BlueVoyant UK, a cyber defence platform company converging internal and external security, has announced significant UK growth as it evolves the UK senior leadership team and targets aggressive growth for BlueVoyant Elements.
Elements is the company’s new outcomes-based, cloud-native cyber defence platform that combines managed detection and response, third-party cyber risk management, digital risk protection and expert professional services.
Since BlueVoyant acquired Marclay Associates in July 2021, it has enjoyed tremendous success. With BlueVoyant UK opening its London-based security operations centre (SOC), the number of local employees has grown by 230% across all business units. Furthermore, sales revenue has increased 60% in the last year.
This sustained growth has seen the BlueVoyant global employee base grow by 91% — to 650 — in the last 12 months, with the number of customers working with BlueVoyant across all regions increasing by more than 80% in the same period.
Cutting-edge solutions and technology partnerships central to continued growth
BlueVoyant’s new Elements platform will help fuel this continued growth with end-to-end cyber defence capabilities in a single platform. Elements can be deployed as a full-spectrum solution or as individual modules based on customers’ requirements:
● BlueVoyant Core: MDR (Managed Detection & Response)
● BlueVoyant Terrain: 3PR (Third-Party Cyber Risk Management)
● BlueVoyant Sky: DRP (Digital Risk Protection)
● BlueVoyant Liquid: PS (Professional Services)
“BlueVoyant UK’s threat intelligence capabilities, bespoke insight-led consultancy, respected military heritage, strong organisational culture and transparent and dedicated approach has helped businesses across the UK and Europe defend themselves effectively,” said Jim Rosenthal, CEO, BlueVoyant. “As a region of critical strategic importance for our continued global growth, we are committed to building on our successes by providing unrivalled expertise and service to customers, enabling firms to deploy strong end-to-end cybersecurity as a value differentiator with our Elements platform.”
Helping to secure organisations’ third-party supplier ecosystems is a core focus for BlueVoyant UK. According to research, 97% of UK respondents surveyed had experienced a direct cybersecurity data breach because of supply chain weaknesses. BlueVoyant intelligence also revealed that the average time to exploit new vulnerabilities is just 12 days, against an average time to patch of 205 days.
Organisations are therefore in a race to patch and strengthen the cyber defence posture of their own business and those organisations that sit within their supply chain. This is where BlueVoyant is differentiated in the market; it can rapidly produce vulnerability analytics and communicate urgent actions across the supply chain within two hours.
BlueVoyant’s award-winning partnership with Microsoft – including being named a design partner for its new security services portfolio and being recognised as the 2022 Microsoft US Security Partner of the Year Winner – will enable BlueVoyant UK to expand its managed security services capabilities throughout the UK and Europe, through its Core: MDR offering.
Furthermore, BlueVoyant’s existing global partnership with Splunk will enable organisations across the UK and Europe to layer existing Splunk investments with military-grade cybersecurity expertise. It is also set to expand professional services capabilities from the UK into Europe and Asia.
“BlueVoyant’s momentum in the UK and Europe has demonstrated the requirement for co-managed end-to-end cybersecurity solutions,” added James Tamblin, President and CEO of BlueVoyant UK. “However, the threat from increasingly sophisticated adversaries and cyber risk vectors, both directly and through the supply chain, remains a serious challenge to organisations’ overall resilience. This is why we’re working closely with UK private and public sector organisations, including those within the critical national infrastructure, to help manage cybersecurity supply chain risks.”
