Context's client base is second to none in terms of prestige, and has grown steadily since our launch in 1998, thanks in large part to word of mouth recommendations. We believe our success is based on our technical expertise, the effectiveness of our holistic approach, our independence, sensitivity to business issues and our discretion.
In a number of cases Context has been retained as a service provider by clients long after contracts signed with other IT security companies hired alongside us have not been renewed. In one case a major financial institution, with which we have been working for more than five years, is so satisfied with our work that it has actually altered a procurement policy specifically so that it could use Context as a sole supplier rather than having to hire a second company.
We have worked with a wide range of organisations of different types and sizes, across many different industries and sectors. Long-standing clients include global blue-chip companies from the financial, retail, legal, and defence sectors, as well as public sector and government organisations. For obvious reasons, our clients prefer not to advertise details of their security policies, but reference clients can be contacted on request.
