Why We Started

After realising that all the solutions currently available on the market are not very proactive at all, we started doing research to see if we would be able to provide proactive solutions to our clients in a way that would not cost them unnecessary money.

We specifically looked for solutions that were more proactive in hunting the malice in the environment and making sure that they are able to block and protect before the incident happens.

We took this same methodology over to our early warning technologies to ensure that it would always be proactive. We integrated many different technologies into one platform to deter and stop the vandalism before it had happened.

We found very few companies that had this kind of strategy. For us, there was no point in having security that would react and investigate after the incident had already taken place instead of immediately stopping it before it had happened. Using that module, we were able to save money for our clients.
