A County Tyrone tech company has landed a major cyber security contract with one of Europe’s biggest property investment platforms.
LoughTec, which is based in Omagh, sealed the deal with BidX1 which operates a platform that connects users across the world with real estate opportunities, enabling them to complete property transactions online.
BidX1 is headquartered in Dublin and operates across Ireland, the UK, South Africa, Spain and Cyprus.
LoughTec will implement BidX1’s new file scanning solution to ensure its files are protected from malware threats.
“As a rapidly growing business whose expertise is in high-value online transactions, cyber security is always top of mind for us,” Ebenezer Akintunde, Software Delivery Manager at BidX1, said. “It is our responsibility to ensure sensitive documents uploaded onto our platform by our customers are stored securely and that these documents are free from malicious software and viruses that could harm our business.”
“LoughTec is one of the leading Cyber Security systems providers worldwide and our research highlighted that they provide one of the most advanced file upload malware protection and detection solutions. This partnership with LoughTec gives us the confidence and assurance that every file system uploaded through our platform is malware and virus free, allowing us to focus on our core business of selling property.”
Jonathan Adams, Cyber Security Territory Manager at LoughTec, welcomed the deal.
“We are delighted to be working with a leading Irish organisation such as BidX1, a truly innovative firm and market-leaders in the digitalisation of property transactions,” he said. “Ebenezer and his team have been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to adding value to their IT security posture for many years to come.”
