We are a technology and security company delivering projects using a mix of consultancy, products and services. Governments and commercial organisations around the world trust us to tackle important, information-intensive problems.


For instance, we help them to protect national security, detect and respond to advanced cyber attacks, combat fraud and get to know their customers. To solve challenges like these, we combine the latest technologies with our own domain knowledge and intellectual property and deliver them through a range of innovative services and products. Together they help us to create vital insights from big data.
Our services range from strategy formulation and business change through to software and hardware technologies, systems integration and managed service delivery.
