Theale, Reading, Tuesday 29 May, 2012: Integralis Ltd., a global provider of IT Security and Information Risk Management solutions today announces the appointment of Tom Salkield to the position of Professional Services Director (UK).
Tom will drive forward the development of Integralis’ professional services organisation to deliver Technology, Information Security and Governance, Risk and Compliance practices. These enable customers to meet the challenges of reducing costs while managing their risk and meeting the demands of regulators to demonstrate they are taking the appropriate security measures.
Over the last 15 years Tom has built up experience both in IT security technology and business management. Prior to taking up the position with Integralis he was a Director at Capgemini, where he held senior leadership roles driving business transformation for clients facing security challenges. Previously he established and built up the highly successful security practice at NetStore. At Integralis, Tom will be growing the Managed and Professional Services operations expanding the portfolio of services and developing organisational capability to ensure that Integralis continues to be at the forefront of IT security.
Neal Lillywhite, Integralis UK Managing Director, said, “Integralis continues to expand its provision of IT security and information risk management solutions worldwide. Tom has an excellent understanding of the business challenges that our clients are facing and has the security technology expertise to build on the success of the Integralis professional services team. With Tom on board, we look forward to continuing the great work that led to our MSS services being rated ‘Strong Positive’ in the Gartner MarketScope for Managed Security Services (MSSs) in Europe report, 2011.*”
Commenting on his appointment Tom Salkield, said, “In a survey conducted at the recent Infosecurity Europe event we found that the decision to choose Managed Security Services (MSS) is no longer driven by mainly financial considerations, businesses are also looking at it from a threat perspective. CSOs considering MSS are looking at it not only to reduce cost, but also to reduce risk and get the best skills within their organisation. We have the expertise to understand information security from the business context and apply it to the technology solutions. There is a phenomenal depth of expertise in this company and I am looking forward to working with the team to help businesses meet their security challenges.”
