Our vision

To help organisations and their supply chains become better equipped for success in a cyber and information security conscious world.

Our mission

To revolutionise Information Security Management by equipping organisations with an affordable cloud solution that enables all ISMS and related work to be carried out in one secure environment. and its community of partners will satisfy the needs and expectations of those new to information security, and the improvers, right through to the experts and advisors.

Background grew out of Alliantist’s need to achieve ISO 27001 back in 2012.

We searched the market for suitable tools to implement ISO 27001 as ‘newbies’ to the standard. However there was little on the market to help, other than non-actionable document toolkits and a limited number of disjointed, and often expensive, tools that only solved part of the ISMS requirement. We like you wanted something different, to make life easier, cheaper and a better fit for our purpose.

That’s when we decided to use our existing trusted and powerful cloud software multi-tool, pam. We decided to build a unique and integrated approach to implementing and managing our ISMS. We proved that even ‘novices’ could successfully achieve a UKAS accredited ISO 27001 certification when given the right tools to make it easy.

We have now packaged that service into and continue to improve the experience. You can be sure it’s practical, easy to use and considerably cheaper and faster to achieve an accredited UKAS certified ISO 27001:2013 standard than you could get from alternatives, including building your own technology tool.


As you might expect we take information security seriously. We hold UKAS accredited certified ISO 27001:2013 across the organisation and our products. Our supply chain, including key delivery partners like data centre providers, are all world class too and hold the relevant certifications we demand of them too.

We also hold various other security credentials that include Cyber Essentials, and have regular penetration CHECK tests on the platform. We were the only service provider of our type to have achieved the then stringent Pan-Government Accreditation (it was so challenging that the government dropped it).  We continue to operate to that standard.

More reasons to trust in…

  • Data centres in secure UK locations across the UK that also meet world class levels of security
