Benefits of the weaker pound

In September 2019, the pound fell to its lowest value since the post-Brexit referendum ‘flash crash’ of 2016, and its lowest sustained value since 1985, with £1 worth as little as $1.1959 at one point. At the time of writing, £1 is worth $1.25 or €1.15. And with seemingly endless uncertainty as to the impacts of both the unfolding coronavirus pandemic and the United Kingdom’s exit from the EU, the pound does not look likely to shoot up in value any time soon.

At the same time, the ongoing coronavirus crisis means that remote working and cloud-based delivery models have rapidly been adopted across an array of organizational processes. Myriad business sectors are recognizing just how efficient and effective expert consultancy can be when delivered remotely – provided that the technology is there to underpin their work.

US-based organizations looking to enhance their cybersecurity posture can do so at a great price point, by taking advantage of a weaker pound combined with world-class cybersecurity consultancy and cloud-based delivery.

Introducing SureCloud’s Cybersecurity-as-a-Service © (CaaS) model

As-a-service delivery models have proliferated enormously in recent years across many different areas of enterprise IT and professional services.

SureCloud has now launched Cybersecurity-as-a-Service© (CaaS), which enables us to offer cybersecurity expertise accredited by the British government to organizations based all over the world, absolutely tailored to individual business needs.

Because the results of consulting engagements (both technical and advisory) are made available – and actionable – immediately through our intuitive cloud-based platform, CaaS enables an incredibly agile and responsive approach to identifying and remediating vulnerabilities.

CaaS allows Boards of Directors to ascertain information on their businesses’ cybersecurity posture immediately, whether the conclusions and actions from an urgent incident response, or the outcomes from a planned test or audit. And it contextualizes that information in terms of key business processes, empowering stakeholders to interrogate security data themselves.

Available through three levels of subscription, each stage building on from the previous so that organizations can move up as they grow and their cybersecurity program develops. CaaS is a truly flexible and business-centric approach to cybersecurity, crucial in today’s dynamic threat landscape. The mission behind Cybersecurity-as-a-Service is to make cybersecurity a ‘built-in’ rather than a ‘bolt-on’.

The best of both worlds

Nevertheless, offshore service models can still give organizations pause for thought. Common anxieties include differing time zones leading to availability gaps, cultural differences, and, in terms of cybersecurity and compliance, regulatory and legislative disparities between different jurisdictions. This can mean that the approach to cybersecurity propounded by an offshore company does not meet the local requirements of the customer organization.

This is why SureCloud has ensured a truly ‘best of both worlds’ approach.

With a full team of US-based account managers – and US-based data centers – we can fully accommodate US business needs. There is always someone available to answer your queries and, where relevant, your data is stored in onshore data centers. We are proud to hold strong cybersecurity accreditations, including CREST and CHECK certifications, which are relevant to organizations worldwide, but we also have a substantial track record in working to the specific legislative and regulatory needs of US-based businesses, across a range of industries.

Shifting to wholescale remote working has been a substantial gear change for many companies, but not SureCloud – we have been working like this since inception, back in 2006. And our flexible price points charged monthly, make for a truly cost-effective approach to cybersecurity.

‘Offshore Britain’ might not be a core part of your corporate lexicon today, but it could deliver substantial security benefits for your business tomorrow.
