NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE, England, June 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Newcastle-based Payment Card Industry (PCI) and information assurance experts Security Risk Management Ltd (SRM) has joined forces with US firm Security Metrics (SM) to provide full support and sales services for SM's award-winning cyber security solutions in the UK and Europe. The accord will be officially launched at PCI London on 30th June.
The deal was finalised on 26th June when Security Metric's VP Strategic Partners, Wenlock Free visited SRM's headquarters in Newcastle-upon-Tyne with SRM CEO Tom Fairfax and Director Brian Fenwick.
It has been praised by Tracey Long of World Pay who says: "This is a great move on the part of both SRM and Security Metrics, as this demonstrates the ability for two highly recognised Security Risk Management companies to offer services across the globe. By joining forces in this manner can only have a positive effect in security for customers throughout the payments industry."
Well-established as European-wide information security consultants, SRM's existing clients also include UK government departments, major retailers, multi-national companies, charities and other non-commercial organisations in addition to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). SRM is one of only nineteen approved Payment Card Industry (PCI) forensic investigators in the world (one of 5 operating in Europe).
Security Metrics provides an award-winning range of security products including those promoting PCI and HIPAA compliance.
Brian Fenwick of SRM says, "It was difficult for Security Metrics to service clients in Europe because of the different time zones and they needed a partner with a similar outlook and dedication to customer service. Our accord means that SRM will provide consultancy services for all Security Metrics clients within the UK and Europe. We will also provide access to all Security Metric platforms for new clients within the same area.
"It's a win-win situation. The new partnership will provide first class consultancy expertise within the UK and Europe while giving merchants access to award-winning platforms."
