Along with our partners we offer a range of products that can strengthen and give you complete visibility over your ICS network. Speak with TES Cybersafe today.

The number of attacks on ICS environments has been consistently doubling year on year, meaning that it is only a matter of time before you experience an attack. TES Cybersafe are here to help you prepare your organisation and staff to recognise and prevent attacks and to also help you recover in the event of a successful attack.

TES have both Information Technology and Operation Technology teams in-house, with vast water and power industry experience. This puts us in a unique position to help protect your systems against attacks through training your employees, testing your systems and recommending security systems and processes to remain safe from attack.
TES can install and maintain security systems to safeguard your system from a cyber-attack occurring and can provide emergency assistance in the event of an attack successfully being carried out.
