Kocho has been included in CyberTech100, the annual list of the world’s most innovative cyber technology companies within the financial services industry.

Selected by a panel of industry experts and analysts, CyberTech100 identifies the cybertech companies that every financial institution needs to know about as they consider and develop their information security and financial crime-fighting strategies.

Delivering a unique security focus in the financial services sector

The award is further recognition of the specialist expertise and extensive customer base that Kocho has built up within the financial services sector, which accounts for over 40% of the company’s revenues.

It follows hot on the heels of Kocho being named in the World’s Top 5 Managed Service Providers (MSP) for Financial Services by leading US technology and IT website, ChannelE2E, which also listed the company as 26th in the overall list of the top 100 vertical MSPs globally.

As a leading Microsoft Gold Partner, Kocho has won Microsoft Partner of the Year no fewer than eight times for its identity and cyber security services.

Kocho provides a unique combination of cyber security, identity, cloud transformation, and managed IT and security services to enterprise and mid-sized organisations within the financial services and insurance sector.

It is ideally positioned to tailor cloud-based services to individual needs while helping financial services organisations to comply with strict regulations.

As a company at the forefront of the cyber security industry, Kocho’s Security Operations Centre (SOC) recently launched an Extended Detection and Response (XDR) service based on Microsoft Sentinel and Defender, harnessing the power of cloud AI, and combined with endpoint monitoring and threat intelligence to assess risk and identify potential threats.

A word from our Director of Security

“Our ability to provide a combination of both managed IT services and managed security services means that we are able to provide our clients with the complete solution and peace of mind,” said Jacques Fourie, our Director of Information Security. “We manage risk for our clients and ensure that they are compliant at all times, and this, in turn, allows them to focus on other important things like growing and managing their business.”
