The Bunker joins The Cyberfort Group

Jan 25 2018

Data centre and managed service provider The Bunker is the first business to become part of Cyberfort Group. Following investment into The Bunker from Palatine Private Equity in July 2017, Cyberfort has been created to bring together leaders in the fields of data security and create a truly end-to-end security proposition. The Bunker will be joined by other businesses in the coming months – through both acquisition and organic creation. This week, The Bunker has rebranded and launched a new customer-optimised website as it continues to increase its market share in regulated industries, including fintech, healthcare and public sector. The Bunker runs two of the most physically secure data centres in the UK. Purpose-built to protect people in the event of a nuclear attack, these former command and control bunkers – acquired from the Ministry of Defence and US Air Force – now protect data from every potential threat that could compromise availability and integrity. They are armoured and nuclear bomb-proof. Phil Bindley, managing director at The Bunker said: “Being part of Cyberfort will allow us to enhance our offering and deliver the additional services that our customers have been asking for. This is an incredibly exciting time for all those associated with The Bunker. “Our facilities are truly unique. When you combine that with our state-of-the-art technology, and the knowledge and technical expertise within our team, we become a very attractive proposition for customers – particularly those that not only understand cyber risk but also see how its effective management can be a business enabler.” Andy Hague, CEO at Cyberfort Group said: “Cyberfort will bring together the very best in data security and we’ve started with the UK’s most physically secure data centre. The Bunker rightly has a reputation for long-term customer relationships and a strong security-centric offering and provides us with a world-class base to build from. “Cyber security will continue to move up business risk registers. As a Group we are perfectly placed to support companies at all stages of cyber maturity and will adapt and evolve as the risk and regulatory landscapes continue to change.”
