South African information security services and training company Telspace Systems will be establishing an EU-based office during the Infosecurity Europe event at the end of April this year. 
Telspace Systems has been successfully operating in Johannesburg since 2002. The company offers information security services including attack and penetration testing, Web application assessments, vulnerability assessments, and security consulting.
Telspace Systems also has a training division which offers practical courses such as the highly-anticipated Ethical Hacking 101, and the popular Wireless and Bluetooth Hacking. These courses are often presented at high-level government and internationally-recognised security conferences.
The new office, which will be situated in central London, will provide much the same services as the Johannesburg-based office, although the company is always developing new training courses and services into its existing portfolio.
“For the past few years we have been extensively servicing companies globally. We feel it is the right time to have a physical presence in Europe for our customers, especially since we have already seen a number of parties interested in investing in our European operations,” says Shaun Levy, sales and recruitment director of Telspace Systems.
Telspace Systems currently services clients across Europe, Africa, Malaysia, UAE and America. “We already have an extensive base of EU clients,” explains Levy.
“The information security industry is growing at a rapid rate and as a result, many organisations are demanding our top quality services,” according to Telspace Systems CEO, Dino Covotsos.
“Our decision to establish an EU footprint gives us the opportunity to expand on a global scale, which has always been a part of our corporate mission.”
“Having an office in the EU enables us to hire more technically-aligned staff, which benefits our South African clients by providing them with a carefully-selected team of top international analysts,” adds Levy.
The company is currently in the final stages of interviewing for the management position at its soon-to-be-launched EU office.
“We thought a good time to officially open our EU office would be during Infosecurity Europe at which we will be exhibiting,” explains Levy.
Infosecurity Europe is taking place at Earl Court in UK this year, between 23 and 25 April, and is considered to be the top information security event in Europe.
