About us

Fortbridge is a family business, started by two highly skilled brothers with more than 20 years of experience in the security industry working across various sectors. Our team is specialised in application and cloud security, holding the AWS/Azure/GCP security certifications.

Adrian Tiron, co-founder of Fortbridge, added “Security certifications can be a hit and miss sometimes, you have to really know which one to go after. We’ve always been very selective about the certifications we pursued, and we knew that CREST is something we absolutely need to have. We are very happy now that we have achieved this accreditation!”
