    Our industry’s reliance on firewalls, network intrusion detection systems and the vigilance of a probably overstretched IT department to police cyber security threats is flawed, says Lance Savaria, the managing director of Limassol-headquartered Epsco-Ra Security Systems.

Epsco-Ra is not an IT vendor – it is a “pure security services company.” The service being offered is a scalable cyber security defence system that relieves companies of the need to hire expensive specialist IT personnel fluent in the language of cyber security and shipping.
