About Falanx

Falanx Cyber Defence protect and defend businesses against cyber security threats. Partnering with its clients, the company uses its expertise, vigilance, tools and technology to provide cyber threat prevention to businesses across all key sectors.

Birmingham became the new location for the expanding firm. With increased risk of cyber-attack, fast growing usage of data, and the forthcoming implementation of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) being implemented next year, companies have never faced higher risks in their exposure to security threats. With increased demand for the services offered by Falanx Cyber Defence, the company viewed Birmingham as the location to help it respond to this demand and accommodate its expanding client-base.

Falanx Cyber Defence relocated to Birmingham in October 2016, after assessing a number of possible locations. Chief Executive Stuart Bladen, commented:

“We decided Birmingham was going to be the best place to grow our business due to its location, talent pool and affordability. Our highly skilled team are based all over the country, so positioning our head office somewhere with great access and transportation links were essential. As our business grows, we’re really hoping to capitalise on the huge amount of talent graduating from local universities.

“Since opening our Birmingham office, we’ve grown our team by over 50% and have ambitious plans to grow our business even further throughout the rest of the year. We’re experts in all things security, and are looking forward to hosting regular events at our Birmingham office to help educate businesses about cyber security”.

Falanx Cyber Security can help businesses whose needs for cyber resilience is rooted in both remaining compliant or mitigating risk. The company offers a complete range of services including Cyber Essentials, Penetration Testing, Incident Response, Consultancy, and Protective Monitoring.
