Queens-awards-for-enterprise-InternationalTradeAs we celebrate our 10th anniversary this month, we are also celebrating winning the Queens award for our work within international trade. We are the first Qualified Security Assessor to receive this honour, and are one of seven businesses to win it in the Wiltshire area.

Over the 10 years, we have worked closely in shaping the policy with the PCI Security Standards Council since it was formed, as well as major card providers such as Visa and MasterCard.

Over the past four years, we have generated around 60% of our revenue from international sales. We have also opened new offices in Denver servicing North America, Sydney servicing Australasia, Frankfurt servicing Europe and São Paulo servicing Brazil through to 2018 and a new base in Singapore 2019.

As a company we offer a range of services, including Managed Detection and Response Services (MDR), Digital Forensics, Compliance and Risk Services. We are the world's leading certification company for payment systems on Point-to-Point (P2PE) encryption and after recently teaming up with Tranwall, we are a global authority on ATM Cashout attacks.

Previously, we have been recognised by The Sunday Times as one of the top 100 SME exporters in 2017 and 2018.

The Queen's Awards recognise the achievements of Great British Companies, and has done since 1965. Only a few companies receive this great accolade for their work, after several hundred applications.

Co-founder and CTO Andrew Bontoft comments: ‘It is testimony to the brilliant work and dedication of the team, both in the UK and across the globe, that we’ve received this prestigious award. We are very proud of what the team has achieved and grateful for the recognition that this award brings. We would also like to thank our clients and suppliers for helping us achieve this amazing honour.’

CEO Andrew Henwood comments: ‘Foregenix’s aim is to protect businesses and organisations from criminals who attempt to endanger people’s livelihoods and futures for their own enrichment. It is a cause that resonates with our customers, in offering practical advice, baked in security and tangible risk reduction globally. We are incredibly humbled to be recognised and bestowed this prestigious award!’
