Baking Cyber Security into Web Development

logo_hbsAs experts in web development, web marketing and IT solutions, HBS Consultants wanted to protect clients from cyber attacks by providing them with a proactive, intelligent and PCI compliant security solution. To achieve this they turned to Foregenix.

The Challenge

Cybercrime costs businesses across the globe an estimated £265bn* and in the UK alone, 93% of large corporations and 87% of small businesses reported a cyber-breach in the past year.

As specialists in web development, web marketing and IT solutions for the past 21 years, HBS Consultants had recognised the rapidly-growing-and-changing threatscape for online businesses and had been searching for effective web security solutions to complement the host of services that they provide their clients. Finding that most security solutions are complex, expensive and focused towards large corporates with strong security skills, HBS Consultants turned to Foregenix as a security specialist partner to improve the security expertise offered to their clients.
