Defence and security

Welcome to our defence and security hub

Secure digital transformation at the heart of the mission

Against a landscape of rapidly changing international priorities, we transform digital capabilities to deliver secure and resilient digital services that are adaptable to the complex and competitive nature of the strategic defence context.

Across the Front-Line Commands and Enabling Organisations, we bring together expertise in architecture, data, cyber, cloud engineering, DevSecOps and agile delivery to meet the increasing complex demands of defence organisations.

Exploiting information for decision advantage

As the volume of information available in the operational environment grows and the need to make decisions at greater tempo increases, it’s essential to be able to exploit data at every level of command.

Our team of data scientists and AI/ML experts work alongside you to make sense of disparate information and intelligence sources. We build data exploitation platforms to fuse sources, find hidden connections, build predictive and statistical models, develop visualisations, and automatically interpret imagery. Our experience allows us to reduce the cognitive burden of operators while increasing data accuracy, integrity, and provenance to accelerate decision-making cycles.

Supporting our armed forces

We are proud to support our armed forces and have a number of veterans and reservists among our staff who provide front-line experience and insight.

We are an active member of the ADS Group with representation on the Security Sector Board, the Defence SME working group and are an ADS industry representative at the UK’s Security and Resilience Industry Suppliers Community (RISC) which serves as the principal channel of communication between the UK security and resilience industry, the Homeland Security Group (HSG) within the Home Office, and other government departments and agencies on security-related requirements and policy issues.

Facing the cyber challenge

Information is both an enabler and an effector. As advantage is increasingly established through the exploitation of data, there is a growing imperative to protect this key asset from malicious attacks by the nation’s adversaries.

We bring our experience of secure-by-design solutions and our expertise in defensive cyber operations to holistically address cyber security risk in the contested data-centric environment. Our experience of red teaming and penetration testing, along with our cyber research lab and its links to NCSC-accredited academic institutions, ensure we remain at the forefront of understanding and addressing the threats facing the UK.
