UK cloud and cyber security specialist, Stripe OLT, has increased its headcount by almost a third after accreditation as a Microsoft Gold Security Partner.
The business currently provides technology services for clients including Bristol Airport, Hargreaves Lansdown, and Sustrans.
Stripe OLT, which has bases in Bristol and in London, now has a staff of around 50, up by 28%.
Specialising in fintech, finance and healthcare, recent client wins include MoneySuperMarket Group for whom the business technology provider will deliver a variety of Microsoft solutions.
These client wins bring more reason to celebrate for the newly Microsoft Gold-Security-accredited business, whose Head of Cyber Security, Ryan Pullen, in April delivered a TEDx Talk on the topic on the dangers of social engineering.
The prestigious Microsoft Gold Security Partner status is testament to the hard work of the award-winning firm’s Security Operations Centre (SOC) team, which achieved the Microsoft Gold Security Competency in January.
Through successfully attaining the latest Microsoft certifications, the SOC team has demonstrated best-in-class capabilities at protecting sensitive data, managing user access and securing against cyber-threats.
Commenting on these impressive business growth figures since the Microsoft Gold Partnership, Ryan Pullen, Head of Cyber Security at Stripe OLT, said: “It’s been an incredible six months, we are welcoming new security analysts every month, and with so much demand, we’re now looking for an in-house talent manager to support us.
“It’s a time of great change and we are thrilled to be welcoming new clients, and new team members.”
From cyber security services to Microsoft cloud solutions, Stripe OLT’s mission is to provide cutting-edge business technology that secures data, enhances productivity, and nurtures growth.
In 2020, Stripe OLT rebranded, doubling in size, and expanding its client portfolio by over 40%.
The advantages of another Microsoft Gold certification has further built on the momentum of the recent re-brand.
Stripe OLT Client Director, Tom Robbins, said: “Since the pandemic, we have seen a spike in cyber security threats, and an increase in demand for complete solutions combining both cloud and cyber-security technologies. Our work at Bristol Airport is a great example of this full solution.”
“Utilising Microsoft 365 technologies, we helped implement a modern workplace solution, to simplify Bristol Airport’s internal processes and empower its workforce.”
Following the national lockdown, Stripe OLT has also added National Health Services and National Rail to its client list.
From its offices in London and Bristol, Stripe OLT provide Managed IT Support, Cloud Consultancy and Cyber-Security services, actively supporting and protecting critical infrastructures in established organisations throughout the UK.
With specialities across transport, finance, legal and healthcare, Stripe OLT’s clients include Bristol Airport, Hargreaves Lansdown, Sustrans, and Knotel.
