EMEA Based Public Sector Client

EMEA public sector client - LoughTec Cyber Security Company

The Challenge

To give an EMEA-based public sector client the ability to ingest/receive files into their secure network (photos, video, Excel spreadsheets, Word documents etc) safely and without threat. When a public sector organisation opens up its network to the wider world, they immediately become a target for cybercriminals. There has been significant growth in cyber criminality in the form of high-profile ransomware campaigns in recent years.

Cybercriminals seek to exploit human or security vulnerabilities to steal passwords, data or money directly. The most common cyber threats include hacking (including social media profiles and email passwords); phishing (bogus emails asking for security information and personal details); malicious software (including ransomware through which criminals hijack files and hold them to ransom); distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks against websites (often accompanied by extortion).

The Outcome

LoughTec has built a cloud environment, where a public sector client can process files to ensure that they can receive files into their network safely. How? We have used two key pillars of our cybersecurity technology stack to remove unknown and malicious threats before the files come into their network, AV multiscanning and deep content disarm and reconstruction (CDR). We delivered safe files with 100% of threats eliminated within milliseconds so that the organisation’s workflow was not interrupted.


LoughTec’s advanced cyber security solution protects the client from file-based threats:

  • A safe and secure data workflow to ingest files into the client’s network.
  • A safe and secure workflow to transfer files to other public sector departments.
  • Enabled the retainment of all file metadata to ensure file evidence was legally compliant for court purposes.
  • Unknown threats like steganography are now no longer a worry or a concern.
  • Manpower savings – video evidence can now be uploaded directly to the client, meaning personnel do not need to travel to site to collect such evidence.
  • Video and photographic evidence can be collected quickly, safely, legally and efficiently.
