The cyber security company Foregenix is opening a Singapore office. The Wiltshire-based firm opened its Asia Pacific (APAC) region base in Sydney, Australia in May 2017. Foregenix has set up operations in Uruguay, Brazil, Germany, South Africa and the USA. The company says it generates about 60 per cent of its revenue from international sales, which includes risk and compliance services including penetration testing, Digital Forensics and Incident Response plus its website and endpoint security solutions.
The Sunday Times named Foregenix as one of the UK’s fastest growing exporters in 2017 and 2018 in its SME Export Track 100.
Raymond Simpson, who heads up Foregenix’s operations in APAC, pictured, says: ‘There is strong demand in the region for fit-for-purpose and tailored cyber security services, which has led to substantial growth since we established our APAC headquarters in Sydney, now close on two years ago. The new Singapore office reflects the continuing demand as well as our commitment to building lasting partnerships and strong client relationships in the region.’
Foregenix CCO, Benjamin Hosack, says: ‘Singapore has a well-deserved reputation as a global centre of banking and technological innovation with an educated, cosmopolitan and highly talented workforce. This reflects our company culture, outlook and interests and is a fantastic base to continue to build our growing client base in Asia.
Andrew Henwood, Foregenix CEO, adds: “It is very much about delivering services which meet the specific needs of the local market while adding value to our clients in Asia by delivering the latest skills and up to the minute knowledge we have gained through our global operations.’
