Founded in 1995, Noesis offers services and solutions to support its clients in the digital transformation and development their businesses. It provides solutions focused on infrastructures, software, quality, and people to create a sustainable and transversal value for all sectors. Since 2020, Noesis has integrated Altia, a Spanish company listed on the stock exchange. With this integration, Noesis now belongs to a group with more than two thousand employees, three data centers and 20 offices across four continents.
The cybersecurity area is a strong bet of Noesis, which, throughout the last years, has been reinforcing its services and specialization of its teams, acting in five fundamental areas: Cybersecurity and Intelligent Monitoring; Identity and Access Management; Privileged Access Management; SIEM and End-User & Mobile Security.
Our vision is based on a cybersecurity framework, founded on technologies that are proven world leaders in each of these areas, such as Darktrace, Delinea (formerly Thycotic), Sailpoint, Rapid 7 or Microfocus, among others. This way, we intend to ensure a holistic and structured approach to provide our clients with technological capabilities capable of facing the current level of sophistication of cyber-attacks and allow the detection, investigation and response of the organization against cyber-attacks in real-time, says José Manuel Gomes, IT Operations, Cloud & Security Associate Director at Noesis.

Currently, they are in the middle of the strategic plan outlined for 2021-2023, which contemplates an ambitious goal of growth and internationalization. So far, all the goals defined in that strategic plan have been met.
Noesis' bet on cybersecurity has found an echo in the market, especially in the last few years, driven by the pandemic context and the fact that this topic is increasingly on the agenda of the CIOs of the main companies.
