ECSC, the AIM listed Bradford-based provider of cyber security services, has secured five major contracts totalling more than £750,000.

The largest contract is to provide 24/7/365 cyber security monitoring and breach detection, following ECSC’s response to a major security incident within a chemical company.

The managed solution utilises ECSC’s proprietary Kepler Artificial Intelligence, managed from the Group Security Operations Centres in the UK and Australia.

Also using the same Kepler Artificial Intelligence technology, the next three contracts represent a two-year renewal from a household name in the retail sector, a new three-year contract with an IT services company, and a one-year contract extension with a financial services organisation.

The final contract is a cyber security testing programme for a new client providing mobile payment solutions.

“Following the new 2019 GDPR fines, clients are increasingly recognising the need for cyber security services,” said Ian Mann, CEO of ECSC.

“Our strategy of winning consultancy clients and developing them into long-term recurring managed services clients continues to be effective.”
