Dubbed “The benchmark for outstanding performance throughout the UK computer industry.” According to their website, “The awards focus on the contribution of individuals, projects, organisations and technologies that have excelled in the use, development and deployment of IT in the past 12 months.”

Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, great service, and teams of highly experienced professionals, Foregenix are experiencing rapid growth and delivering great results for clients. This combination has caught the eye of multiple award institutions from across the country.

We have been closely involved with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) since 2004, with our CEO, Andrew Henwood, being closely linked to the creation of the PCI DSS as we see it today.
