Experts representing more than 30 years of experience in cyber security
EPSCO-Ra was formed in February 2016 when Ra Security and EPSCO Group saw the emerging cyber security threats in the maritime community. The two organizations came together to develop the ultimate maritime cyber security solution. Drawing from the security strengths of Ra Security, a U.S. based cyber security company, and the maritime experience of EPSCO Group, a Cyprus based maritime services company with offices in Hamburg, Singapore, and the United States, EPSCO-Ra harnesses the power of two industry leaders. Together, they offer the maritime industry a solution to their cyber security problems that is tailor-made to acknowledge the nuances of the maritime industry.
Today, although we have honed our service and experience towards maritime, we now implement our solutions in a broad spectrum of industries.
