In addition to a new name, new HQ, and a new Managing Director, leading cyber security company, Reliance Cyber, is strengthening its position as the go-to security partner for the mid-market. The company’s current CEO Martin Sutherland will remain on the Board, moving across to a more consultative role as a Non-Executive Director, whilst Mark Gascoigne -previously Reliance Cyber’s COO- will step up to the position of MD.
Reliance Cyber MD, Mark Gascoigne commented “I am delighted to kick off spring 2023 with a number of exciting announcements, including a company re-brand, my recent appointment as MD and a new company headquarters. Since the Reliance acquisition of ACSN six years ago we have watched the business grow year on year. During 2022 we welcomed a further expansion and evolution of our services portfolio, along with an increased headcount to meet ever-growing demand. As we continue to see a rise in the uptake of our offerings such as Extended Detection and Response (XDR), Managed Security Services and Consultancy Services, we recognise more than ever the mid-market’s appetite and need for dedicated expertly delivered security solutions that add real value.”
Gascoigne went on to explain “Our decision to move to Reliance Cyber comes at the perfect time. With the cyber security landscape becoming ever more complex and often confusing for consumers, we wanted to cut through the noise and make it very clear what we do, deliver best-in-class cyber security services tailored to our customers’ needs. Providing clarity and strength of brand will be key to our continued growth, something that will allow us to remain competitive and continue to offer more capability and quality of service to the mid-market than other providers.”
The re-brand marks another key milestone in Reliance Cyber’s journey, having recently undertaken a significant technical transformation, with the addition of industry-leading automation and AI capabilities across its managed services, as well as threat intelligence feeds – which significantly reduce customer risk, as well as a completely reworked customer ticketing and communications platform to streamline and simplify incident management. The company also boasts a new HQ, purpose-designed from the ground up to meet customer and staff needs even more efficiently and effectively.
“Moving into the position of MD at this pivotal moment in Reliance Cyber’s journey is a huge opportunity. We as a business have a clear vision for the future. I look forward to continuing to work with the team at Reliance Cyber to create an environment where we empower our customers, enabling them to achieve their cyber security and ultimately their strategic goals.” Gascoigne concluded.
Mark Gascoigne brings with him a strong track record of success within the cyber security industry, with 20 years of experience across a range of sectors including defence, security and aviation. Before joining Reliance Cyber as COO, Mark previously worked as Operations Director for the global cyber security business at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence. Mark has held a number of leadership and management roles in other companies including UK Services Director at Digital Barriers, Global Sales Operations Director at De La Rue and most recently as European Managing Director for Gama Aviation Plc.
