Beaconsoft cybersecurity briefing

Beaconsoft cybersecurity briefing

Beaconsoft logoScale-Up Programme logo

Beaconsoft, a member of our Scale-Up Programme, is generously offering other members of the programme the opportunity to access its Veracity software for a free trial period of two months. After founding two companies with SETsquared support, Nigel Bridges, Founder of Beaconsoft, wants to be able to invest back into the community.

Veracity provides the ability to detect and defend against sophisticated bot attacks on web applications, mobile apps, and APIs.

According to Mastercard, more than half of all cyberattacks are committed against small-to-midsized businesses (SMBs), and 66% of SMBs had at least one cyber incident in the past two years.

Allowing bad bots to access systems can be very expensive for organisations in several ways, including:

  • loss of revenue associated with website downtime and/or performance degradation
  • increased operational expenses, including infrastructure costs, authentication expenses, and the people cost of the time spent on bot mitigation
  • regulatory penalties such as the huge fines imposed on organisations for breaches of, for example, GDPR or AML regulations
  • the intangible (and sometimes tangible) damage to brand reputation resulting from negative publicity and loss of customer confidence

This opportunity will be awarded to a limited number of companies, so join the briefing to find out more and for the chance to be selected.
