- Falanx Group has won a new two year contract to provide managed cyber defence services to CERT-UK, the UK's Computer Emergency Response Team.

CERT-UK is the UK Government's lead for advising industry and public organisations on cyber threats and how to implement best practice to mitigate risks and vulnerabilities.

Working in partnership with CERT-UK, Falanx Cyber will deploy its advanced Protective Monitoring capability to protect all of CERT-UK's data and information systems. This will detect and interdict cyber threats and enable CERT-UK to fulfill its mission securely.

Falanx says: "In providing this service Falanx will have unique access to knowledge and information about current Cyber threats to the UK, which will in turn assist us in the continued development of our world-leading service for our customers."

Chief executive John Blamire comments: "We are extremely proud to have beaten stiff competition against major cyber security providers to win this highly prestigious contract. CERT-UK's selection of our service is further validation of our technology and a credit to our highly talented team. We now look forward to working in close partnership with CERT-UK to help protect the UK from the growing Cyber threat."
