SMEs often underestimate the threat and impact they face from Cyber-crime and as a result around 65% of SMEs have suffered a cyber-attack in the last 2 years!

This threat is only getting worse making threat protection and security more important than ever.


Up to 88% of all UK companies suffered breaches in the last 12 months.

Average time it takes to identify a security breach: 228 days.

Average amount of data that companies manage to restore following a breach: 65%.

According to IBM, it takes on average 228 days to detect and determine that you have been compromised.

Why is this such a long period?


Bad actors have been known to gather intelligence before they strike, which means they go out of their way to cover up their digital footprints and wait for opportunities to exploit.


During this espionage period, they can plant various other methods of entry (back-doors) and begin stealing data.


If you do not have the necessary threat monitoring or analytics, and security expertise, it is very difficult to detect this type of behaviour.

Why choose a managed security service?


Proactive approach to cyber security

Most IT departments and MSPs are still reactive to cyber threats and only take action when something has happened and when it’s too late or very difficult to remediate.


Mitigate risks before they become a threat

Your organisation is at risk if you do not proactively mitigate events before they become issues.


Partner with credible security expertise

Codestone has partnered with next-generation threat protection experts Bulletproof to deliver credible, managed security solutions to your organisation.

Managed Security Operations Centre (SOC)

Our managed 24/7 SOC gives you the advanced protection you need to proactively defend against any threats and suspicious behaviour relevant to your business. It identifies weaknesses and indicators of attack to reduce the chance of your business being compromised.

Safe Guard

Safeguard your business from complex cyber threats.


Detect suspicious behaviour, events and vulnerabilities and quickly act on them.

Computer learning

Reduce alert fatigue using Machine Learning to filter out false-positive alerts.


Get peace of mind that a specialist team is proactively protecting your entire network.


Protect your SaaS applications.


No additional Microsoft licensing required.

We apply human expertise to your SOC using specialist tools like the powerful SIEM (Security Information Event Management) from our threat protection partner Bulletproof. SIEM searches millions of logs in milliseconds to cut through noise so that outcomes are escalated directly to you and reduces the risk of an attack.

SOC intelligently learns how you operate by customising the service according to how you run your business. For example, if a user logs onto your system at 03:00, is this normal activity? If not, an automated process will commence to defend your network from this perceived threat.
