Bridewell is proud to have won ‘Santander Growing Business of the Year: Turnover £10m – £25m’ at this year’s Growing Business Awards.

Amongst a strong category with finalists from other leading businesses across the UK, Bridewell stood out for its “clear vision, track record and an ambitious plan to take on and disrupt existing large players in the market”, according to the judges. They also praised Bridewell’s “passionate founders and strong management team, built for further global growth.”

“Coming into this year, the expectations were high. 2021 was a phenomenal year and we’re happy to have kept that momentum throughout 2022. We’re proud to have our achievements over this past year recognised at last night’s awards, including becoming carbon-negative, opening our new state-of-the-art SOC, and expanding to the US with our new office in Houston, Texas.

2022 Highlights

First Carbon Negative Cyber Security Firm in the UK

This year we became the UK’s first carbon-negative cyber security firm. Through a combination of initiatives, including a switch to renewable energy, offsetting and climate projects, Bridewell went beyond traditional carbon reporting requirements in the GHG Protocol. As of today, we’ve offset 1,728 tonnes of CO2 emissions and planted over 23,000 trees.

Expansion into the US

In March of this year, we opened a new office in Houston’s Energy Corridor to better serve the needs of our existing client base in the US and work with new clients in the region.

Opening Bridewell’s New SOC

With the opening of our new SOC in Wales, Bridewell has been able to drive further improvements in our Managed Security Services. Providing 24/7 security capabilities for our customers, it is our largest property investment to date and represents the next step in Bridewell’s journey to becoming a globally recognised cyber security services provider.

Beyond these major milestones, we’ve also refreshed our brand to Bridewell and appointed a new Director of Consulting. We’re in an exciting period of growth and we look forward to seeing what 2023 brings!
