Meet the team
Guardian Technologies was set up by two colleagues Barrie and Rupert back in 2010. Initially to provide fledgling data loss prevention (DLP) software to small/ medium sized organisations. However, it became clear that unless organisations understand their information types, lifecycle and value, then tools such as DLP are very limited. From this the proposition to focus on helping clients to categorise, classify and minimize their information was created. Guardian Technologies is focussed on protecting the information at the core of the organisation. Perimeter, network, endpoint and application security are very important but unless the information itself is protected then all other security is compromised.
We are a small, dynamic team of experts, able to move quickly to meet your individual business requirements, all experts within their field. Our team has over 30 years’ experience within the IT data security sector, so we are perfectly placed to provide you with the right solution to solve your individual data security challenges. Committed to finding the right technology solution to your business. We are able to work with limited budgets to help provide information protection to small/ medium sized businesses.
This message is gaining clear support as organisations understand the value of their information and can justify budgets to protect it more easily.
