Cyber firms move boosts security

Cyber security specialist Ruptura InfoSecurity has moved its server and switch equipment to the colocation data services centre operated by Host-lt in Milton Keynes.

The move by the Milton Keynes company follows a review of its immediate and future IT requirements.

Ruptura InfoSecurity's remote-based team of highly accredited penetration testing specialists provides cyber security services to more than 150 clients Including major financial institutions, fintechs, crypto exchanges and those in the HR, legal and insurance sectors.

Founder and managing director Tom Heenan said: "Host-IT's conveniently sited and highly certified colocation solution meets our requirement for security and compliance. This is especially important for our financial and professional services clients due to it being a fully UK-based and secure data centre location."

The company requires colocation rather than cloud-based hosting because of its highly specialised and sensitive IT operations. "We can spin-up new penetration testing services and tools very quickly while knowing Host-IT's excellent tech support is always on hand should we need it," said Tom.

Host-It managing director Andrew Willis said: "We are pleased they have been impressed by not only its high quality but also the calibre of Host-IT's responsive technical support capabilities. We look forward to supporting their requirements in the years to come."
