Four ways to become more secure


Advanced Threat
Protection and Response

With any data breach, you need to detect it fast to minimise any potential damage.  Our Advanced Threat Detection and Response service - powered by Gartner's 12 time recommended SIEM tech IBM QRadar - monitors data across your infrastructure and network and raises alerts for any suspicious activity.


Veeam Secure

74% of councils store data on the cloud, but the majority don't test their disaster recovery backups.  We use Veeam's industry-leading backup services to host a secure, off-site backup of your important data to keep you protected against accidental deletion, security threats and data retention policies.


Authentication (MFA)

80% of security breaches involve a compromised password.  MFA is the easiest way to stop a malicious user from accessing your data with a leaked password.  Every boxxer uses Okta because it's the best MFA solution on the market - speak to us to find out why.


Managed Email

3x as many malicious emails are clicked on since many of us started working remotely.  Powered by Mimecast, our Secure Email Gateway service ensures data carried via email is safe and secure.

What they say about us

We received an excellent service from boxxe and greatly appreciated their flexibility in helping us achieve our aims for this project in a very limited time frame before the submarines went back out to sea.  We have an additional four submarines which will require Flagstone installations during the next 12 months and fully intend to return for boxxe to do this for us.”

Mark Anthony , Network and Communications Manager, Tomahawk Strike

“I know that no matter what the challenge might be, I can go to boxxe and say, ‘I’ve got this issue here.  What are your thoughts about it?’ and get a solid answer back.  I’ve never had to go back and question them.”

John Allan , IT Team Manager, Clackmannanshire Council

"Working with boxxe has been a fantastic experience, they saw my vision and brought it to life, adding their own innovative and forward-thinking ideas.  It’s paved the way to Thirteen Group being Microsoft-first in our future developments."

Jayne Allport , Head of Service, Systems & Application Improvement, Thirteen Group
