Most Outstanding IT Security Solutions Provider

At the ceremony, we were awarded the ‘Most Outstanding IT Security Solutions Provider’ in Birmingham, recognising the work we’ve done to help our clients increase their security posture using the latest firewall, information rights management, identity access and anti-virus technologies, in addition to helping lots of businesses become Cyber Essentials certified and achieve other recognised security certifications.

Andrew Penlington said: “We’re flattered to be recognised for our prioritising of security and our ability to keep our clients safe. Currently, cybersecurity is the single most important issue for the IT industry. We can’t realistically see a time when that will change.”

Air IT offers a managed IT service that makes its clients less vulnerable to cyberattack and helps them to prevent catastrophic loss of data or systems. We can also help victims of cybercrime to move forward quickly after an attack, minimising damage to operations.

Andrew continued: “We continually invest time and money in maintaining our ability to prevent our clients falling victim to acts of cybercrime. It’s crucial that we do this, because the moment we stop is the moment we cease to provide the service our clients need and deserve.

“Going forward, we will keep a fixed eye on protecting our clients from zero-day attacks and helping to educate their staff on the very real and unprecedented threat from cybercrime. Cybercriminals are always looking for new ways in which to take advantage of businesses, particularly those with smaller IT security budgets because they are seen as easy targets.”
