain infrastructure in the event of a cyber attack.
The company explained: “This new contract provides an expansion of our Protective Monitoring service to provide more comprehensive coverage of the IT estate.”
The cover will allow the team at Falanx to immediately isolate any compromised parts of the network as cyber sabotage is detected from within the Falanx Security Operations Centre while action takes place.
Discussing the contract, Mike Read, Chairman and CEO said: “I am delighted to report the extension and increase of services to one of our most valued clients in the Health Sector.
“This further demonstrates our ability to successfully migrate clients consuming traditional cyber test and consultancy services into managed monitoring of their network with our proprietary platform and on-call response.
The company has also announced a new CFO, Ian Selby.
Read added: “I am also very pleased to welcome Ian Selby to our team. Ian comes with an extremely strong background in assisting the development of successful businesses and knowledge of AIM.
“I am sure he will be an extremely valued and influential member of our team as we continue to grow.”
