February saw Identity Experts on the move when we relocated to larger premises within The Media Centre in Huddersfield.
Commenting on the move Identity Experts Director Paul Green said, “We experienced unprecedented growth towards the back end of 2016, with new customer wins meaning we needed to expand our staff numbers.
“This isn’t a surprise really as identity management is becoming more high profile for an increasing number of organisations. With regular stories in the press of data losses and the subsequent damage to reputation, organisations are looking at ways to protect themselves and identity management can help with that.”
Identity management will be central to IT strategy
Paul continued, “Our success has been built on our extensive knowledge of and experience of working with world-leading Microsoft technologies.
“In particular, our skills in implementing the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) suite are second to none. This has seen us help organisations as diverse as global law firms and NHS Trusts design, implement and support their identity management solutions.
“As the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be coming into force in 2018, the obligations on, and responsibilities of, organisations handling data will grow. With the prospect of huge fines for breaches of the regulations, many organisations are coming to realise that identity management needs to be at the core of their IT strategy going forward.
“EMS will help deliver that whether your infrastructure is on-premise or in the cloud, using traditional PCs or mobile devices. EMS meets these diverse challenges by providing one protected common identity for secure access to all corporate resources. This data is then protected with innovative security technologies – including powerful machine learning to protect data from new and changing cyber security attacks
“The new offices, being centrally located in the UK, will enable us to continue to service all of our customers as well as providing ample space for the expansion we envisage for 2017.”
