Reinventing Secure IT

Cyber risk is categorised as the third biggest risk for doing business according to the World Economic Forum. As we look to an increasingly cloud-based and mobile IT future, the cybersecurity situation has been getting steadily worse, with attackers seeing an opportunity for almost risk-free gain. A step change both in protective technologies and market correction, is required to redress the balance.

Garrison is working to make this change happen.

Our purpose

Something has to change – and it won’t be easy.

Reinventing IT is not for the faint-hearted. Luckily we have a phenomenal team working to make it happen. We are a truly deep tech company, applying security patterns developed by the National Security sector to develop enterprise solutions for the commercial world, laying the foundations for truly secure, flexible and scalable IT.
Fixing a broken cyber market

We believe that there are fundamental flaws in the economics of the cybersecurity market, and it turns out we're not alone. Research by Debate Security into the efficacy of cybersecurity technology shines a light on a cyber "market for lemons" (as defined in Akerlof's 1970s research) where information asymmetry is the source of a breakdown between buyer and seller, and starts to address how it can be fixed.
