4ARMED is a privately held UK Limited company that began trading in 2013 with a simple mission:
To be our clients' information security go-to
Not sure what a go-to is? Dictionary.com sums it up pretty well:
1. being a person who can be turned to for expert knowledge, advice, or reliable performance, especially in a crucial situation 2. noting something that can always be relied on to bring satisfaction, success, or good results
We achieve this through consistently providing meaningful, effective advice, high quality engagements, listening and adapting to our clients needs and feeding all of this back through our quality management processes to make sure we are continually improving.
Who better to help you improve your IT security? We're the good guys but we've got the same tricks up our sleeves as the bad guys.
All our consultants have been hacking for so long they don't remember a time when they didn't but, crucially, they are all great communicators. If you want the classic IT geek in the corner who doesn't speak to anyone, we're not the company for you. If you want a team of consultants who know how to engage senior management, who've worked in the wider IT industry and had to worry about defending networks, software development priorities, compliance requirements, user needs and all the other great day-to-day challenges security teams face and who have the technical skills to assess, advise, educate and respond to your requirements, you've just found the right company.
All our consultants have attained professional qualifications including CREST Certified Tester and CISSP, demonstrating the high standard to which we operate. We don't rest on our laurels though. Just as security threats evolve, so must our knowledge of them. We invest significantly in our staff with ongoing training and regular attendance at events across the IT industry, not just IT security.
Our consultants are also active members of various security organisations including ISACA and OWASP and can often be found speaking at various events on both technical and non-technical information security topics.
