Who are you?

ThreadStone Cyber Security develops reliable and practical vulnerability management solutions for SMEs. We do this by using ThreadScans which accurately and understandably identify vulnerabilities. René van Etten, founder and general manager of ThreadStone, explains that the client’s own IT specialist can then use the assessment as a guide to better secure the organisation against cyber intrusions on, for instance, the website, email server, router, and more. We also operate from the European cloud and adapt to the ever more stringent regulations for storing data outside Europe.

What made you choose LeaderTelecom?

Making the European internet safer is our prime objective and to achieve that LeaderTelecom provides us with a vital service.

When did your partnership start?

There is an abundance of information out there, but what we offer is a product that specifically maps out the weak spots. We started in 2014 and went looking for an SSL certificate supplier. This is when LeaderTelecom came to our attention. With an SSL Certificate you manage the encryption of data traffic to and from your website. This is indispensable for a provider of online security for business owners. Their competitive rate is ultimately what made us decide to partner up with them. From the very start, LeaderTelecom lifted a load off our shoulders.

How were communications with LeaderTelecom?

Initially, all contact was easily done online and by telephone. Soon after, René ran into Aleksei, the founder of LeaderTelecom at one of the events of the Hague Security Delta (HSD). Both entrepreneurs turned out to be HSD members and attended the presentation of the Cyber Security prize awarded to ThreadStone by the HSD Development Fund. Seeing each other there, reaffirmed the confidence in our partnership!

What has the partnership brought you?

‘The SME sector is increasingly prey to cybercrime’, says Van Etten, ‘...and if you profile yourself in the field of online security, your own data traffic needs to be optimally encrypted. In this respect, we see LeaderTelecom as the perfect partner. The SSL certificates provided, form the basis of the quality of our own services. Therefore, you would only work with a party you trust completely.’

Why can you recommend it to others?

The competitive rates and fast distribution process are key conditions for the pleasant partnership.

LeaderTelecom innovates; something we are also
very committed to.

The fact that both parties are members of HSD provides an extra boost to the contact. We recognise the value of our own customer testimonials and are therefore happy to explain why the partnership with LeaderTelecom meets our own high standards!
