We’re delighted to announce that Kocho is an award winner yet again. This time picking up a prestigious prize at the 2023 Computing Security Excellence Awards.

It goes without saying that we’re delighted to win the Security Project of the Year Award. A recognition of the work we did with Liontrust, the UK-headquartered specialist fund and asset management company. And of the way we helped the secure migration of their operations to the cloud.

Liontrust and Kocho: Better together

With £33.8 billion assets under its management, it’s no surprise that Liontrust takes security and compliance incredibly seriously.

Faced with an increasing number of phishing attacks targeting the financial sector, stringent rules around data protection, and the adoption of home-based working, Liontrust turned to Kocho to bolster its security defences and processes. Thanks to our Security Posture Assessment (SPA) service, together with our ongoing Managed Security Services, Liontrust has seen a significant uplift in its overall cyber security posture.

Held at the historic Moorgate Place in London, the computing award ceremony was attended by members of Kocho’s senior management and project delivery team. And we were delighted to be joined by Ross Carmichael and Paul Mathanarajah from Liontrust.

Keeping the successes coming Kocho’s way

This is the second accolade in two weeks for the Kocho team, which was also found celebrating at the recent global Digital Revolution Awards 2023.

With entrants from North America, the DACH region, and in the UK, this award celebrates all the organisations and individuals who harness cloud technology as a force for good across the world.

Kocho was ‘Highly Commended’ in the Best Microsoft Partner To Work For category, in recognition of our commitment to our people and our deep Microsoft expertise.
