Senior appointments and new Elements platform will continue
to drive impressive year-on-year growth.
LONDON, July 7, 2022
/PRNewswire/ -- BlueVoyant UK, an industry-leading cyber defence
platform company converging internal and external security, today
announced significant UK growth as it evolves the UK senior
leadership team and targets aggressive growth for BlueVoyant
Elements. Elements is the company's new outcomes-based,
cloud-native cyber defence platform that combines managed detection
and response, third-party cyber risk management, digital risk
protection, and expert professional services.
Since BlueVoyant acquired Marclay Associates in July 2021, it has enjoyed tremendous success.
With BlueVoyant UK opening its London-based security operations centre (SOC),
the number of local employees has grown by 230% across all business
units. Furthermore, sales revenue has increased 60% in the last
This sustained growth has seen the BlueVoyant global employee
base grow by 91% — to 650 — in the last 12 months, with the number
of customers working with BlueVoyant across all regions increasing
by more than 80% in the same period.
Cutting-edge solutions and technology partnerships central to
BlueVoyant's new Elements platform will help fuel this continued
growth with end-to-end cyber defence capabilities in a single
platform. Elements can be deployed as a full-spectrum solution or
as individual modules based on customers' requirements:
● BlueVoyant Core: MDR (Managed Detection &
● BlueVoyant Terrain: 3PR (Third-Party Cyber Risk
● BlueVoyant Sky: DRP (Digital Risk Protection)
● BlueVoyant Liquid: PS (Professional Services)
"BlueVoyant UK's threat intelligence capabilities, bespoke
insight-led consultancy, respected military heritage, strong
organisational culture and transparent and dedicated approach has
helped businesses across the UK and Europe defend themselves effectively," said
Jim Rosenthal, CEO, BlueVoyant. "As
a region of critical strategic importance for our continued global
growth, we are committed to building on our successes by providing
unrivalled expertise and service to customers, enabling firms to
deploy strong end-to-end cyber security as a value differentiator
with our Elements platform."
Helping to secure organisations' third-party supplier ecosystems
is a core focus for BlueVoyant UK. According to research, 97% of UK
respondents surveyed had experienced a direct cyber security data
breach because of supply chain weaknesses. BlueVoyant intelligence
also revealed that the average time to exploit new vulnerabilities
is just 12 days, against an average time to patch of 205 days.
Organisations are therefore in a race to patch and strengthen
the cyber defence posture of their own business, and those
organisations that sit within their supply chain. This is where
BlueVoyant is differentiated in the market; it can rapidly produce
vulnerability analytics and communicate urgent actions across the
supply chain within two hours.
BlueVoyant's award-winning partnership with Microsoft –
including being named a design partner for its new security
services portfolio and being recognised as the 2022
Microsoft U.S. Security Partner of the Year Winner – will enable
BlueVoyant UK to expand its market-leading managed security
services capabilities throughout the UK and Europe, through its Core:
Furthermore, BlueVoyant's existing global partnership with
Splunk will enable organisations across the UK and Europe to layer existing Splunk investments
with military-grade cyber security expertise. It is also set to
expand professional services capabilities from the UK into
Europe and Asia.
"BlueVoyant's momentum in the UK and Europe has demonstrated the requirement for
co-managed end-to-end cyber security solutions," added James Tamblin, president and CEO of BlueVoyant
UK. "However, the threat from increasingly sophisticated
adversaries and cyber risk vectors, both directly and through the
supply chain, remains a serious challenge to organisations' overall
resilience. This is why we're working closely with UK private and
public sector organisations, including those within the critical
national infrastructure, to help manage cyber security supply chain
Senior appointments driving regional momentum
To help continue BlueVoyant UK's momentum, the senior leadership
team has evolved with the appointments of James McDowell as chief operating officer (COO),
Leigh Glasper as director of cyber
advisory, and Tom Moore as head
of digital forensics and incident response – alongside Tamblin's
new additional role as UK CEO.
McDowell joined BlueVoyant's UK business in October 2020 in its previous guise, before moving
into his current role as COO. McDowell will utilise his experience
as an established cyber security director to build long-lasting
relationships with BlueVoyant UK's customers, and help to deliver
on BlueVoyant UK's go-to-market strategy.
With 14 years of experience delivering intelligence and cyber
consultancy to UK government, national security, and private sector
clients, Glasper — as director of cyber advisory —oversees all
aspects of client delivery and professional services
capability development for public and private sector customers. He
also delivers cyber advisory to clients and security leaders on all
defensive cyber operations and transformation aspects.
In his role as Head of Digital Forensics and Incident Response
for BlueVoyant, Moore oversees a team of experts that assists
clients in identifying, responding to and recovering from all kinds
of incidents involving information systems and digital evidence.
This includes everything from cyber security breaches and attacks
to dealing with insider threats, industrial espionage, litigation
support, and a wide range of other legal and regulatory
"Talent is one of the three key pillars underpinning our new
Elements platform," said Tamblin. "Therefore, James, Leigh,
and Tom's leadership strengths and experience will be invaluable in
achieving our regional growth aspirations. This will help to
position BlueVoyant as the leading cyber security defence platform
throughout the UK and Europe."
BlueVoyant converges internal and external cyber
defence capabilities into an outcomes-based, cloud-native
platform called BlueVoyant Elements. Elements continuously monitors
your network, endpoints, attack surface, and supply chain as well
as the open, deep, and dark web for vulnerabilities, risks, and
threats; and takes action to protect your business, leveraging both
machine learning-driven automation and human-led expertise.
Elements can be deployed as independent solutions or together as a
full-spectrum cyber defence platform. BlueVoyant's approach to
cyber defence revolves around three key pillars — technology,
telemetry, and talent — that deliver rock-solid cyber
defence capabilities to more than 700 customers across the
