About e2e-assure

e2e-assure is a Threat Detection and Response business specialising in providing Security operations Centre (SOC)-as-a-Service, alongside MDR (Managed Detection and Response), vulnerability scanning and monitoring. A SOC is a centralised function that uses a combination of people, technology, and processes to monitor, detect, prevent, and respond to cyber-attacks or threats.

Since its creation, the Oxfordshire based company has raised over 10 million in a seed funding round. The company’s mission is to innovate and disrupt faster than threat actors to pre-empt and neutralise their tactics and techniques to protect mid-market, enterprise, and small businesses through agile and proactive Threat Detection and Response services.

In the late 1990s, the founder, Rob Demain, was involved in connecting banks to the internet for the first time and creating systems and gateways for them to connect securely. After working for a start-up, he set up his own consultancy business with a friend in the mid 2000s, at a time when banks began introducing SOCs on top of their then basic cyber security capabilities. After noticing that many companies were spending a fortune on technology but still did not have the resource to operate cyber security effectively, Rob set-up e2e-assure in 2013.

According to a recent Gartner report, challenges confronting CISOs are evolving beyond technology, cyber security or controls, and by 2025, lack of talent or human failure will be responsible for over half of significant cyber incidents. The aim of e2e-assure is to deliver the most advanced and effective Threat Detection and Response service in the UK through continuous innovation and staff skill development. e2e-assure’s 24/7 SOC coverage utilises a unique in-house built sophisticated Alerting & Case Management platform, Cumulo. This can be used by client security teams, integrated with existing tools and deployed in standalone or multi-tenant configuration. This maximises exiting investments, reduces license volume, and consolidates security tools resulting in increased efficiency and reduced costs.

As cyber security attacks become more sophisticated and technology such as AI is creating more advanced and rapid threats, e2e-assure’s managed service business has grown by 50% in the last 12 months. The company is also investing heavily in scaling automation and proactive response techniques to immediately counter increasingly complex threats.

e2e-assure focuses heavily on its social impact through a successful and highly regarded neurodiversity hiring initiative. The company has a long-standing relationship with the IASME Consortium, and Autism Plus which support neurodiverse people with training and employment. Adapting its recruitment process to be more inclusive, including removing compulsory in person interviews and creating open job descriptions that focus more on individual skills, to date 10% of the e2e-assure workforce identifies as neurodiverse which is representative of the national population.
